sistawendy: (hopeful nun)
I've taken a few steps recently to combat repetitive strain injury:
  1. I now use a Kinesis Advantage2 keyboard at work. The layout is different enough from my old Microsoft Natural that I'm still climbing the learning curve after about a week. It may necessitate getting another one for home to prevent the hangover of switching back and forth.
  2. Not using any damn built-in laptop keyboards. I swear those things are a major problem. I do have an MS Natural at home, but until recently I was only using it on my work machine, not my personal one.
  3. Ahem. Jilling off about half as often as I used to, which means it's less time-consuming as well. Ah, the tribulations of sex reassignment surgery, as mine was called at the time.
So is all of this working? I think so, but it's a little bit soon to tell.

Cool keyboard! I also find that laptops are just torture on the hands and wrists.

Do you notice a difference with the Kinesis, over the MS Natural?

I use the MS Natural at home and work. When I use my laptop now, I basically have to hunt and peck.

Thanks! The Kinesis is pricey but I will have my bargain-finding wife look for a good deal.

Same general topic: Have you used any ergonomic mice such as the Evoluent Handshake Mouse?

Also on ergonomics, I use an Uplift adjustable desk (stand, sit) and love it. At home that is. At work, I slump into my depressing cubicle workstation evidently designed for children or adults well under 5 feet tall.

My cube neighbor is taller than me, and he has to lower his chair so much his knees are almost on the ground.
