Keyboard Wrist Support

Keyboard Wrist Support

Are you needing a little extra support while typing on your keyboard or using your mouse? A Pinnacle employee has made some quick and easy Keyboard / Mouse Wrist Supports for a couple people in the office. These supports are anything but new; they’ve been around for quite some time and come in many different shapes, colors, and styles. The style created here can be done by anyone who knows how to sew –  beginner to advanced. These homemade wrist supports are a great office gift that is inexpensive and useful – they can also double as a heat pack for those cold days in the office. Just place them in the microwave for a few minutes and you have your very own heat pack.
