Pain in my right wrist and arm has led me on a demand to find better input peripherals, at least at work.
So far I’ve been using an apple wireless keyboard (not the latest model) and an apple magic mouse.
I have to live with psoriasis, and lose lots of skin on my hands, so my mice always break the scroll wheel. The magic mouse is a life saver, because of it’s glassy surface, and no physical wheel. It always glides, it always works 100%. BUT the magic mouse is very low profile. 2cm low. You also can’t rest your palm on it, or it won’t work properly. So I have to arch my wrist and palm continuously to use the mouse. That is taking it’s toll on my body.
I’ve since replaced the mouse with a Logitech MX Master.
It’s bigger and meaner that’s for sure. Let’s see how well the scroll wheel handles me ;)
Rubber dome, low-profile, chiclet style keyboards be gone! I’m on the market for a TKL (Ten-key-less: has no numpad) keyboard for work. Since I’m portuguese, I’m looking for an ISO PT layout. Best solution so far: WASD Keyboards.
On the list so far:
- Mech keyboard
- Cherry MX Blue switches
- ISO layout
- PT variant
I’m also in love with the planck keyboards olkb.com, and want to buy/build one for use at home. I hope to have news in the near future!
