Is your typing posture comfortable?
1. Press the keys gently
2. Allow your wrists to move freely. Do not fix your wrists in one position
3. Ensure your general posture is good, so your back is well supported in the chair
Fixing the wrists and pressing down hard on the keys means that the small muscles of the forearm have to work very hard, making them more prone to injury. Resting on the wrists can increase pressure on the nerves which can result in pain and numbness.
Remember these muscles were not designed for typing, so try not to make them work any harder than they have to. Typing gently, in good posture, minimises how much these muscles have to work.
