Ergonomic Mouse Keyboard Pads Improve Posture & Reduce strain

While ergonomic mouse keyboard pads are most noted to help wrist or carpal tunnel problems, we have reviewed how they can help elbow pain. Interestingly, many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are due to nerve entrapment of the pronator teres muscle, which pinches the nerve that goes to the wrist. The muscle is located in the forearm and near the elbow.

pronator teres causing carpal tunnelChronic pronation, palm facing down; as in typing or mouse use can lead to irritation, muscle hypertrophy, and formation of adhesions or scar tissue that entraps the median nerve. The elbow is affected by positioning of the hands and shoulders.

Remember, elbow problems like tennis elbow is caused by irritated wrist extensors, so having the wrist actively extended for long periods can cause long term issues with pain and loss of function. Similarly, the wrist can be affected directly or through excessive pronation of the hand from the pronator teres in the arm. This can cause what is sometimes recognized as “pronator teres syndrome”, where the median nerve is irritated passing through the muscle causing pain, tingling and numbness in the forearm and hand.

As part of reducing the effects of elbow pain, using ergonomic computer pads can help those who spend long periods doing computer work and even gaming. They are readily available and can be a very cost effective ergonomic intervention to help with wrist and elbow pain. You also need to consider ergonomics to help pain in other areas as well.

According to a 2004 study in Journal of Orthopaedic Sports & Physical Therapy, using an ergonomic keyboard wrist pad helps decrease wrist extension through neutral positioning and thereby keeping tension force of the forearm to a minimum.

A 2003 study in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine indicates The risk of arm pain is increased by a factor of 8 in those using a mouse device more than 30 hours per week.

A study in the Scandinavian Journal of Work & Environmental Health indicates proper alignment of a mouse in relation to the shoulder to reduce stress. They also indicated reduced activity when the arm was supported, as in a chair armrest. Reduces neck and shoulder muscles were noted with the work surface to be less than 1 inch above elbow height.
