Experiencing pain while typing? With cushioned keyboard there will be no more pain on the wrist while typing. JYaqoob is working alone to design a cushion for keyboard that has balls like in massage chair to help release the pressure on the wrist. The name of the company is J SPA, J from the first letter of the inventor and SPA for proving comfort because the balls that will be used to make the keyboard cushion will be from the same balls as have been used in massage chair.
Currently I am writing a research paper about the side effects of typing, in the research paper, I included research about repetitive stress injures and carpal tunnel syndrome. I have included some summary of my research paper in below explaining more about how using typing can make repetitive stress injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome over time.
Many people are typing instead of writing and that’s due to time consumption and comfort, however those who are using typing in their daily life are now facing pain on their wrist due to wrong typing postures. The right postures fr typing is having the wrist on the same line as the keyboard. According to United States Department of Labor, if the wrist was lower than the keyboard they it would bend the wrist and causes pressure on the wrist, while many people would think if the wrist was higher than the keyboard it wouldn’t put pressure on the wrist but that’s a wrong fact. According to Healthy Typing, lifting the wrist high breaks the alignment of the hand and arm, causes fatigue, and makes it hard to type.
Even though doing the right posture of typing can be tiring sometimes, many people tend to perform the wrong postures because it’s easy for them. With having a cushion and balls on the keyboard will help them. The balls will be inside the cushions that will give a message to the wrist. and the cushion itself can be attached to any keyboard to make it easy on people to carry and take them anywhere.
Throughout this semester, the first six weeks, I will keep researching the side effects on wrong typing postures and repetitive stress injures, and carpal tunnel syndrome and keyboard wrist rest effects, for the second six weeks, I will start ordering materials and making the design.
