Neutral wrist position for typing
When typing on a keyboard, keep your wrists in a neutral position, not flexed downward or extended upward, to avoid repetitive strain injuries. To check your wrist position, place your wrist, palm facing down, on a flat, hard surface. Put a Band-Aid lengthwise over the top of your wrist, and then move to your keyboard and type. If the Band-Aid stretches or goes slack, your wrists aren't in a neutral position.
