The short answer? Yes, you really do.
Aside from your office chair, your keyboard is the one piece of office equipment most able to cause real physical injury if used incorrectly over a long period of time. Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is the most common and most-often diagnosed computer-related condition people face, and RSI to the hands and arms resulting from improper keyboard and mouse use can cause serious problems later in life.
Luckily, RSI is easy to prevent. With ergonomic tools and a little conscientious attention, you can keep your joints healthy and ensure you’re able to enjoy all the fun things waiting for you after work is done.
