This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in December of 2018. You know that fatigue you feel in your hands and arms after a long session at the computer? It could be doing permanent harm in the form of repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome. That's why keyboard wrist rests are so important. They help you maintain good posture and support your extremities, making them less susceptible to injury. Some of our selections include a mouse pad, too. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best wrist pad for keyboards on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 20, 2018:

All keyboard rests support your wrists to help prevent injury, but there are important differences in height, width, and other factors that mean they are not all created equal. Our selections zeroed in on those differences. For example, most keyboard wrist pads are made of gel or memory foam, but we found one made of neoprene that would be a good option for people who don't like the other materials.
