Over the last 15 months, we’ve seen all kinds of imaginative home office solutions, ranging from the use of garden furniture right through to dodgy DIY designs pulled together with building scraps from the garage. However, you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to create a fully functional workspace at home using ergonomic aids designed specifically for the job at hand. We’ve pulled together a handful of examples that will help keep both your body and mind in good working order.

Keeping your wrist well-supported while using a mouse and keyboard over prolonged periods is essential, and that’s where gel wrist rests come into play. When used correctly, these rests cushion the wrist, keeping them in a neutral position and reducing the strain.
The ErgoSoft Mousepad combines both a high-performance mousepad for optimal tracking and a gel wrist rest in one concise unit that keeps your wrist in good shape and the office tidy.
