a day and I'm already hooked!"

Daily Telegraph Overworked Fingers Get a Rest
Recently, I started to worry about a niggling pain in my
wrists and lower forearm. On the same day that I linked this with
using a computer mouse, help in the form of a "MouseBean" Hand
Rest arrived in the post.
There are two soft pads on a bean-shaped support which has
an attachment to stick it to the mouse. The hand rests on the
pads and keeps the wrist straight. This helps to reduce pressure
on tendons and on the median nerve as it passes through the
Overuse of the fingers with a bent wrist can lead to
inflammation of the protective tendon sheath and the risk of
repetitive strain injury. Another potential risk is carpal tunnel
syndrome, which triggers painful tingling in three of four
fingers – usually at night.
This nifty gadget worked first time for me and I became an
instant fan; it moves easily about the mousemat and I am glad my
niggling pain did not have time to get worse.
"I've found fixed wrist rests on mouse pads to be particularly
uncomfortable, but the 'bean is very comfortable in use. I'm no
expert on RSI and the peculiarites of the human anatomy, but I do
know what feels "nice" - and the 'bean does make my mouse usage
much more comfortable. The thing is, at this price, it's not
going to break the bank to find out. ...Like the wheel on the
back of my mouse, I reckon I'll miss it when I use someone else's
PC that isn't equipped with one."
Pros: Very comfortable to use
"Do yourself a favour this Christmas - get yourself a gizmo
and then give your wrists a rest with a MouseBean® Hand
"If you don't want to end up doing yourself a mischief by
rupturing your wrists using your mouse, splash out on one of
these ultra-comfortable rests."
The product has also been featured in an ever-growing
list of consumer and trade publications:
"Rest your Wrist on a Bean."
"The average CAD user apparently clicks their mouse 17,000 times
a day, making architects prime candidates for repetitive strain
injury (RSI)... At around £6.99, the MouseBean® Hand Rest
should be worth a try, particularly since its jellybean range of
colours makes it an ornament to the desktop."
