Wrist Rests are essential as without their support users can get carpal tunnel syndrome. But it is essentially supposed to be used as a “rest” between typing; somewhere you are meant to place your palm and heel of the hand, not the wrist. The use of a wrist rest whilst typing is not recommended and can cause damage to the wrist. These items should not really be called a wrist rest but a palm rest. You can rest your palm on a wrist rest whilst typing at the front of the keyboard but only when your fingers are above keyboard height and your fingers or hand are not being stretched whilst using this.
