"Computer Intelligence, Inc. has launched its Intelligels(R) line of wrist rests for laptop computers. These patent-pending wrist rests were designed to differentiate themselves from the dozens of different wrist rests sold for desktop computers and the few sold for laptops. The goal of this unique design is to provide comfort and relieve the pain and discomfort to the palms and wrists while typing on a hot and hard laptop case. While simple in appearance and design, Intelligels(R) offers two versions of the wrist rest, SoftGEL and Lycra nylon SoftFOAM.
Michael E. Zuckerman, CEO and founder of Computer Intelligence, Inc., has been in the computer industry for over 25 years. As a business analyst, IT developer and road-warrior consultant he has spent many hours working uncomfortably on his laptop and began to experience signs of carpal tunnel syndrome. As a direct result of this and unable to find anything in the market to solve his problem, Mr. Zuckerman designed Intelligels(R) laptop computer wrist rests. With the two styles Computer Intelligence offers a broader selection of product solutions for the consumer, whether student, road-warrior or gamer.
Place the rectangular-shaped Intelligels(R) directly on the case of the laptop where you rest the heels of your hands. In the center is a one-size-fits-all cutout area so you can access your integrated touchpad and mouse click buttons. Both work seamlessly with Intelligels(R).
SoftGEL Intelligels(R) is composed of polyurethane gel for a soft supportive feel while offering a cool feel to your hand. The available colors are lime green, red, orange, blue, pink and black. Therefore, you can add your own personal touch to your computer and keep up with market trends in laptop colors from the leading manufacturers such as Dell(R) and Sony(R).
SoftFOAM Intelligels(R) is a Lycra nylon covered rest injected with soft foam on a rubber non-skid base. This too provides excellent ergonomic comfort and relief with a curved resting position for the heel of you hands and more cushion. Lycra SoftFOAM rests are available in black, grey and navy blue. Both wrist rests do not slip and stay in place while resting on your laptop for more control. Then you can remove and store the Intelligels when not in use.
As noted on the US Department of Labor's OSHA's website concerning the proper positioning of your hand/wrist in the use of computers: "Your hands should move freely and be elevated above the wrist/palm rest while typing. When resting, the pad should contact the heel or palm of your hand, not your wrist." Intelligels(R) laptop wrist rests are designed to provide this exact type of support!"
