The Best Ergonomic Keyboards and Accessories

How should you treat your carpal tunnel syndrom? 

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injury or tendinitis, or if you're trying to avoid it before it starts, the best thing you can do is get yourself an ergonomic workstation. I've been struggling with tendinitis for several years now, and every doctor I've spoken to has said that the best treatment is ergonomics. They even recommended ergonomics over rest, saying that the most important thing is to keep you arms in the correct posture to avoid further wrist strain.

If you can avoid typing, I would still recommend it. But when you do work, make sure you have the best products out there. Here are some of the things that worked for me:

Step number one: Get yourself some excellent voice recognition software.

Voice recognition software types as you speak. This will take a huge part of the burden off of your hands. Keep in mind, however, that you won't be able to use it for everything. Things like proper nouns (names, addresses, etc.) will be hard for it to recognize, as will some numerical data. So even if you have great software, you'll want an ergonomic keyboard and mouse to back it up. Also, I'd suggest spending at least $30 on a good microphone. 

Best voice-recognition software:

... for Mac users: MacSpeech
... for PC users: Dragon NaturallySpeaking

These two programs are essentially the same, since Mac ended up buying the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software. Basically it was the best thing out there, and still is. Don't bother with any other voice recognition program. These are the only ones that really work.


As someone whose problems began from using a mouse rather than typing, I can say with authority that a good mouse is crucial to reducing carpel tunnel and wrist pain. The Evoluent mouse is also referred to as "the handshake mouse," because it allows your wrist to

 remain in the natural, handshake position, as illustrated below. The twisting of the wrist bones when you use a regular mouse puts extra strain on every muscle and ligament in your wrist, and is likely to be the primary cause of repetitive strain injuries associated with typing.


This is what I use, and it's by far the most popular ergonomic keyboard out there. It works on a similar principle as the mouse, allowing your wrists to maintain their natural, un- twisted position. It's also called a split keyboard, because it's split in the middle with each side sloping downwards. Once I started using this I was able to type at least five times as much without pain. It's a very, very worth it. Read more about it here.

  2. I sit at my computer for almost eight hours a day every day for work. It's been over a year at this job but I'm starting to notice some pain in my hands at wrist. I love my job and don't want to have to quit because of an injury. Maybe I will have to try one of these keyboards and see if they help.

  10. Great article. Thanks.
    I'm working a lot with a keyboard and lately I started to feel a strong pain in my wrist.
    My physiotherapist recommended me an excellent hand training device for that and its really works!!! Afrer some period of workout with this device, I felt that my hands really became stronger and the pain is almost gone! Amazing! Guys, it is very recommended, really.
    I tried some kind of brands for this device, and each one of them was low quality and didn't do the work, or broken after a while, until I found the perfect one in Amazon that is high quality and doing the work great. For those who are interested, here is the link:

  18. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,Shingles, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,Bechet’s disease,Crohn’s disease,Cushing’s disease,Heart failure,Multiple Sclerosis,HypertensionFatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Autism,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicitySyndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans ProgresSclerosis,Seizures,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases,,Copd,Glaucoma., Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease.Enlarged prostate,Osteoporosis.
