Lots of people say their work is a pain, and according to a new Microsoft Healthy Computing Survey, most of them aren’t kidding. Of those surveyed, 85 percent said they experience discomfort on a daily basis as a result of their workspace setup.
The survey coincides with Microsoft’s announcement of the next evolution of its ergonomic products – the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop –, the goal of which was to create something beautiful without sacrificing the ergonomic benefits provided by the industry-renowned Natural Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse.
The Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop is a combination of the Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard and the Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse. The keyboard incorporates a split layout designed to help position the wrists and forearms in a natural, relaxed position.
The palm rest is cushioned and the keyboard has a domed shape to reduce wrist pronation. It also allows for reverse-tilt angles to promote a straight, neutral wrist position. All these adjustments to a traditional keyboard put your body in the best possible position for comfort and ergonomics.
The Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse also encourages natural postures. The mouse is taller than most mice, thereby reducing contact between desktop surface and the underside of your hand, which helps minimize carpal tunnel pressure. And the angle of the mouse puts the forearm in a more relaxed position. All these ergonomic benefits should change the way you feel when using a mouse for long periods of time.
The complete Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop set will be sold for USD 129.95.
