Shoplet Palm Support Fellowes Product Review


Fifteen years ago I would have use my computer for a few specific tasks.  Typing a project for a college course- something of that nature.  I know I certainly didn’t spend the amount of time on my computer I do now.  Obviously, the internet has a plethora of options and things to do.  Most of us spend a day working online, only to spend the evening doing those “fun” things as well.

More than once I  have found myself suffering from sore palms.  My blog is a business and all that typing (this post included:) puts strain on my palms.  This is a problem I had never experienced before until recently.  It is an odd place to ache.  But consider where your palms are as you are on your computer.  Enough constant continuous motion places pressure on this area.

Until I received my recent shipment from Shoplet (an online store dedicated to office supplies) it didn’t even occur to me that I could use products to help with this discomfort.  Uh duh.  Of course, they make something to help!  Obviously I couldn’t be the only person with this problem.

I received two different products to test.  First the Fellowes Memory Foam Gliding Palm Support w/Mouse Pad. This product is a great way to directly address the sore palm problem.

This device attaches directly to your house.  You simply make sure to use your mouse on the provided pad for easy operation.  Your palm therefore always sits on a cushy surface.  The product attaches to your mouse with easy sticky strings that attach on the sides of your mouse.  This product is easy to use with almost any mouse.

While attaching the mouse was easy, it does take a bit more effort to get used to the feel of using this device.  You do have to move your hand a bit differently.  But for those how have serious issues with palm support this transition will be a necessity.

The other product I received was the Fellowes Memory Foam Keyboard Palm Support.  This wrist rest is super cushy.  It seems to be made of one of those gel-like substances.

As you can see in the picture on the product packaging it fits right below your standard keyboard.

While I love the cushions on this pad, it isn’t the type of product that will work with every type of keyboard.  I mostly write on my laptop.  When I have my computer set up on a solid device I can put it right before the laptop.  In this instance my palms are not comforted as I type, but ultimately I can rest my hands there.  However, obviously whenever I move my laptop from this place I am outta luck.

Instead we found a better fit with my husband’s computer.  He was able to actually place the cushion on his keyboard.

You’ll really want to keep in mind your particular keyboard before purchasing this keyboard pad.

I think if you are suffering from palm/wrist discomfort while typing you’ll have to determine which product will work the best for you.  Unfortunately you might not really know until you give each a try.  Overall I found the keyboard palm support to be much easier to get accustomed to, however the gliding mouse support is a steady constant way to keep your wrist in comfort.
