Ergonomic Keyboards

Do you ever sit at your computer and feel like the keys are just too cramped together? Does your wrist bend in a weird shape trying to hit a particular key? Or do your elbows seem to ache resting on the edge of the desk? If you answered yes to any of these questions than you should invest in an ergonomic keyboard.

Ergonomic Keyboards

Good ergonomic keyboards are designed to position your hands, wrists and arms in a natural, relaxed position when typing. Many of our keyboards are split in half and positioned on an angle to provide increased comfort during typing. Others have compact, flat designs to reduce wrist extension and encourage better wrist posture.

How to Choose The Right Keyboard

Ergonomic keyboards are highly popular sellers because of their revolutionary design. For too long we have been typing on laptops and keyboards that have been getting smaller and smaller. You will be pleasantly surprised by the benefits when you try switching to one of these keyboards if you have been typing on a cramped laptop keyboard for a long time.  

Make sure you begin typing the way your body is naturally meant to - it could help alleviate wrist, elbow & shoulder pain and tension.

FAQ

Are you not sure which keyboard to get or do you have more questions? We've put together answers to some of the most common questions we get asked about buying an ergonomic keyboard to make things easier for you.

What is the difference between an ergonomic keyboard and a standard keyboard?

Both ergonomic keyboards and standard keyboards both have the same keys and functionality as each other, the only difference is the design of the devices. A standard keyboard has been designed with very little ergonomic features. The outdated design of a standard keyboard keeps your hands twisted in an unnatural position all day, which can lead to injuries, pain or discomfort. Whereas, ergonomic keyboards are designed to leave your hands sitting in a raised position with your elbows pointed outwards - the natural resting position when using a computer. The Kinesis Advantage 2 Keyboard is a great example of an ergonomic keyboard with a unique design aimed at improving the comfort and wellbeing of workers. If the Kinesis Advantage 2 is too pricey for your budget, the Microsoft Sculpt Desktop Keyboard is a more affordable keyboard that delivers great ergonomic features including a padded wrist support, raised keyboard and a split key design. 

What can an ergonomic keyboard help with?

Lowers stress in the workplace

Research shows that approximately 41% of workers claim that stress at work makes them less productive. And 33% of workers claim to engage less at work when they’re stressed. How exactly does this relate to ergonomic keyboards and workplace stress? One of the biggest reasons for workplace stress can be attributed to lack of comfort when working. In a different study, 12 percent of employees claimed some of their biggest issues with workplace stress was discomfort in their hands. With the proper ergonomic keyboard, you can greatly improve the well being of your workers.

Greatly improves comfort

If you’re currently using a standard keyboard, there is a quick exercise you can do to realise how bad they are for your comfort. First, place your hands on the keyboard as if you are about to begin typing. Now relax your hands, elbows and shoulders and notice where your hands naturally fall - an ergonomic keyboard is designed to mimic this natural resting position when typing. Some keyboards are split into two devices, which allows you to position the keyboard to your exact needs.

Improve workplace culture and attitude

If you’re a boss or manager, providing your staff with an affordable ergonomic device, like an ergonomic keyboard, is a great way to show your staff that you care for their comfort and wellbeing. But don’t just take our word for it. Recent research highlights that employees are 90% more likely to stay at their job if they think their boss shows them empathy.

How to maximise your comfort with an ergonomic keyboard?

With the proper positioning of your keyboard and with consistent hand exercises, you can greatly improve your comfort in the workplace. Your ergonomic keyboard should be positioned between 5 - 10 cm from the edge of your work desk, allowing you plenty of wrist support. Make sure you don’t need to twist and move your elbows too much by keeping your mouse close to the keyboard in a comfortable position. It’s also important to regularly stretch your hands to maximise the benefits of an ergonomic keyboard.
