AimBlade
(hx) 05:13 PM EST - Dec,03 2006

The AimBlade is the kind of ergonomic type product that I would normally not purchase, but it somehow got my attention when I checked the IndiWEB website. It gives you a stable position and might prevent RSI. Maybe I'll like it and use it.

The AimBlade was developed particularly as ergonomic support for the strongly stressed ranges. If you have a short desk you are constantly scraping your elbows or wrist over the side. That's when the AimBlade comes into play. Not only does it act against RSI, it also gives you a lot more comfort. Do you wonder what the heck is a repetitive strain injury (RSI)?



We are not designed to remain as sedentary or perform the fine motor movements for the long uninterrupted hours that we have to do in so many of our jobs. Evidence suggests that prolonged abnormal posture and repetitive movements contribute to neck, limbs and back pain. These conditions are collectively known as overuse syndromes or repetitive stress injury (RSI). RSI is no small matter. The damage sustained from RSI is due to structural changes in the muscle fiber as well as due to decreased blood flow. Nerves can also be involved. The immobile tissue and surrounding inflammation compress the nerve which can cause numbness or tingling and eventually weakness if the nerve is damaged severely. The symptoms of RSI include pain, soreness, numbness or tingling in the hands, wrists or forearms, or clumsiness. If you have any of these symptoms, you should take them seriously. See a doctor :-]



AimBlade Specifications:
- better than any chair armrest
- for Low, Mid and HighSense Players suitably
- for right- and left-handed people
- comfortable and stable
- mountable without a tool
- stably by glass fiber reinforcement
- 360 degree swiveling




The package includes the actual AimBlade and the universal holder for your desk. What's great about the AimBlade is the fact that you can remove the main part from the holder, or turn it round 360 degrees. The installation is easy, and no tools are needed (see images). The AimBlade is made from plastic with glass fiber reinforcements to make it durable.

We've tested the AimBlade over two weeks - to be more exact, my wife tested it, because the AimBlade is too small for my huge arm :-D. She played The Sims 2 Pets, Titan Quest for a couple of days with the AimBlade installed. Surprisingly, she liked the AimBlade. Of course, it takes a few hours to get used to, but once you got used to it, you'll probably like it.

Pros:
- comfortable
- durable
- reduces the risk of having RSI

Cons:
- takes a few hours/days to get used to
- too small for huge arm
- the logo on the AimBlade it self vaguely disappears after a while

Special thanks to IndiWEB for providing the AimBlade.

I saw the review and it looks nice. Where can I find to buy it though that ships to the US. I have looked and there are like 3 (possibly more) websites but only ship to Europe. I would like to know if you know of any place that does ship to the US. Since I would like to buy it but the stores have no # just an email which I'll do later but in case that you know a website that does.

Thanks,

I can't read french or whatever that aimblade.nl website is in... I do know that you can't order it from the indiweb website to get it shipped to the US since it's not listed as an option. There's also like I said 2 other english websites that has no option to ship to the US. I would appreciate it if anybody knows of a website that will shipt to the US and is in english. Then please email me at Andrew5124@gmail.com.
