ErgoRest Adjustable Forearm Support with Extension Post
The ErgoRest forearm support and rest is a simple but terrific ergonomic product from Finish company ErgoRest.
Developed in the mid 1980's, the wrist or forearm support is great for people with RSI (repetitive strain injury) or CTS (carpal tunnel syndrome) as it allows your arms to float in free moving motion, with an almost weightless sensation.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome ?
It is a painful disorder of the hand which is caused by pressure on the main nerve that runs through the wrist. Symptoms include numbness, pins and needles, and pain. Anything that causes swelling inside the wrist can cause carpal tunnel syndrome, including repetitive hand movements, pregnancy and arthritis.
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway in the wrist that opens into the hand. It is surrounded by the bones of the wrist (underneath) and the transverse carpal ligament (across the top). The median nerve runs through the carpal tunnel and gives sensation to the thumb, forefinger, middle finger and half of the ring finger. Flexor tendons also run through the carpal tunnel into the hand. These tendons are covered by a smooth membrane called tenosynovium and allow hand movement. Any thickening from inflamed tendons or other causes of swelling can reduce the amount of space inside the carpal tunnel. If untreated, the median nerve is squashed against the transverse carpal ligament until the nerve cannot function properly, which causes the numbness and pain.

The company was established by Seppo Hölttä in 1978 at Siilinjärvi, in the Northeastern part of Finland, close to the university city of Kuopio. In 1992 it become known as Ergorest Oy (limited company).
In the late 1980s, the company developed a product idea connected to work station ergonomics, which led to the creation of the ErgoRest forearm support we see today.
