Evoluent Essentials Full Featured Compact Keyboard

Evoluent Essentials Compact Keyboard

Tiny bumps on selected keys facilitate touch typing without looking and reduces frequent corrections or reach for the mouse. Other keyboards have bumps only on the F and J keys.

Kinesis: Freestyle 2 Keyboard

An adjustable, separated keyboard divided into two separate modules connected by either a 9" (the most common) or 20" cable. This separation enables individuals to position the left and right sides of the keyboard shoulder width apart, allowing the shoulders, elbows, arms and wrists to relax in an anatomically neutral position. This greatly improves posture and blood flow in the upper body, prevents undesirable rotation at the shoulders, and eliminates ulnar deviation at the wrist.

Posturite Keyboard

posturite Number slide compact keyboard

The Posturite Number Slide Compact Keyboard helps to reduce the risks associated with overreaching for the mouse without sacrificing the convenience of an integrated numeric keypad. Housed within the body of the keyboard, the numeric keypad remains tucked out of the way until needed, allowing individuals to keep the mouse closer within the Comfort Zone when the numeric keypad is not in use. When extensive numeric entry is required the number pad is easily extended and is just as easily stored away again when no longer needed.
