Innovera Gel Mouse Pad and Wrist Rest
Although this is certainly a very simple mouse pad, it's still a good option, especially if you're looking for something basic. The wrist rest on it is comfortable and will keep your hand properly positioned while you use the mouse which can help reduce wrist strain and the potential for carpal tunnel syndrome. The backing on this mouse pad is a nonslip rubber that helps keep it in place while you use the mouse.
This mouse pad has a smooth, soft surface which lets your hand and mouse move quickly across, plus it is stain and water resistant. This mouse pad is about 9.5x8.25 inches in size, a bit small on the small side so keep that in mind if you tend to make large movements with your mouse. If you're looking to pick up numerous mouse pads for an office or computer lab, then this is a great option since it's simple, affordable, and ensures comfortable long-term use.
