mouse cushion

I’m still dealing with sore thumbs, especially on the hand that operates the computer mouse, but this little bean bag wrist cushion is really comfy.  If you want to check it out, click le petit cushion.  I bought mine at Staples.

Does anyone else have any experience with repetitive stress thumb pain?  I tried a trackball style mouse, but the trackball was designed to be moved by the thumb…which wasn’t quite what I had in mind.  I’ve been googling for solutions, but haven’t found answers yet.

Imak has other products for arthritis pain, so I’m tempted to get the gloves and see if I can fiddle and type and annoy Banjo Man while wearing them.

    Although I don’t have the bad thumb problem, I use Dragon Natually Speaking a lot and it really works. You dictate and the words show up in the computer. Pretty Neat. It is very accurate.

    I use a laptop without a mouse. I only use one thumb to hit the space bar. I use my pointer or middle finger to work the mouse on the laptop. It took a while to get used to not using a mouse, but now I’m fine. At work I use a PC with a mouse, so I’m multi-talented.
    Good luck.
