Whatever they may be called they help a lot.  About 8 years ago I had a lump 
on the back of my left hand about 1/2 inch high, my right hand was painful as 
well.  It was so bad that I was reduced to typing in a hunt-and-peck style 
using only my right index finger (using totally vertical keypress).  I forced 
myself to type in that style for a few weeks, got a wrist rest and haven't 
had major problems since ... of course the pain comes back a bit whenever I 
go into prolonged periods of typing.
