When you work on a computer but you’re seldom at a desk that actually accommodates your height and comfort needs, you look for accessories to make the experience less strenuous. You want to make sure you’re not doing your body any harm, as long-term effects usually mean surgery. To make sure you’re going the ergonomic route, you don’t want to buy yourself a better desk, but you can buy pieces to make yours a better one.
Don’t go thinking that you’re going to be sawing pieces of another desk off, as what you are actually going to use is more of a support system for your arm to make sure that you’re getting the level of comfort you deserve. The Mouse Pad Arm-Stand will not only give you a solid space to mouse around on at a height that is comfortable for you, but forearm and wrist support as well. It’s made of a strong ABS plastic, and is said to be easy to install.
You have options to either Velcro it onto the armrests, or use a clamp to fix it onto your desk. It rotates 180 degrees, because it’s flat and is affixed at a hinge point with the clamp, and has grippy surfaces with raised plastic bits to make sure your arm doesn’t slip off, and your mouse can’t escape. This is a $25 desk accessory that will certainly help relieve some of that neck, shoulder and wrist strain.
