If you work in an office or spend long periods of time typing then you should be using an ergonomic keyboard. Holding your wrists at a strange and unnatural position to type is the cause for wrist pain in many people. A good ergonomic keyboard will force you to use the correct wrist position for typing which will eliminate potential pain and problems. Many ergonomic keyboards have a curved layout that makes keys easier to reach to reduce the use and strain of your wrists. A good ergonomic keyboard is a great gift idea because it will get a lot of use while also protecting your loved one from unintentional pain.
