    I think this is something that there are lots of opinions and support both for and against, but I recently got a balance ball for the office that I sit on. It’s helped me become more aware of my posture and forces me to sit up straight.

      We found that average use is about 3 months before people move back to normal chairs.

    Elevating the back of the keyboard is *not* “more natural” for your wrist. An ergonomic typing position is one in which your wrist and fore-arms are flat and your fingers are typing on keys that are all below your wrist. The traditional flat Mac laptop keyboards are *better* for your wrist than the desktop keyboards; something that tilts your laptop *backward* would, in theory, be even better. But the BaseLift is basically designed to promote wrist injury. Hunching to look at a laptop screen is bad for your neck, but unless you actually elevate the laptop and pack a separate flat keyboard, you’re actively making things worse for your wrists when you use it.

    For the past decade, I’ve relied on an Advantage Pro keyboard from Kinesis that is, indeed, split, but the keys are positioned in small concavities — below the level of my wrists which makes typing effortless… and extremely fast.
