Keyboard. Flaps or no flaps?

My wrists feel more comfortable with them up. They feel awkward with them down.

I use them, ie I keep my keyboard in a raised position. Cable routing kind of dictates it, and it seems to make it easier to hit keys correctly in a raised position.

I do however have no idea how to vote in the Poll. Are the feet raised up or the keyboard? If the feet are up, the keyboard is flat...if the keyboard is up, the feet are down. :V

it's better for your wrist for them to be down


Bull crap... I been typing with them up for 20+ years and never had problems.

and how much longer will you be typing?
and how many other bodies are in the world are there?
typing raised could affect you after 1 week or 60 years (or just combine with other strains)

There are no srains unless you do not know how to properly rest your wrists. You might just be one of the unlucky ones that have the problem. Or I just might be lucky . Going off of studies and then assuming that it will affect everyone is just bull in itself and you can not do that.

If it took 60 years, I'd sooner attribute it to just being over 60 years old than to rather or not they used their keyboard raised or not...


And well, every keyboard is different. Different layouts, different angles when down or up, different key positioning, etc etc... In my case, laying the keyboard "flat", with the way my keyboard/chair are positioned, it means my wrists feel like they're stretching over/down to get past the front edge of the keyboard and access the keys. Using the feet brings the keys closer to the seated position of my hands and makes typing more comfortable to me.

Of course there's a genetic predisposition, but the factors that cause carpal tunnel remain the same, and I haven't seen a good case for resting your wrists without putting pressure on them, either.

Angling of the wrist when movement is occurring within the carpal tunnel is what causes an issue, but how much it affects a person is down the the individual. For a broad advisory, I'd still recommend having them down (as one has added potential harm, while the other does not). Physiology remains rather uniform between individuals on a broad scale.

Also important to take into account ergonomically is the desk height, and elbow angle, which can contribute to potential angling problems.

You are still free to do whatever you choose.
