The IMAK Keyboard Wrist Cushion A10160 was ergonomically designed by an orthopaedic surgeon to give comfort and support to the wrist and forearm while using a computer keyboard and to help prevent and/or ease the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, by encouraging the wrist and hand to sit in the correct position. The keyboard wrist cushion conforms to any keyboard. It is also freezable, giving added relief from inflammation. The keyboard wrist cushion can also be used as a stress reliever like a stress ball.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition which is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the wrist, caused by inflammation. It can cause tingling, weakness and pain in the fingers and hand. People at risk from this debilitating syndrome include those with diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. Pregnancy can also bring on carpal tunnel syndrome due to inflammation. The other major cause is repeating the same hand and/or wrist movements over and over again such as prolonged use of a computer keyboard.
The fabric cover contains ergoBeads which not only support the wrist in the correct ergonomic position but also massage the wrist. The keyboard wrist cushion is fully washable and comes in the colour black. Simple hand wash in cold water, rinse well and air dry. Do not put in the tumble drier or use bleach or fabric softener.
Its special design means that movement is not restricted at all. The massaging effect of the beads increasing blood circulation and also promotes healthy muscle tissue.
