Authors comments
To avoid shoulder pain it is important for persons with tetraplegia to keep their arms close to the body and to work at a desk that is as low as possible. The user's workplace provides a good position for his shoulders. He uses the mouse with his left hand, which means he does not have to reach across the number keys to use the mouse; his arm stays closer to his body. The keyboard and mouse sit on a pull-out shelf at knee height (as low as possible).
The gel cushion for the mouse helps protect the wrist.

Editors comments
An alternative for controlling the mouse with the left hand is to use a keyboard without a separate number keypad.
