[ a nice long review of the TouchStream LP ]

Thanks for the informative first impression.

I've been looking at different keyboards and mice,
since my mouse hand has been getting *a lot* worse
recently, and typing has been bothering me more as

Here's the ones I'm considering besides the TouchStream,
and of course, the classic Kinesis Contour:


I'm probably going to go with the Datahand, and
do something similar to the Safetype with it.

I'm definitely going to get a Quillmouse, but will
probably also get a trackball with the raised support
that Kinesis carries and add bumpers to the trackball
buttons so no reaching is necessary.

My RSI was actually started by numberpad use (NetHack
:-/--I have a love/hate relationship with it), and
is now exhacerbated by the mouse.

I've also seen a device that tracks eye movement for
the cursor placement, but I don't have a link for it.

Anyone out there tried getting workman's comp for
keyboarding/mousing trauma?
