This is a review of the IMAK Wrist Cushion with massaging ergoBeads (also available on Amazon.com in packs of two).

A while back, after visiting the doctor and finding that the pain I was experiencing every once in a while in my hands was probably caused by my cutting off the circulation to the underside of my arm, I started looking at options to keep myself from cutting off circulation, as I noticed I was doing.

I’m not a gel fan, and the foam pads were too stiff, and didn’t seem to do much good, so despite my lack of faith in beads (I had a beanbag as a kid, which involved a lot of getting up and fixing it so I was actually sitting on beans once in a while), I decided to purchase one of these.

Wow. Despite my lack of faith this product lived up to its marketing. Due to the number of beads within I’m always resting on top of them when I set my hands/arms down. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say they’re very good at massaging, they’re actually pretty comfortable.

Then we have the secondary benefit of it being a fairly good stress ball, by either picking it up in one or both hands, or digging your fingers into it. For the most part, however, I end up forgetting about it completely, which is a very good thing. (Contrary to what I’ve seen said elsewhere, I’ve had no problems with this moving off of my desk or out of place. I only wish it was a little longer, but I suppose that’s what the mouse cushions are for …)

After a few weeks of using it at the office I ended up picking another for at home, and am extremely happy with my purchases.

Highly recommended.
