The pedal is front-hinged with a textured surface, and can work with any model of Kinesis contoured keyboard. If the user desires, 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 Advantage2 Contoured Keyboard's foot input options. It can be configured to perform any user-defined macro or keystroke.

The Kinesis Contoured Advantage2 KB600 Ergonomic Keyboard's unique design is based on more than two years of research and was designed to reduce the known factors that cause repetitive stress injuries. Have you tried all the other keyboards and find that none of them relieve your discomfort? Then maybe the Kinesis Advantage2 Contoured Keyboard KB600 is for you.
The Kinesis Advantage2 is designed to be more comfortable than other keyboards in several different ways. The Kinesis Advantage2's unique shape reduces the force and stressful positioning that contribute to discomfort and slow productivity. Since its introduction in 1992, the Kinesis Contoured keyboard has undergone extensive independent testing and has proven superior in both comfort and productivity.
This standard Advantage2 model can be switched to a DVORAK layout, but it has only a QWERTY legend. If you need both, consider the Advantage2 with dual QWERTY/DVORAK legends, or for more memory and features, check out the Advantage Silver.
Kinesis Advantage2 Features
- Concave key wells reduce hand and finger extension to better accommodate the different lengths of your fingers: extension occurs 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
- Low-force mechanical switches for comfortable typing
- Vertical key layout arranges keys in vertical columns to reflect the natural motions 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
- Integral palm support enhances comfort and reduces extension of the wrists
- Embedded 10 key layout eliminates the need to stretch your arm out to reach your keypad
- Programmable - you can remap any or all of the keys!
- The Advantage2 keyboard is compatible with the Kinesis Numeric keypad for those who prefer a separate numerical keypad
- Smaller footprint allows you to place your mouse closer to your keyboard, making it easier to work in your neutral zone and reduce any shoulder pain
The Advantage2 keyboard ships with the standard Windows layout, but you can easily change the configuration to a Mac or non-Windows PC layout. Click on the links below to see the three different configuration options:

Video Review - Kinesis Advantage2 Contoured Keyboard
See the Kinesis Advantage2 in action!

I bought this keyboard hoping that it would help resolve the chronic tendonitis in my arm/wrist. The low force switches/keys as well as the ergonomic design have been very effective in doing so. I highly recommend this product... I am very thankful to Kinesis for this product. It admittedly looks very different but don't let that distract you from purchasing this well designed/built product.
It's the best!
December 8, 2013
I bought a Kinesis contour keyboard many many years ago. When it gave me trouble I sent it back for a rebuild. When my newer computers did not have a PS/2 port, I used an adapter. The Kinesis kept going. Now I work in two locations, so I bought a second Kinesis keyboard so I don't have to carry one with me. The new one has a better feel than the old one, which I thought was perfect. I use my computer about 15-16 hours a day - for work, personal business, social life and entertainment. My hands and wrists 10 years ago were inflamed and painful. They improved noticeably within two weeks after I started using the Kinesis. Now my hands and wrists are in good shape, thanks to the Kinesis keyboard. Other keyboards make you move your hand a lot, stretch your fingers into awkward positions, and twist your wrists. Even other so-called ergonomic keyboards are simply not ergonomic! The Kinesis is really shaped to fit the hand, and the special keys are placed where you can reach them with the least amount of stress on the fingers and hands. The thumb works harder than the pinky - which is good - because it is a much stronger muscle. All in all, Kinesis designed this to be as ergonomic as a keyboard can be. It took me less than a week to be typing at normal speed, but then, as I said, I was working 15 hours a day. Also, I knew the minute I put my hands on it, that the effort to get used to it would pay off. If there is one thing I wish for, it would be a good (Apple-quality) touchpad in the center of the keyboard. I bought an ergonomic mouse which sits to the right of the keyboard. it's still less arm travel than with any other keyboard to move my hand from the keyboard to the mouse, but if it could be in the center, between my hands, it would be even better. I haven't tried foot pedals and I don't need programable keys - I just like a keyboard that minimizes the stress on my hands for typing.
My second Kinesis
April 22, 2012
This was an upgrade for me from an older model Kinesis that has a PS/2 connector and won't work on the new work laptop. It's a great keyboard. I got the single foot switch also, but have not found as much use for it as I had hoped. Another strange thing, the new kb only works on 1 of the 5 USB ports on the laptop; I'm have not tried very hard to figure out why that happens. The Human Solution was easy to work with and I'd be happy to get another Kinesis from them when USB plugs go obsolete.
Give it some time...it will grow on you

Took me ~3 weeks to become accustomed to the keyboard. Would like to see an integrated touchpad in the middle - as this is wasted space in my opinion. I use it to hold my phone on a rubberized mat, but would prefer a touch pad to reduce hand travel to the trackball. Aside from that, I really like this keyboard. Just give yourself a few weeks to retrain your natural tendency to move the hands left and right while typing.

Almost magic... I have always been a slow touch typist... with this keyboard within 3 days I was typing faster and more accurately than I ever have. My arms, fingers, and wrists never tire or have pain now. My posture sitting in front of the keyboard was immediately better. A lot of folks say it takes a lot of time to adjust to... for me it was almost instantly... the keyboard seemed like an old friend. Only complaint is that the 2 USB port are too close together and angled is such a way as to make the use of both at the same time not practical. Neal Kellner CM TRAVEL 4FUN
