I've been gaming without soft pads for years and the callus on my right. How many Gaming redditors have wrist bone. Even if you don't play PC games just.

Up until recently, it's been all about right-angles. Your back should be straight, bent 90 degrees at your hips, butt flat. Knees 90 degrees, lower legs straight. Arms straight down at the shoulder, bent at the elbows, forearms parellel to each other There's been a few rumblings lately of being almost laid-back in your chair, in a semi-reclined position, being better for your lower back. I havent heard much about that yet.
I'm in IT support, spend most my day either at a machine or running to and from machines. I try to keep things straight and bends at 90 degrees, and I don't get many/any aches and pains from posture. Fender champ lap steel serial numbers.
Awesome thanks. I know what you mean. I did IT for a couple years and now am a full time programmer. I am learning that i spent a lot of time away from the computer in my old job, and i need to counteract that by being more ergonomic. I actually taught myself to type Dvorak because of it, and am thinking of getting a trackball mouse/ergo keyboard too.
Thanks for the link though, i know i don't sit strait enough, too much of a forward slouch =/ it's something i'm trying to work on constantly. I'm not on it quite as much as you are (I'd say 8h job + 3h private use = ~11 / day average - wow, this is scary), but this is still good advice! Turn it down for games where you need that accuracy or something, but otherwise try getting used to really high sensivity and you won't really need to move the mouse hand anymore. Also a big and smooth mousepad is really comfortable and I'd recommend it even if you don't play PC games just because it feels nice, I use the, it's quite big (400 x 320 mm) and has a silky smooth surface, which feels really nice on the hand. Those are not too expensive, I think I paid like ~20 USD.
