Keep your forearm in the natural position with a split keyboard
Much like our vertical mice, split keyboards are designed to encourage a natural forearm position (also known as the 'handshake position'). Split keyboards reduce forearm twisting making them ideal for sufferers of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). Our split keyboards also provide a more natural posture to reduce stress on the body and increase comfort when typing.
Why use a split keyboard
Standard keyboards can cause strain on the wrist and forearms by creating a twisted position. Split keyboards avoid this by encouraging an upright forearm position and neutral wrist position. Our split keyboards also allow the mouse to be positioned closer to the keyboard, helping to prevent and manage RSI.
Split Keyboard Range
Split keyboards take a bit of getting used to, but stick with them and you will soon feel the benefits. Our Goldtouch range of keyboards allow gradual splitting and tenting of the keyboard to allow time for getting used to the new working position.
The Goldtouch Go!2 models are also ideal for portable workers as they fold in half for ease of carriage. There are also both wired and wireless models available.
Split keyboards offer a great option as an adjustable ergonomic keyboard, but the models which have an upright tenting facility work best for touch typists. We have a range of non-adjustable split keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 and Microsoft Sculpt which still encourage a more natural and neutral posture for non touch-typists.
