How Can an Ergonomic Keyboard Help Your Business?
The biggest problem with traditional keyboards is that the keys are laid out straight and flat, causing users to splay their hands in unnatural positions.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration estimates that employers pay $20 billion in workers’ compensation claims every year for RSI-related injuries.
14 in 15 Don’t Report
On average, for every 1 person who reports RSI-related pain, 15 people do not, letting their injuries worsen until they eventually need to get surgery or drop out of the workplace altogether.
Goldtouch has saved dozens of companies millions of dollars (including one company that saved $14 million per year) just by employing Goldtouch ergonomic solutions throughout their organization.
Why Use An Adjustable Ergonomic Keyboard?
Using a standard, flat keyboard for just 20 minutes per day can result in injuries. Each year, thousands of people develop pain, numbness, or tingling in their hands and wrists after typing on a standard keyboard for several hours a day.
Carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injuries are common among those who type for several hours a day. When your hands and wrists are in an unnatural position and repetitively making the same motions, it causes strain on both your hands and wrists. Over time, this can result in repetitive stress injuries (RSI), most notably Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is becoming more common and is actually caused by compression of the median nerve, causing pain, weakness, tingling, or even numbness in the hands and wrists. If left untreated (usually with surgery or physical therapy), it can lead to permanent nerve damage.
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, you may be suffering from a Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). With so many jobs requiring the use of technology, it’s more important than ever to use an ergonomic keyboard.
When looking for an ergonomic keyboard you should first make sure it is adjustable. The adjustable nature of Goldtouch ergonomic keyboards fit your body to support your typing posture. They can split in the middle, allowing you to spread the keyboard horizontally (splay) 30 degrees and vertically (tent) 30 degrees until it’s comfortable for your hands and wrists.
This relieves the unnatural angles you get with traditional keyboards and releases pressure on the joints and muscles. Because the keyboard allows you to type with your hands in a more natural position, the strain on your wrist and hands is greatly reduced. This helps prevent and alleviate the symptoms of RSI for all types.
Goldtouch keyboards are also a great solution for workers who want or need to be in compliance with OSHA’s recommendations for ergonomic keyboards. For example, if you’re a business owner who supplies workstations for your employees, you can reduce their risk of experiencing RSIs on the job.
If you’ve dealt with worker’s comp claims due to RSIs, you know how frustrating they can be. Replacing your team’s flat keyboards with high-quality ergonomic ones can reduce the frequency of these claims.
