Idea at Work Dual Mouse-Forward Keyboard Tray is a pre-configured keyboard tray system that features the Idea at Work universal platform combined with dual mousing platforms. This allows for easy switching of hands or the use of more than one tool like a mouse, keypad, or small graphics tablet. The dual swivel-out mouse platforms are at the front end of the keyboard tray; this configuration is also a great solution for a multi-user workstation as it accommodates both right- and left-handed users.
Workrite has discontinued this item.
The WorkRite Advantage-Dual Keyboard Tray is a great replacement.

The keyboard platform is not ideal--each of the 2 mouse platforms are about an inch below the keyboard tray which is a big difference when moving user's hands--as close to the same height would be preferable. The ability to rotate the platforms is nice, but the platforms and the keyboard tray itself need more space (I use a mouse, a Contour Shuttle Pro, a handheld Philips microphone, and need as much as space as possible to put things down and use them without stretching my arms way out). The rubber edge does prevent the mouse from flying on the side arms. Watch the keyboard arm--I got the 85 which extends above the table, but only at an angle--the higher it goes, the further from the table it gets which is an awkward and poor design. Ideally, the keyboard arm should extend north and south in a straight direction so you are always at the same distance from the monitors and work surface, rather than getting further from the monitors the taller you are. I will try to see if I can swap it out.
