Some of you might not know about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it's some kind of a common source of hand numbness and pain. You can see some of CTS surgery pictures [WARNING: graphic content], hope you still good after seeing those.

And it's a big risk for anyone who works daily on a computer that use mouse and computer on bad position. Here are some good postions on mouse and keyboard usage for you:

Thanks for the reminder about posture. Lots of ppl have bad posture and wonder why they hurt at the end of the day.

The Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard - I used to hurt in my arms and wrists but this keyboard made a world of difference.

I keep my keyboard on my lap so I can turn my chair sideways and put my feet up. I have my chair at one end of the desk and the monitor at the other end so my neck doesn't bend much at all. I was just sitting here looking at my wrists and they look straight for the most part, I suppose there's times when they're bent either which way though.

I keep a folded up wash cloth behind my mouse that my wrist sets on when I use it. When it gets funky I can just wash it and use a fresh one. Much happier with this than I was with one of those mouse pads with the built-in wrist bubble things.

I followed the right position and everyone stared at me... maybe I was exaggerating.
