In brief: Ergonomic wrist pad

If you already have the keyboard you should consider an "ergonomic wrist pad".
A soft pad sitting in front of the keyboard which raises your hands. This reduces the amount of extension that you hold your hands in while typing and should reduce the stretch on the median nerve which is the common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome.
