Do I need a keyboard/mouse tray?

Keyboard and Mouse Trays Ensure a Neutral Typing Position

If your office furniture doesn't allow you to keep your hands and wrists in a neutral position while typing, consider installing keyboard and mouse trays to improve the ergonomics in your office. Some trays fit both the keyboard and mouse together on the same piece, while others consist of two side-by-side pieces. Some keyboard trays have a built-in wrist-rest as well. Another ergonomic tip: Keep your keyboard flat or tilted slightly away from you to promote a neutral position for your hands and wrists.
