This desk is literally your standard desk at Walmart/KMart/Target.
Only costs $30
It's cheap, and with the CD Rack part, it can hold up to a 22" Wide Screen monitor.
It's not fancy. All of it is made out of plywood.

But if a desk has a smaller keyboard try than this, then that's just weird.

Huh? I am pain-free. But if I put my keyboard on my desk (which brings it to the height where the vertical center of my biceps are), then it's too high and I usually end up in pain after a while.

And that's assuming that people want at least some kind of disk space for their mouse.
My keyboard tray is 42" wide, and 14" deep. So, I could fit two full-sized keyboards and still keep my mousepad on here which is 8" wide. Plus, it keeps my keyboard at elbow height (as long as I keep my chair at the right height), and it has just the perfect angle so that don't need to use the keyboard's legs.

My keyboard tray is 100% anti-CTS. Psh.

I think gonX's point was mainly that having the mouse on the desk above the keyboard is bad, which I agree with. Maybe they don't make desks with decent trays up there in Europe.

Well, we have IKEA, but that's about it. I even have this huge office table that had a tray on it. It was perhaps 20 inches wide which definitely isn't enough

With a Tenkeyless that's pretty feasible actually, at least with a trackball. And many trays have little attachments for a mouse platform.

Anyhow, I and I'll see how it is. It'll clamp to the desk above my tray and be about an inch and a half over the numpad, which http://ergo.human.cornell.edu/cumousetips.html says is perfect:

Position adjustable mouse platforms are commercially available (e.g. Humanscale, Proformix, Flexrest, 3M etc.)
Oh, and apparently wrist rests are apparently bad for you:

Studies by Dr. David Rempel at the University of Berkeley, California, show that pressure applied to the underside of the carpal tunnel is transferred into the tunnel itself via the transverse carpal ligament and that intracarpal pressure doubles with a wrist rest compared with floating the hands over a keyboard. If you choose to use a wrist rest, using one with a broad, flat, firm surface design works best, and rest the heel of your palm on this NOT your wrist. Try not to rest while you're actually typing, but rest in between bursts of typing movements. Avoid soft and squishy wrist rests because these will contour to your wrist, restrict the freedom of movement of your hands, and encourage more lateral deviation during typing. Look at the surface of a typical wrist rest that's been used and you'll see that it gets eroded away, which means that the user has been sliding their wrists over the surface which also compresses the blood vessels often visible at the wrist. Remember, your hands should be able to glide above the surface of a wrist rest during typing, don't lock them in place on the rest while you type.
