Compact Keyboards

Few workers recognize the extent to which well-designed compact keyboards can protect their very physical well-being. In the past, of course, even cramped cubicles, where normal-sized keyboards left little room to comfortably place the mouse, posed only a slight threat of repetitive stress injuries. But today, that is no longer the case.

Thanks to a relentless societal push to minimize or eliminate diversity of physical activity in the workplace--a push that has been extraordinarily successful--most workplaces have become dangerous for a wholly new reason. By creating environments where we no longer have to leave our computers to work productively for hours, we have all but guaranteed that the low-level stresses we place on our bodies will become far larger concerns. The result is that something as seemingly minor as mouse placement has become a significant ergonomic risk.

Compact Keyboards Clear Room

Simply put, expertly-designed compact keyboards clear room to organize even small desktops in an ergonomically efficient manner. That means that, with the help of top ergonomic manufacturers' online ergonomic FAQs, anyone can now alleviate the minor stresses associated with repetitively pointing and clicking an uncomfortably placed mouse. Best of all, the top compact keyboards save desk space without reducing the size of the keys themselves.

Now that you can protect yourself from significant injury in such a simple way, why would you elect not to do so? Make a smart decision, and you will be able to toil comfortably and productively hour upon grueling hour. Fail to do so, and those low-level strains may catch up with you faster than you might think.
