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
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

Product Reviews for Kinesis Advantage Contoured USB Keyboard with Dual QWERTY/DVORAK Legend for PC and MAC
Completely satisfied with the desk. More impressive was the buying process, knowledge of the sales and support staff, and attention to detail. It's clear that this company is on a mission to help people. They have found a way to differentiate themselves in a crowded market and stand out as a great company which deserves all the success it achieves. We will be adding a second UpLift 900 in the near future. Thank you!
