The Truly Ergonomic keyboard is a critical upgrade from traditional keyboard designs. For well over a century, keyboards have been based on the 'rows of staggered keys' arrangement introduced in typewriters in the 1860s. Improving on that, the Truly Ergonomic keyboard is symmetric and features a unique linear, non‑staggered, split‑symmetric columnar key arrangement that aligns effortlessly with the user's correct posture. This design takes the human body's symmetric shape and neutral position into consideration.
The Truly Ergonomic keyboard is designed for comfort and productivity: It has been developed specifically to help reduce pain and help avoid injuries caused by typing, and its revolutionary key layout improves typing efficiency. The Truly Ergonomic keyboard promotes a healthy posture and so helps reduce wrist, shoulder, neck, and lower back pain and strains. It also helps diminish the risk of work‑related conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis, and other Repetitive Strain Injuries, and its compact design reduces strain caused by stretching for the mouse.
The Truly Ergonomic keyboard is manufactured using high-quality high-reliability mechanical key switches. Each of these feature an independent response mechanism (a feature not present on conventional keyboards), provides a gentle feedback, and preserve their tactile feel over their full lifetime of more than 60 million keystrokes (more than 10 times longer than conventional keyboards). The key switches are mounted to a sturdy metal plate, instead of directly to the PCB, reducing stress to the PCB and prolonging the life of the keyboard.
The Truly Ergonomic keyboard has a compact design with a small footprint, incorporating 100% of the standard keyboard keys in 60% of the usual space, while featuring full‑sized keycaps in a comfortable key arrangement. This small size helps as well to allow the mouse to be placed close to the body's neutral position, minimizing wrist and shoulder pain from stretching for the mouse.
All Truly Ergonomic keyboards integrate a high‑quality cushioned and detachable palmrest. Firmly attached with screws for a strong build, provides support when needed and removing it allows for an even smaller footprint.
Moreover, all Truly Ergonomic keyboards' keycaps have a different profile‑shape per row, and have a concave cylindrical shaped top. Having this profile‑shape and concavity gives you an advantage, because not only does it feel better, but it also helps you feel where to position your fingers properly, without accidentally slipping over to an adjacent key.
Truly Ergonomic keyboards incorporate Full N‑key rollover (NKRO), also known as anti‑ghosting, where each key is correctly detected despite other keys being pressed at the same time (up to 6-KRO plus modifiers by USB specifications).
Additionally, the Truly Ergonomic keyboard also features a columnar non-staggered embedded numeric keypad, media control keys, all keys are fully programmable allowing for a personalized custom layout, and works with Windows, OSX, and Linux operating systems.
The Truly Ergonomic keyboard is a Revolution in Typing and it has the perfect combination of Ergonomics and Mechanical Switches.
