Home > Health Library > Proper Hand and Wrist Position
The best position for mouse and trackball use is with your wrist neutral. Your wrist should not bend to tilt your hand up or out to the side.
The same idea will help when you do other activities that require you to use your fingers and hands in the same way over and over. As much as you can, keep your wrists neutral.
