I m a graphic and video artist, so I m at my computer using my mouse constantly every day. My career literally depends on my ability to move a mouse with precision. When I started having problems with carpal tunnel, I reassessed my ergonomic setup at work and decided to buy this. As another review has stated, there is a bit of awkwardness between the bottom of the mouse and the inside curve of the palm support, but I find that if I make adjustments to my hand s position on the mouse instead of the support, I avoid losing the correct positioning on the support and get the full benefit. I also decided to continue using the mouse pad. It s not the best mouse pad out there, but it does the job.
I ve used gel pads before on my keyboard and mouse, and I still use one on my keyboard, but even with those you still feel some uncomfortable pressure in the center of your wrist. That s why the groove in the center of this product is the best part: it takes away all pressure on my wrist. Effectively the only parts of your hand or wrist that are under pressure are the edges under your thumb and little finger.
I started noticing relief from my symptoms almost immediately. By the end of my first day there was almost a 100% change in the severity of my symptoms. I ve continued using it and now I don t have any carpal tunnel symptoms in that wrist at all. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to relieve pressure on their wrist at their computer.
