PROTEX™ Keyboarding System Fights Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) currently costs U.S. employers in excess of $27 billion annually in absenteeism and worker's compensation claims, and is deemed by many experts as the major occupational hazard of the information age. CTS occurs when the nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel (inside the wrist) are compressed by awkward and forceful hand movements. The symptoms of CTS are numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and fingers.
