How does Carpio prevent wrist injuries?
In general, wrist rests can help prevent wrist injuries by lifting your wrist and therefore decreasing the harmful extension. One of the studies that support this statement was conducted by Harvard School of Public Health, Kettering University and Northeastern University and showed that raised palm support was associated with less wrist extension and lower applied forces to the mouse pad. Participants also reported less musculoskeletal discomfort when using a support. You can read the full study here.
However, regular wrist rests such as gel wrist pads aren’t really ergonomic and can even increase the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome by:
Applying pressure to the underside of the wrist (carpal tunnel) and compressing the tissues, therefore slowing down blood supply
Fixing your wrist position, which causes additional stress for your wrist as you are forced to move the mouse by rotating your wrist instead of using your whole arm and shoulder (larger, stronger muscles)
That's why Carpio reinforces pressure from the wrist to the lower palm (thenar and hypothenar part), so actually, it's a palm rest rather than a wrist rest. Also, it glides together with your hand to decrease the wrist deviation and enables the arm and shoulder motion.
Please note: It will take approximately 1-2 weeks for your hand to adjust to the glide. During this time please just continue to use the product.
