***EDIT (5/22): (Reduced ES much more significantly by removing surge protector from work room instead). Tested body voltages with my body voltage meter touching mouse with bare hand then touching mouse with glove on and had slightly higher body voltage with glove on, although my subjective results – with my body – still feel less irritation/inflammation with the gloves on, so perhaps it’s their blocking of slight intermittent frequency emission or similar.
1. Rubber dishwashing/similar gloves help sensitivity while using Computers, and allow the body to relax and think correctly without disturbance. This is a significant method whereby I am working 14-17 hour days at my laptop – I believe that without these gloves, my body would inflame slightly more, and thus it become harder, more fatiguing, more painful, and I would require more rest to work continously.
2. Personally I have found thick latex gloves help when using my laptop on battery power, but when plugged-in, I switch to 2 nitrile gloves (worn over each other), since after testing combinations those seem to reduce electric sensitivity to my plugged-in mouse/external keyboard the most. I don’t understand why exactly, just that both are rubber variations.
3. I also use NO mousepad, since I tested a few and they all amplified electric field exposures to the hand while my laptop is plugged in – my ball mouse works just fine on my wood desk surface. I use my mouse on my extend-out lower part of my wood desk, so that it stays 8+ inches at all times away from my external keyboard, which I keep just in front of my laptop, since my external keyboard (Logitech K120 $10) emits intermediate frequencies (as identified by my old style AM radio) for 1-2 feet away from it in all directions – thus the emissions do not reach my face and are reduced near my hand – since the mouse is on the lower extend-out piece, the upper top part of my desk is also acting as a blocker for the several inches to my hand from the external keyboard (and laptop, which’s mainframe/keyboard emits intermediate frequencies for a foot or so as well).
*Additions that were a reply to a comment on ES-forum.com:
4. My Cornet ED88T shows no e-field emissions, radio frequency emissions, or magnetic fields anywhere on the surface of my mouse ($10 ball roller from LessEMF.com). My old style AM radio shows significant intermediate frequencies generated near the mouse surface, so (ADDITION) that must be the problem. Thus I highly recommend the $10 Ball Roller Mouse from LessEMF.com to any electrically sensitive (and normal) people, although (ADDITION) now I see the irritation was caused by IF and thus explains why dishwashing gloves help to some degree.
5. I have tested taping aluminum foil tightly over the surface of my mouse to reduce intermediate frequencies which, I believe, were the cause of irritation of my hand while using my laptop on battery power. However, I stopped since the foil made something worse, perhaps slightly amplifying the electric fields on the mouse surface and thus current into my hand, and certainly amplified the electricity going into my hand while my computer was plugged in (ED88T showed jump from 200v/m to 300v/m with aluminum foil on surface while laptop plugged in).
ADDITION 6/8/18: Perhaps the RF/EF shielding gloves from LessEMF will help. I may buy them, although after further testing I have realized my Ball and Roller mouse does emit quite a bit of IF, and multiple layers of aluminum make it impossible for me to get a clean grip on the mouse, so I have stuck with the dishwashing gloves.
