Ergonomic Mousing Techniques

  • Do not rest your wrist or forearm on the desk while you move the mouse.
  • Hold your mouse loosely because gripping creates tension in the fingers.
  • Do not just use the wrist to move the mouse, use the whole arm and shoulder.
  • Do not lift your pinkie, hold the mouse lightly with all fingers.
  • Use a light touch to click or even better use software that automates clicking.

Ergonomic Typing Techniques

  • Keep the wrist in a neutral position: parallel to your desk and the middle finger must be in line with the wrist and forearm.
  • Don't rest your wrist while typing, let it float. Only rest your wrist while you are NOT typing.
  • Use a light touch when pressing keys.
  • Don't stretch your fingers to reach for faraway keys. Instead move your arm to position your finger over the key and then hit it.
  • Do not hold your thumbs rigid or your pinkies up. Curve your fingers.
  • Don't use two fingers of one hand for two-key combinations. Use one finger of one hand to hold Shift, Ctrl, or Alt down, and then hit the second key with a finger from the other hand.
