Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Working at a desk all day can cause a lot of strain on your body. For those working on a computer several hours each day, it's advisable they create an ergonomic setup to help prevent arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other repetitive stress injuries. The Wristocat is one ergonomic product you can add to your workspace to help prevent such conditions.
The Wristocat is the "first and only wrist support that uses a friction-free magnetic barrier to enable precise, cat-like movement and absorb repetitive stress." Unlike other wrist supports available on the market, the Wristocat moves with the user and comfortably supports every move. It's innovative design allows users to effortlessly alternate between their mouse, keyboard, and touchpad, all while keeping the user's wrist straight and fingers relaxed.
The Wristocat was fully funded on Indiegogo last May and is estimated to begin shipping soon! Visit IndieGoGo for more information. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wristocat-hand-s-best-friend-design-gadgets--2#/
