Your keyboard’s letters and numbers should be in the middle of your desk, and your mouse and keyboard should be as close together as possible. Your hands and forearms should be in a straight line, and your elbows and wrists should be at the same height (or just below). Don’t wildly bend your wrist up or down when you’re typing. You might find it easier to use a trackball instead of a mouse.
Let’s start working on a good typing position together! When you type, you shouldn’t bend your wrists up or down. Bring the keyboard down to where your elbow is. Your keyboard should be flat on the desk or slightly tilted away from you. Make sure your elbows are open at a 90- to 110-degree angle.
The best place for your keyboard is on a flat surface just below elbow level. If at all possible, your ergonomic keyboard should have a small negative tilt that slopes away from you. This lets your arms naturally follow the downward slope of your thighs while keeping your elbows open at 90 to 110 degrees. This keeps your shoulders and forearms from getting tense and relieves pressure.
Experts say that a keyboard should be set up so that it is just below elbow height. Your keyboard should either be flat on the desk or slightly tilted away from you. The open angle of your elbows should be between 90 and 110 degrees. Your shoulders and forearms will loosen up as a result. In order to cause a negative tilt, a keyboard should be ergonomic. Since the keyboard will be tilted away from you, your hands and arms should follow the way your thighs are tilted. Keep your arms and elbows as close to your sides as you can while you type. When you rest, your arms should be at an angle of 90 degrees or less.
Your elbows should be at a 90-degree angle by your sides, and your neck and shoulders should be in a comfortable position for you. From this position, your wrists and hands should be straight or in a neutral position, as shown in the figure.
It’s better for your hands and wrists to type on a flat keyboard, but it’s even better to type on a keyboard that slopes down. The negative tilt reduces the amount of finger movement needed for each keystroke while keeping the wrists straight and neutral.
The best way to type is to sit up straight at a desk with your shoulders relaxed and your feet flat on the floor. Having the right posture is very important, especially for people who type for a long time every day. By doing this, you can avoid injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome that can happen when you do the same thing over and over again.
