Apple is always thinking about future projects to enhance user experiences.

One of its potential upcoming projects is redesigning the future MacBook Pro to be more ergonomically friendly than before.

What is 'Ergonomically Friendly'?

Having an ergonomically friendly keyboard, mouse, chair and anything else in the office protect users from physical injuries from long-term use.

A more comfortable workspace, for school or work, is essential as it will reduce injuries caused by awkward positions and lead to less physical stress completing repetitive tasks and activities.

A few common injuries caused by poor ergonomic workspace are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS): Pain and weakness in the hand and wrist.
  • Tendinitis: Inflammation or irritation of a tendon.
  • Lower Back Injuries: Pain and stiffness from an improper method of lifting heavy objects or poor sitting posture.
  • Epicondylitis or "Tennis Elbow": Soreness on the outer part of the elbow.

If you find yourself sitting in front of a computer for extended periods of time, investing in ergonomic office supplies will protect you from avoidable physical pain.

How will Apple make the MacBook Pro Ergonomically Friendly?

According to the patent filed on Tuesday, September 1, Apple may be engineering the future MacBook Pro to have the option to raise the keyboard at the rear using a hinge.

Unlike the Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse, the ergonomically friendly design for new MacBook Pros will adjust to the comfort of the user.

The other option Apple is considering, based on the diagrams in the patent, is to raise the entire keyboard and trackpad sections together.

Regardless of which option Apple will produce in the final version of the MacBook Pro, it will improve the comfort for users who type and use their laptops for long periods of time.

Benefits of an Ergonomically Friendly MacBook Pro

Although it may appear minor, common ergonomic injuries in the workplace have long-term effects on our bodies.

Taking the necessary precautions to avoid suffering from extensive and sometimes excruciating pain will save your money in physical therapy and health bills.

While the future ergonomically friendly MacBook Pro is still in its early development stages, don't forget to check out Apple's refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pros.
