The Important Ergonomic Computer Keyboard
Ergonomic keyboards encourage us to adopt an ergonomic typing posture.
This minimizes awkward postures that harms your wrists in the long run. For example, this picture below illustrates a bad typing posture. Its awkwardness may be bearable for a few minutes. But it will do you harm in the long run.
Bad typing posture
Thus, this is why using an ergonomic keyboard is important, especially if you spend long hours on the computer.
The ergonomic computer keyboard helps you adopt an ergonomic posture.
The contoured design of ergonomic keyboards provides support and makes typing less strenuous. If you have used a non-ergonomic computer keyboard, you'll notice your hands, wrists, elbows, arms and shoulders feeling more relaxed.
All the keys on an ergonomic keyboard are designed to be within reach of all of the user's fingers.
This minimizes overstretching and the amount of movement (and effort) of your user's hands and arms when typing.
Using The Ergonomic Keyboard
No doubt using an ergonomic keyboard is much better than not using one, there is still some discipline required using it.
One of the things to remember is to place the ergonomic keyboard at correct height and distance from the body. And at the same level as the elbows with the arms bend 90 degrees with an upright body posture.
