The latest thoughts on RSI are that they are caused by 'blurred' mappings of the fingers on the motor cortex. Perhaps bad typists are particularly prone to RSI for this reason. From this point of view resting the hands will do nothing to improve things; what is needed is appropriate exercises to remap which fingers go where.
