13. The wrist rest as claimed in claim 1, further comprising a sensor configured to detect whether a body is within a pre-determined vicinity region of the wrist rest so as to switch the vibration assembly from a sleep mode to an operational mode upon detection of the body so as to be ready for generating the vibrating motion.

14. A wrist rest, comprising:

a base structure;

at least two flexible supports extending from the base structure;

a vibration assembly comprising a vibration member and an actuator, wherein the vibration member is supported on the at least two flexible supports in a manner such that the vibration member is spaced apart from the base structure by the at least two flexible supports, and wherein the actuator is coupled underneath the vibration member and between the at least two flexible supports so as to be suspended from the vibration member;

a cushion assembly comprising a cushion disposed over the vibration assembly in a manner so as to conceal the vibration assembly between the base structure and the cushion, wherein the cushion is secured to the base structure; and

a lubricating layer between the vibration member of the vibration assembly and the cushion of the cushion assembly,

wherein the at least two flexible supports are configured to isolate the base structure from the vibrating motion of the vibration assembly,

wherein the vibrating motion of the vibration member of the vibration assembly causes a surface of the vibration member of the vibration assembly directed towards the cushion assembly to move relative to a corresponding surface of the cushion of the cushion assembly directed towards the vibration assembly, and

wherein the lubricating layer is configured to minimise vibration losses of the vibration member of the vibration assembly and facilitate the relative movement between the vibration member of the vibration assembly and the cushion of the cushion assembly.

15. The wrist rest as claimed in claim 14, wherein the vibration member comprises a vibration plate.

16. The wrist rest as claimed in claim 14, wherein the at least two flexible supports are made of rubber.
