Users comments
The user first tried to use a standard keyboard, but he developed elbow pain. He also tried using Dragon Dictate, but it was not right for him, either. Then he adapted his workstation with a supportive surface for his right arm and a mini keyboard. The elbow pain disappeared. The user received the first keyboard from Hjälpmedelcentralen (assistive device center). When it broke he bought another one and paid for it himself.
