Welcome to CSR Nation
Does anyone have this device? It looks like it could really help pain and fatigue, but I'm wondering if it would slow down finger speed? It's a bit pricey, too.
My girlfriend uses it and she says if she did not use this device, she would not be doing this job.
I use something similar and have for about 10 years now. I know I would not be doing this job without it. I just put a lumbar pillow on my lap and rest my wrists on it. Makes a huge difference in the pain and fatigue. I cannot even begin to tell you.
I've tried a few different things in my lap and it seems to slow down my speed.
How thick/high is the lumbar pillow you use? Where did you buy it? Is it firm like a tempurpedic or soft?
Last year I had several episodes where I got a huge marble-sized bump on my right wrist. I realized it was from using a mouse. I now use a paperback Webster's Dictionary and lay my wrist over it to use a mouse. It's an incredible difference.
I keep my steno machine at lap level. The only thing(s) moving is/are my pinkies. My wrists don't get any strain.
So do you guys think the ReportIt is better than any pillow or other type of similar report device?
Tried a pillow today. It did help my problem right hand/arm, but made my left one bother me a bit more, which the left never bothers me.
Have you guys with the ReportIt tried anything else besides the ReportIt?
