Product Description

The iGrip Ergonomic Keyboard by AlphaGrip looks and feels like a game controller, but has all the functionality of a full-size keyboard and mouse. The secret to its hi-speed capabilities is the group of 8 rocker buttons on the back of the device, which enable 16 single-finger-single-press keystrokes on full-size keys. AlphaGrip combines the 10-finger control benefits of a keyboard with the freedom and versatility of a game controller. For general computing activities, including net surfing, instant messaging, blogging, note taking, book writing, graphic design, and computer programming, to name a few, there is nothing more liberating than using an AlphaGrip. With your hands and arms resting in your lap while you lean back in a relaxed position, computing is as comfortable as watching TV. Don't even think about taking your hands off your AlphaGrip to reach out for a mouse (as you must with a keyboard). Pointer control is a breeze with the AlphaGrip's integrated, thumb-controlled, trackball. Looks like a game controller, acts like a keyboard. Get a Grip. AlphaGrip.

I spend almost all of my awake time on a computer. It's my primary duty at my current job, as well as what I enjoy doing at home. I have a side business that involves a lot of time on the computer. (I design/hand code websites; Photography and Video creation too.)

Spending all this time on the computer has really started to cause pain with my wrists and especially in my right hand (little & ring fingers). I needed something that could change up my posture so that I can work for longer without pain.

I had tried everything I could find...different keyboards, different mice (trackballs too), nothing was working. After 30mins or so, my right hand would start to go numb and my wrists would hurt.

I bought the iGrip on a whim, not expecting much, as a last resort. I have had it for two days now, and here are my first thoughts...

Incredible build quality
It's built like a tank. Proud to call it mine and sure it will hold up for a long time (track ball feels a bit cheap, but it works so well...not sure how long it will last).

Easy to install
There are no drivers needed for windows 98 and up. Plug and play!

Typing Comfort I've never felt before
There is nothing like sitting back in a recliner and having this type of control. Virtually EVERY keystroke you could do with a regular computer is doable with this set up. (I'm still learning how to touch type, so I'm not sure how easy hand coding websites will be <--I'll update you when I'm at that point)

I have used it while editing video in Sony Vegas Pro...WOW! I mean, it was so much faster. Having everything (mouse, keyboard) in one place.

This innovative keyboard has all you need for comfortable typing on a sofa or anywhere else where balancing a keyboard on your lap isn't the best option. Moreover it's as fast as a full keyboard once you get used to it. But probably one of the best aspect of this product is customer support and the active community which is devoted to it.
Maybe it's not for people void of patience because it requires a bit of commitment at the beginning in order to learn using it, but the reward of resting comfortable on the chair/sofa/bed while having keyboard and mouse on your hands like a joypad, easily outbalances those first couple of weeks.
If you have huge hands like me you'll find out that patching some foam on the sides will make it even more comfortable.

Ergonomic USB Computer Keyboard & Trackball Alternative
I've had my first alphagrip for well over a year and have a second one for home now. I love it and use it literally everyday. Most of the day at work I'm stuck behind a computer and this keyboard has improved my productivity tremendously. Typing speed is faster and mouse to keyboard transitions don't exist anymore.
My favorite part is the extra desk space I have now, and the ability to sit back and relax while working and typing. Also, if you have an xbox360, then it will work as a USB keyboard for it as well.
It took me about a week of use to get the buttons memorized and another week to improve my speed with it. This is a great product and a reasonable price for a combination keyboard and mouse.

I've had my Alphagrip (previous model of the iGrip) for several years now. It is a fascinating device with great potential. Initially the learning curve was steep, but looking back it was far easier than learning a standard keyboard. If you are just getting started with one of these, I would strongly suggest checking out the Alphagrip website for links to free typing tutor programs and other helpful hints from other users on the forums there.

The price is nothing to sneeze at (around a hundred), but for a very useful keyboard and mouse combination I felt it was reasonable. There are a handful of things you should expect to encounter after purchasing:

1. (+)Durable. Plastic housing is very sturdy, and mine has survived several falls onto concrete from 2 to 3 feet.
2. (-)Possible component problems / manufacturing flaws. My first device had a problem with registering the wrong key press.
3. (+)Very helpful and pleasant customer support. Aforementioned first device was replace promptly with no hassle.
4. (+)Trackball is easy to clean, just pop off the outer ring and remove ball and ring.
5. (-)USB cable wears out at flex point in back of the Alphagrip. New version has a stronger cable.
6. (-)"Shift" and "Ctrl" keys do not register as a keystrokes, so Shift + Click is not possible, along with any other related combos.
7. (+)Works with any computer, Plug 'n Play. Use it at work even if your IT policy is restrictive, with no programs to install!
8. (+)Ergonomics. While not scientifically studied, I'm confident there are some real ergonomic benefits with the Alphagrip.

None of the negative points above prevented me from enjoying the product, and I am really looking forward to owning the iGrip version!
