When it comes to equipment, finding the right item can be a real hassle. Just because an item has the word “ergonomic” painted on it doesn’t mean the designers gave any thought to ergonomics. Even if they did, it doesn’t mean the product is right for you. Sometimes, the best solution is common, ordinary, and doesn’t bear the words “ergonomically designed” anywhere in the product literature.
