When you work intensively with the mouse, you are risking health problems such as RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) or CANS (Complaints of Arm, Neck and/or Shoulder).

When you work with a standard mouse, your hand moves in an unnatural position (turned inward) and you are making small, detrimental movements from the wrist. This may lead to overstrain. That’s why for intensive mouse use an ergonomic mouse is recommended.
An ergonomic keyboard helps to prevent computer-related injuries such as RSI. The shape of the keyboard determines your working posture. It is important to type in a relaxed and natural position.

Do you regularly have to look at documents while working on the computer? Using a document holder helps to create an ergonomic working posture.
