Product Description

Built-in two-port USB hub. Dual-injection molding key caps. Metal base plate. Sections can be moved off and on the base plate, for instance if you are left-handed, you can place the number pad to the left of the two main sections. 105 keys, with standard US 101 QWERTY layout. Extendable Space Bars on either side. MPN USB9-2BLK.

The far majority of ergonomic keyboards do not address the fact that typing with your hands facing down is unnatural. It narrows the carpal canal, compressing the median nerve, which causes carpal tunnel pain. It also contributes to Repetitive strain disorder and tendonitis/tendinosis. Consider: Let your arms hang down at your sides and then, without twisting your wrists, bring your forearms up by bending your elbows to 90 degrees. This is the most natural position in which your wrists can be. For most people in this position, one's palms are almost facing each other - they are not facing down.

Each section of the keyboard is easy to reposition and surprisingly mobile. You can tilt each forward, back, left, and right, and twist clockwise or counter-clockwise. You can start with the keys laying flat as with a normal keyboard and gradually tilt them away from each other as you become more comfortable typing in the new location. There are no dinky drivers to worry about: key remapping is done by hitting a certain key sequence explained in the manual. The keyboard then sends out the modified character code to whichever computer it's connected to until you change the key again or reset the keyboard to default. The Space Bars are easily extendable for those with large hands.

I am really glad to see this company selling their products here. I have seen some negative reviews in recent years but they appear to have gotten their house in order. I am happy - for you. I have two of these keyboards. One I bought in the 1980's - and it still works. Another I bought in the 90's - and it still works. This is a great product. I have had a rewarding and fun career as a software engineer and it's quite possible I would have had to leave the field were it not for Comfort Keyboard. Love the product! As in, I REALLY love the product.

When my wrists start to bother me, it is completely flexible. I love that. You can tilt each side separately at any angle. The different keyboard sections can also slide to vary their distance from one another.

Aside from using voice-activated software, using this keyboard has made an incredible difference in the amount of typing I can do. I started having serious pain and crippling about 7 years ago, resulting from RA/lupus. Some days I just can't type much at all regardless of the keyboard. But on other days, I could type possibly for 5 minutes without pain directly into my laptop, or possibly for an hour on this amazing "transformer" type keyboard. It really has made a huge difference in my life. It is expensive, but it works like no other ergo keyboard I have used, by addressing the simple, and probably obvious, issue of needing to focus on a the most neutral hand positions to mitigate strain and inflammation. I've been using this keyboard since 2006, and I couldn't see going back.

I love my Comfort Keyboard. The product description is totally accurate, and I no longer experience the debilitating CTS pain that I used to have with normal ergonomic keyboards. Basically it's the best thing since sliced bread!

I've been a Comfort Keyboard user for 4 years. For those who make a living using a keyboard (programmers, authors, etc.) there is simply not a better choice. Switching from a regular keyboard eliminated ~90% of wrist strain associated with frequent keyboard use. I can't recommend this keyboard highly enough. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

A friend of mine turned me onto this keyboard it has does wonders for the wrist pain and posture issues I was having. Typing speed is about the same for me as with a conventional keyboard, all that is really different is the angle and pressure on my wrists.
