The Vertebral-Soft Arm Support was designed to address several of the issues associated with extended computer use. Traditional keyboard and mouse usage tends to place the weight of the forearms in front of the body, putting a continuous level of stress on the shoulders and the back vertebrae. The Vertebral-Soft addresses this by providing a unique arm support bar that is adjustable in both height and depth. This enables users to position it at the ideal comfort spot to maintain optimum support for the arms, transferring the imbalanced weight onto the arm support bar that is attached to the desk. When optimally positioned the Vertebral-Soft Arm Support can also ensure that the wrists are not permitted to drop into a position of extension, a risk factor for development of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The Vertebral-Soft Arm Support is constructed of heavy gauge steel that ensures rigidity and durability. The keyboard and right-hand mousing surface is 26.75" wide by 12" deep, and comes with a matching pad that provides comfort as well as serving as a low-friction mousing surface. The integrated arm 2.5" deep support bar extends 2.75" from the front edge of the desk when stored and can be extended as far as 9.75", depending on they type of arm support desired. The bar can be set for positioning level, above, or below the mounting surface.
Note: This is a new unit but one of the four pressure plates for mounting is missing. This does not affect the usage as even a thin piece of rigid plastic will serve as a replacement.
