Mouse wrist rest   (+5, -1)  [vote for, against]
for added comfort

Regular use of a mouse can lead to aching wrist and so came the mousemat with the soft wrist rest. Nowerdays most people use an optical mouse which may not require a mousemat.

To stop people getting sore wrists add the new ACME wrist rest which is the same material but formed into a wrist shaped curve with low friction backing. this attatches using screw in clamps to either side of the back of the mouse providing happy movement at all times.

(?) Mouse Pad w/ wrist rest http://www.cleanswe.../skugroup14262.html
Sorta like this, but attached to the mouse? [AfroAssault, Jan 10 2006]

{Ian Tindale}I agree. I have one that a firm was giving away a few years ago. I noticed that since I got it my wrist is no better, and I never seem to get much work done anymore.

It has a Lycra covering, and, as I have a picture of Kate Bush as my PC wallpaper, I swear it feels just like her arse.

What is odd, though, is that my wrist has become extremely supple.

Thanks [Afro], exactly like the link but attatched to the mouse. I also put in the design it was curved to fit the wrist better and to move with the wrist better.

[-] I don't think you've really thought about this, attaching the rest to the mouse requires you to move your whole arm just to move it, with a seperate rest you can manoeuvre the mouse with your fingers and not need to move your wrist at all.

Maybe it should attach around your wrist like a watch. It would be padded on wour wrist, and smooth to glide over the table. It could be integrated into a watch strap (or stick on with Velcro™) for people who wear their watch on their mouse-hand.
