It’s not a secret that if you’re working in an office you’ll spend quite a lot of time working on your keyboard. If you’re one of the majority people, you’re still using the traditional type keyboard. You should at least consider switching to a mini keyboard to reduce stress and strain on your hands, wrists and even your shoulder and upper arm. Here are the main reasons having an ergonomic mini keyboard may help you reduces stress.
Size Provides Versatility
The smaller size of the mini keyboards allows you to increase the flexibility of your placement of the keyboard keyboard for making beats. A wrong placement of the keyboard can make your eyes strain, place stress on your neck and shoulders, and force your wrists into a tight position. A mini keyboard almost any place, thus allowing you to keep your upper body in place for less strain and stress. One good example is with the laptop. If you’re using laptops, there are several options regarding the distance you can place the keyboard. If you are like most laptop users, you’ll want to place it so the viewing screen is easily readable. There is little thought given to wrist and hand placement. The use of a wireless mini keyboard in place of your laptop’s keyboard will give you the possibility of placing both the display screen as well as the keyboard in good ergonomic locations.
Layouts Improve to Meet Needs
Traditional keyboards were designed before the advent of the mouse. Numeric keypads were a common use in the early keyboards. That’s the reason the numeric pad is normally placed on the right side. With the latest mini keyboards you can choose to place your numeric keypad placed on the left hand side or even to remove it altogether. The right side of the mini keyboard is suitable for a touchpad that can replace your mouse.
A replacement for your mouse using a touchpad that is attached to the keyboard can be beneficial both functionally and ergonomically. You’ll be able to browse, scroll as well as zoom in and out quicker with the touch pads. Additionally, you’ll notice that you’re not pulling and straining to use your mouse.
There is also a mini keyboard with a wrist rest. For many, a wrist rest allows placement of the hands and wrist to provide the necessary neutrality for optimal comfort and less stress.
With all the useful and ergonomic improvements in mini keyboards, it possible to replace all your traditional keyboards. If you’re at home with your multimedia device, traveling to work, or working at the workstation at your office the mini keyboard offers you the ultimate in ergonomics and function for today’s demands.
