Do you think you might have a touch of carpal tunnel syndrome? Symptoms usually start gradually. Often there is frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and fingers. This is frequently encountered in the thumb, index and middle fingers. Some sufferers say their fingers feel useless and swollen, even though little or no swelling is apparent.
Symptoms often first appear in one or both hands during the night, since many people sleep with flexed wrists. A person with carpal tunnel syndrome may wake up feeling the need to "shake out" the hand or wrist. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day. See NIH study for more information. Also see Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in this web site, for more detailed information. Treatment includes rest, exercises, wrists splints, anti-inflammatory medications and adjustments to the work station.
A few ideas for preventing problems.
At the workplace, workers can do on-the-job conditioning, perform stretching exercises, take frequent rest breaks, wear splints to keep wrists straight, and use correct posture and wrist position. Wearing fingerless gloves can help keep hands warm and flexible.
Workstations, and tasks can be redesigned to enable the worker's wrist to maintain a natural position during work.
It is also suggested that jobs can be rotated among workers. The exercises in nimblefinger.com are general stress reduction exercises that are fun.
Typing Games - Typing Tips.Two things are needed to develop keyboarding skills. You should have a desire to learn and a patient instructor. You cannot learn to type by reading and then “banging away at the keys.” Assistance is needed for guidance while you learn. The Little Professor will recommend corrective lessons when necessary. He will also analyze your progress.
A private tutor is needed. A private tutor is needed, but they are often expensive. The Little Professor is your assistant in the Nimble Fingers series of keyboarding programs. He will guide you in learning and point out when an exercise needs to be re-keyed.
Numerous exercises are needed. Remember, practice is necessary to develop skills. The problem is that boredom can set in if you are constantly re-keying the same exercises. To prevent this from happening, there are hundreds of exercises built into the Nimblefingers programs, plus there are many more downloadable exercises.
Have it your way. Downloadable exercises are useful in customizing the program to your particular application such as medical and legal terminology. There are numerous standardized terms from a variety of activities. For example, are you interested in: Art? Cooking? Military? Fish? Birds? Airplanes? Sports? Gardens?

Errors will happen. When an error is made, retype the key immediately! Don’t think about it, your brain knows it didn’t communicate correctly with your finger. Just retype the key and move on!

How about an airodium exercise?
The Airodium is a bizarre, vertical wind tunnel that heaves people into
the air. A powerful gust of wind from vertical mounted turbines propel
the person who wishes to skydive but doesn't want to jump out of a
perfectly good aircraft. Enjoy a unique skydive ride beginning on the
ground and being blown up sixty feet into the air. Ground skydivers wear
a hockey helmet and purple suits made from parachute material.
Or an exercise on sailing?
No one knows for sure the maximum wind velocity experienced in what was
labeled as an unusual tropical storm. We questioned a boat captain about
what occurred on the Florida Intra-coastal Waterway. He said that the
ship Ajax was wrecked and the sailboat Zipper capsized. The rain was
"falling in sheets" and the "wind howled" in intensity, thus raising
havoc on boats. The ten-foot waves were totally unexpected and forced
the cancellation of Sunday's sailboat regatta.
Or a fruit exercise?
A fruit is a fully-developed and ripened seed-producing
part of a plant. Succulent fruits are fleshy and quite
brightly colored. These juicy fruits are keenly attractive
to animals. They eat them and expel the seeds away from
the parent plant. Common fruits include berries, zesty
lemons, figs, cherries, and apples.
Or a typing exercise on Saturn?
Saturn contains densely-compressed hydrogen and
helium. Its butterscotch-colored atmosphere is wild and
extremely violent. Jet streams zoom around its equator at
over 1,100 miles per hour. Saturn is famous for spectacular
rings that surround the planet. These rings are made
up of rocks and ice in orbit over the equator.
