The THS 2013 Ergo Gift Guide – Ergonomic Gift Ideas for PC Users
Are you looking for a holiday treat for the PC user in your life? At The Human Solution, we have a number of great products to help your friends and loved ones use their PCs in healthier and more ergonomic ways. From stocking stuffers to larger gifts, we have a wide range of items that will allow any PC user to get the most out of their computer. But we also understand that there's a lot to sift through, so here's a guide to some of our favorite ergonomic gift ideas for PC users.
- Goldtouch V2 Keyboard and MouseTrapper Advance Bundle
A great place to start for any PC user who needs an ergonomic boost is with their keyboard and mouse. A split keyboard reduces strain and cramping while keeping your fingers in a more natural position, while any ergonomist will tell you that a traditional mouse causes users to twist their arms and employ a tight grip that can inflame existing pain or cause new ones. Fortunately, you can solve both these problems at once by giving someone the Goldtouch V2 Keyboard and MouseTrapper Advance Bundle. The first component of the bundle is the Goldtouch V2 keyboard, one of our most popular and best-selling ergonomic keyboards. The Goldtouch V2 can both split and tent at an angle, letting you position your keyboard in the most comfortable way for your fingers and hands. With Soft Touch keys for low impact typing and an easy plug and play USB port, this ergonomic keyboard is an affordable way to improve your workstation.
But since the V2 is also designed to feature a small footprint, allowing it to pair easily with an ergonomic mouse, our bundle also includes the Mousetrapper Advance. The Mousetrapper Advance is an award-winning ergonomic mouse alternative that replaces the traditional mouse with a soft steering pad that moves intuitively and reduces strain on your wrists and joints. Best of all, when you purchase both as a bundle, you save a little money. If you've got a sibling and like to give gifts that match each other, this could be a great option.
Innovative EVO II LCD Monitor Arm
A monitor arm has several benefits, making it a great gift idea for a PC user. Not only does a monitor arm free up valuable desk space by raising the monitor off of the surface of the desk, it also helps to reduce neck strain by allowing you to easily adjust the position of the monitor. We sell a lot of different kinds of monitor arms, but the Innovative EVO II LCD Monitor Arm is a good option that should work for most PC users. The EVO II uses the revolutionary Better Balance mechanism to provide constant force across the arm's entire weight of motion without having to use a bulky gas canister to maintain it. In other words, this monitor arm for PCs provides fingertip adjustment while remaining light, sleek, and durable. It also comes with integrated cable management, helping to get all of those unsightly wires off of your desk and freeing up important real estate on the desk. The EVO II works great for monitors that weigh between 6 and 20 pounds. If you're shopping for someone with a heavier monitor, you might want to look at a heavy-duty monitor arm like the Humanscale M8 monitor arm.
- UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray
If you know someone who is experiencing pain in his or her neck, shoulder, or back, you might want to get him or her a keyboard tray. A keyboard tray is a great way to relieve strain on the wrists and shoulders by keeping your keyboard stowed in an ergonomically sound position. We sell a number of excellent keyboard trays on our site, but in terms of bang for your buck, you can't beat the UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray. Not only is it one of the most affordable keyboard trays we sell, but at 27" wide, it has plenty of room for whatever style keyboard you use with enough left over for a mouse as well. Not only that, but the UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray now ships with two different tracks, and 11" and a 21", so you can buy it as a gift even if you don't know how much clearance the recipient has under her desk. With 8" of easy height adjustment and 360 degree rotation, the UPLIFT Keyboard Tray is the perfect addition to any workstation and a great holiday gift.
Of course, this list just scratches the surface of the great ergonomic gifts available on our site.
