A keyboard tray system is one of the most frequently overlooked components
of an ergonomic workstation. For people who spend more than
two hours per day working on a computer, an articulating
keyboard arm can help orient your keyboard in the most
comfortable possible position, guarding against
a variety of musculoskeletal disorders,
including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,
neck and shoulder pain, and upper
and lower back pain.

The ideal place for your keyboard to rest is in your lap, minimizing your reach, and the ideal angle for your keyboard is a downward sloping "negative" angle. A keyboard tray will allow you to easily achieve these two ergonomic principles, reducing muscle stress and increasing productivity. Keyboard trays are easy to install on most desk types and are available in a number of different styles.
