I told Shelagh how tips from a previous massage convinced me to shift from a backpack to a rolling suitcase and from medium heels to flat shoes. Now we're working on avoiding the issues many people get from lots of computer work: hunched shoulders, aching necks, painful wrists. I've ordered this just-released Goldtouch Go! portable ergonomic keyboard:
The Goldtouch site will charge $150 for international shipping, so order it from The Human Solution if you need it shipped internationally. The coupon code "ergonomics" may save you $10.
I thought about getting the Happy Hacking Lite keyboard, but I do actually like split keyboards. I also considered the Kinesis Advantage (too big) and the Kinesis Freestyle (too many accessories if I want the incline). The Goldtouch Go! looks like it'll be worth trying out.
Then I'll do what another coworker of mine does: prop the laptop on an overturned recycling bin so that it's at eye level, and then use a keyboard and mouse for good posture.
A little bit of preventive maintenance now can help me enjoy life much more and much longer in the future. =) What do you do for preventive maintenance?
