If you spend most of the day sitting at a computer, you have probably noticed a crucial piece is missing from the collection of office equipment you call home. You sit in a comfortable chair, work on a properly designed desk with a depression for the keyboard and the monitor at just below eye height, and yet by the end of the day you find you are experiencing numbness and tingling in your forearms. Did someone forget to add in a support where it is desperately needed?

In fact they did, and the problem predates computers by a good century. Because there was no such thing as a mousepad and typewriters sat squarely in the middle of the desk, repetitive stress injuries were few and far between before the advent of the computer. Today we spend most of our time with the same arms in a state of suspended animation, the maintenance of which requires a heroic effort from a set of muscles that get far too little exercise throughout the day.

Arm Supports Just Make Sense

That's where the many great benefits of arm supports can truly shine. More bracing than a padded mouse pad, arm supports do exactly what their name implies, holding your forearms in a comfortable position from which they may swivel freely to type, manipulate the mouse or surf the Web. Most chronic pain sufferers who try them swear it is like their desk finally makes sense with the way they use it daily.

Ergonomic accessories are creeping into the workplace, and today anyone looking for carpal tunnel solutions has more options than ever before. Repetitive stress injuries are more than just a fancy name for soreness, they can be a precursor to devastating loss of function, even paralysis. Do yourself a favor and check out what the right kind of arm supports can do to bring your entire workplace experience back into comfortable, dynamic balance.
