More workers are injured using a computer keyboard in the US than any other tool for the workplace!

P.S. not only in the US, I guess
actually I feel pain in my forearm right now, damn Crying or Very sad

My original thought when I saw this post was "what does this have to do with electronic music?". Well, in recent times many musicians have been using the laptop as a musical instrument, including using the computer keyboard as for playing music.

I don't know if there is any science to back this up, but I find that the keyboards on laptops are much worse than stand-alone keyboards when it comes to causing cramps and tired hands. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this. If I was going to morph into a laptop artist, I'd certainly carry around an auxiliary computer keyboard with me.
