Kinesis Advantage Contoured USB Keyboard with Dual QWERTY/DVORAK Legend for PC and MAC

item#: KIN501

Kinesis Advantage Contoured USB Keyboard with dual QWERTY/DVORAK legend for PC and MAC offers all the great features of the standard Advantage keyboard plus a DVORAK legend printed on the key caps in addition to the regular QWERTY layout. While both keyboards can be used in either QWERTY or DVORAK mode, this one is easier for users who are not familiar enough with DVORAK to type by memory. The Advantage keyboard is also available in two other versions: the Kinesis Advantage Contoured USB Keyboard for PC and MAC and the Kinesis Advantage Pro Contoured USB Keyboard.

Foot Switch

  • Single Action Foot Switch [FS007RJ11] - For most users, this pedal provides more comfort than the triple action model. The pedal is front-hinged with a textured surface and a self-adhesive hook-and-loop tab is included to anchor the foot pedal to the floor.
  • Triple Action Foot Switch [FS006TAF] - The triple action pedal is the best and most efficient way of taking advantage of your Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard's foot input options. It can be configured to perform any user-defined macro or keystroke.

This Humanscale Ergonomic Mouse Pad provides both a smooth, soft mousing surface and puts a great ergonomic workstation reference right at your fingertips.

The Kinesis Contoured Advantage Ergonomic Keyboard's unique design is based on extensive research and was designed to lessen the known factors that cause repetitive stress injuries. Have you tried other keyboards and find that none relieve your discomfort? Perhaps the Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard is for you. It is designed to be more comfortable than standard keyboards. The Advantage keyboard's unique shape reduces the force and stressful positioning that contribute to discomfort and slow productivity. Since its debut in 1992, the Kinesis contoured keyboard has undergone extensive independent testing and has proven superior in both comfort and efficiency.

This model of the Advantage ergonomic keyboard can be switched to a DVORAK layout and has legends for DVORAK and QWERTY printed on the key caps.

Kinesis Advantage Features

  • Concave key wells minimize hand and finger extension to better accommodate the lengths of your fingers: extension happens when the joints in your fingers curl up and extend forward from your hands, rather than relaxing down slightly in the direction of the palms
  • Vertical key layout places keys in vertical columns to reflect the natural motion of your fingers, and the keypads are sculpted and concave to fit the varying lengths of your fingers
  • Design provides looser placement of function keys to the alphanumeric keys, so your fingers don't have to stretch as far to use them
  • Integrated palm support enhances comfort and reduces extension of the wrists
  • Embedded 10 key eliminates the need to stretch your arm out to reach your keypad
  • The Advantage keyboard is compatible with the Kinesis Numeric keypad for those who prefer a separate numeric keypad
  • Smaller footprint lets you to place your mouse closer to your keyboard, making it easier to work in your neutral zone and reduce any shoulder pain

Technical Specifications

  • Special drivers not required
  • Separate thumb keypads for frequently used keys such as enter, backspace, delete and combination keys control, alt and command (PC) or option (Mac) to reduce stress on the little finger
  • Separate key wells for each hand minimize strain and reaching by placing your arms at approximately shoulder width, keeping your wrists straight to reduce abduction and ulnar deviation which can cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and tendonitis
  • Twenty degree, lateral-tilt design arranges your hands so that your thumbs are approximately 20 degrees higher than your pinky fingers to minimize pronation and/or static muscle tension
  • Low force tactile key switches (45 gram pressure) provide both tactile and audible feedback with their long travel (4 mm) with activation at approximately 2 mm to reduce the jarring impact of "hitting bottom"
  • Select 24, 36, or 48 macros (56, 38, or 28 characters long, respectively)
  • Optional Kinesis or other foot pedals can be used with this keyboard
  • Dimensions: 2.9" H x 16.5" W x 8" D; 6' USB cord length
  • Warranty: Limited 2 year

Great keyboard!
August 20, 2012
As a rheumatoid arthritis sufferer, I bought this keyboard in desperation after several common ergonomic keyboards caused pain in my hands after about 2 hours. The Human Solution: The item was in stock, was shipped quickly, and arrived in great condition. The keyboard: It took a while to get used to the layout but it was well worth the time. I use this keyboard (along with the Evoluent vertical mouse) for 7 to 8 hours at a time without aggravating my arthritis. Not only has the pain in my hands decreased, but flare-ups have decreased as well. I'm overjoyed. As an added bonus, I can leave a "normal" keyboard attached to my machine for people who are not used to this keyboard. This keyboard is great!

My first one lasted nearly 5 years, and I waited entirely too long to replace it, primarily because of the cost. But after using the Kinesis again for about a month, I'm glad I made the purchase. The real kicker is the placement of the Backspace key, which completely eliminates a wrist bend and reach for every typo.

I had this product shipped to me in NZ because the local importers wanted silly money. Full marks for prompt service and good packaging. Now the review: Everything on the keyboard feels ergonomically correct from the depth of the keys (the depth matches the diferent lengths of your fingers) to their positions - it all falls beautifully to hand in a totaly natural fashion, nothings a stretch. On the downside if your keyboard skills are not so hot then you'll have to be prepared to work at it. Typing exercises are povided and its not taking too long to adjust after working through them. The problem arises because with your fingers on the home keys your view of the majority of the keyboard is obscured, You've got too learn some low level touch typing. If you're like me and like stuff thats well made and just a little bit esoteric and dont mind paying a bit exttra for it then its a great buy. If your a fully fledged typist (i'm not) with repetitve strain injury it got to be worth some serious consideration as the ergonomics are spot on. I'm a CAD operator not a typist and was starting to suffer from tendonitis, the biggest single factor in reducing this to nothing has been purchasing a vertical mouse. The evoluent one i have at home is a no brainer compared with any standard mouse.( I have a slighlty cheaper one at work.) The keyboard is playing it's part too. I like the keyboard very much but its not cheap, it's not for everyone. I've tried to keep this review dead staight - i wouldn't want anyone rushing to buy this product on my recommendation and then being disapointed! Happy Tryping :-)

Congratulations!

It was a very non-frustrating shopping experience. . . the keyboard WAS IN STOCK....and I received it very promptly. I need to know more about the Amia Chair. Arm rests? I hope not if it's intended for computer use.
