Product Review- Fellowes Foam Keyboard and Mouse Supports
Thank you Shoplet and Fellowes for the opportunity to review these products.
When thinking of office supplies, usually I think of consumables like paper and pens. Not about things that make office work more comfortable.
However, lately I've been experiencing some wrist and hand fatigue, so given the chance to try out a wrist rest and keyboard pad, I was happy.
Fellowes Memory Foam Keyboard Palm Support
I like keyboard supports, this one has V shaping for your wrists in "home row" position. The Vs have just the right amount of angle to be very comfortable with a full sized keyboard. It doesn't raise them much, just enough to keep them in a better position for typing and to provide some support. The fabric is an anti-microbial shiny black. The foam filling is a nice memory foam with just the right amount of give. The base of it is a nice, grippy silicone that doesn't move when it's on a smooth surface.
Fellowes Memory Foam Gliding Palm Support w/Mouse Pad
The memory foam gliding palm support has a plastic piece that cups a standard mouse and little sticky tabs to grip it. The support is made of memory foam with a notch to cradle your wrist. The included mouse pad is a thin, textured plastic. The support is covered with the same anti-microbial shiny black fabric as the keyboard rest.
I like how well the palm support glides, and it has been really comfortable to use once I got used to it. The mouse pad works well with my optical mouse. I do wish it had the same sort of grippy bottom the keyboard rest has.
If you've had issues with your wrists because you're spending hours on a computer at work, these might help considerably. They are working well for me and I plan to get the keyboard wrist rest for my husband.
