When you're typing all day, you're at risk for serious hand, wrist, and finger injuries if you're not taking care to set up an ergonomic workstation for yourself. That includes a desk at the right height for working, a chair that keeps your body aligned properly, and an ergonomic keyboard that can reduce the pain and fatigue of repetitive movements.
Let's face it; if you work at your computer for a living there's no way you want to risk a serious injury. The keyboard for computers was taken from the design that existed for typewriters. Typewriters have been around for hundreds of years, and so have the flat keyboards that don't take ergonomics into consideration. We spend more hours at our desks than people did a few decades ago. We need a different kind of keyboard.

Relaxed, Neutral Position
With the wave keyboard of the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo, you're able to keep your hands in a more natural position. If you flex your hands back, you'll feel a bit of strain as it pulls on your wrists. The proper position for your hands when typing is actually a flat position with the wrists lifted slightly and the fingers down to press on the keys.
This positioning relieves much of the stress that is placed on the wrists to maintain their awkward positioning while typing.
Cushioned Palm Rest for the Logitech Wireless Wave Combo
The cushion palm rest gives the wrists incredible support. If you learned to type years ago, the right way to type was to keep your wrist elevated and type without leaning the wrists. It's almost impossible to stay arched and not rest your arms and wrists while typing.
The palm lift elevates the wrist to ensure proper ergonomics and reversed slope with this fantastic keyboard. Instead of keeping the wrists flexed and the fingers elevated, there's a natural position to the hands that relieves much of the fatigue and stress of typing for hours.
One of the biggest problems with going ergonomic with your office set up is when you have a laptop. You'll end up stuck with the keyboard that's attached to the laptop. That may be true when you're taking the laptop on the go to the coffee shop or college classroom. You can actually attach the receiver to the laptop and use a wireless ergonomic keyboard and wireless contoured mouse to decrease the chance you'll end up with pain in your neck and shoulders.
Precision-Laser Mouse Included
The wireless mouse is contoured for ease of use. It works smoothly on a variety of surfaces and has rubber grips on the side. It has batteries already installed, and uses a standard AA battery when they need to be changed. The battery life of the pre-installed batteries are supposed to last up to 2 years.
