Wrist/Palm Rest 

CombiRest Uplift

Maintains straight wrist postures also when using a mouse – by means of a special Raised Mouse Mat 


  • Ergonomic benefits

      + The support provided by the Wrist/Palm Rest helps to reduce carpal tunnel symptoms, tingling, numbness or coldness in the hands. The rest helps to maintain straight wrist postures both during keystroke and periods of inactivity, by avoidance of bent wrist postures. .

      + The Rest and raised mouse pad together also do the same when using the mouse and during periods of inactivity.

      + The wrist/palm rest of CombiRest Uplift gives the best possible support: neither too hard nor too soft, thus avoiding the formation of creases under the wrist, which could hinder easy wrist movements.

      + The coating of the metal baseplate is matt, thus avoiding disturbing reflections.

      + The baseplate allows one to change one’s position, as the keyboard and mouse can be held alternatively on the desk top, on the chair arms or on the lap. Posture changes every now and then are ergonomically advantageous.


    Important ergonomic hints

       Thanks to its correct ergonomic design, the CombiRest Uplift should actually be called 'a palm rest' instead of the widely used term 'wrist rest'. (We haven't dropped the term 'wrist rest' because people would otherwise not easily find our product and instructions.)

    When typing, you should support your palms or hand heels, but not your wrist, on the rest. If you support your wrist on the rest then the pressure underneath your wrist may decrease the blood flow and compress the carpal tunnel.

    Without a wrist/palm rest, in periods of inactivity you would tend to lay your hands on the desk, keeping the fingers on the keyboard  - which leads to bad bent wrist postures. This becomes even worse if you rest your wrists on the desk edge. The best thing to do is to use the rest to support your palms but not your wrists.

    Other than ergonomic benefits

         + Additional space is gained on the desktop when the CombiRest Uplift is placed to fill desk corners. As a corner piece CombiRest Uplift is also remarkable because the wrist/palm rest and mouse mat are included in the price.

        + CombiRest Uplift comes with raised mouse mat.

        + Suitable for both for left- and right-handed users – the mouse pad can be placed on either side.

  •   + The raised mouse mat combined with the rest gives better support and reduces the pressure on the wrist because the pressure is spread over a larger area.

Environmentally-friendly materialsImage

  •    + The wooden board used under the padding is made of FSC certified material. The Forest Stewardship Council certificate means that the wood has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner.

     

       + The steel plate is fully recyclable. The powder coating of plate emits zero or near zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
