2 Abstract Two gel filled cushions that are placed on your laptop and used as protectors to support your wrists. The cushions hang over the edge of your laptop to maximize comfort and the health of your arms. Natalie Kitchel

3 Claim The cushions are two individual pads that are placed on both sides of the touch pad and positioned to your liking. Each pad has a soft flexible non-skid rubber backing to prevent slipping. The flexibility of the rubber allows the wrist relievers to conform to the shape of your laptop. They are long enough to hangover the edge of the laptop to protect your forearm from the hard edge of the computer. This helps alleviate the strain on your wrist and forearm that usually results from laptop use. The gel cushion minimizes health risks such as carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle tension, cramping, hand fatigue, and helps maintain normal blood circulation. Natalie Kitchel

4 Materials Polyurethane gel inside (4 oz./pad) Internal Latex casing (19.25 sq. in./pad) Outer covering of Lycra (19.25 sq. in/pad) Non-skid rubber backing (15 sq. in./pad) Jennifer Orrison
