Re: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Right Wrist :(
"Workpace" I think is the software. Have it here at work. It prevents you from continuing to use your computer for an extended period of time, letting your muscles relax again after a while of use. It really helps. The downside is when you have a good train of thought, are typing, and this software says "STOP - time to relax".
I got used to it.
One thing I noticed was that the scroll button on the mouse was the thing that did the most damage. I used my middle finger to roll that button, and apparently the strain that action puts on your muscles from the knuckle to the elbow is worse that other things.
I heard that trackballs are worse, especially if the ball makes you raise your fingers. The touchpad is one of the best I heard.
