Adjust Your Keyboard Pull up close to your keyboard.Position the keyboard directly in front of your body. Adjust the keyboard height so that the shoulders are relaxed and keep your elbows in slightly open direction and hands and wrists straight. Wrist rests can help maintain neutral postures and pad hard surfaces. Wrist rests are used to rest the palms between keystrokes. Avoid using excessively wide wrist rests that are higher than the space bar of your keyboard. Place the pointer as close as possible to the keyboard.
