According to #ASUS, it's ergonomically efficient to tilt your wrists *upward*!
I may not be an expert in ergonomics, but I strongly disagree with Asus. Upward-tilting keyboards are so the typist can see button labels, but they *DO* put strain on your wrists. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

@MutoShack Everything I've ever seen says flat is ergonomically correct. Plus, it just feels right!
@MutoShack Anything that tries to move my wrists from the neutral, relaxed position is a non-starter.
@MutoShack it would largely depend on the height of the surface your keyboard is on relative to your arms/elbows.
Whatever results in a neutral wrist position is probably best.
@MutoShack Upward tilting is everything but ergonomic. In that position "circulation is reduced, which can lead to pain, fatigue, and even numbness" (from https://gaming.kinesis-ergo.com/ergonomics/, and Kinesis know a bit about #ergonomics)
IOW, #ASUS is promoting a misfeature as an ergonomic trait, and are full of bullshit.
@MutoShack all of my coworkers do this and I have no idea why
