“The new line of wrist rests by Kensington finally gives options for support with several different types of keyboards,” said Melanie Berry, MPT, Vertical Ergonomics. “The keyboard user is no longer stuck with the choice of only one sized wrist rest. Kensington’s varying sizes of wrists rest can accommodate the ultra-slim to the mechanical, or the compact to the natural. As a Physical Therapist and Ergonomics Specialist, I am very thankful for Kensington’s new line of wrist rests. The variety of sizes and shapes enable me to recommend the ideal wrist rest to fit the different shapes and sizes of keyboards, mice and touchpads.”

“Keyboards are getting slimmer but wrist rests are not,” said Arita Pan, Global Product Manager, Kensington. “We developed the ErgoSoft Wrist Rest family in the same spirit we develop all our ergonomic products – so that users can have the most comfortable, and therefore productive, computing experience possible. Our new ErgoSoft Wrist Rests deliver unparalleled soft-to-the-touch comfort and ergonomic benefits.”
