Kinesis Freestyle Ergonomic Computer Keyboards Review

Kinesis freestyle solo

The Kinesis Freestyle Solo’s revolutionary two modular design will relieve wrist strain during long hours of typing. Its ergonomic keyboard was designed with input from Ergonomists to suit the needs of a wide variety of user’s needs.

In an Ergonomic keyboard review, research noted that while using some ergonomic keyboards, the typist had to hold their elbows at an angle away from their body to fit their hands on the keypad. This can cause a typist to twist their wrists while reaching for certain keys. And reaching can cause shoulder strain. As we type, our hands should not bend sideways from our wrist. Our hands and wrists should move in a straight line from our elbow. This constant twisting of our wrist can cause strain and injury. With the Kinesis Solo’s compact design and separating keyboard, it is the best keyboard because the modules are adjustable to suit the typist’s body type.

The two modules of the Kinesis have the same layout as a MicroSoft keyboard. The Kinesis keypad is compact, has a pivot tether, and 8 inch connecting cable, a low profile keypad to maintain a neutral wrist posture, and low force keys.

To make it easier to convert the keypads to a more comfortable configuration, Kinesis has four optional accessory packages. These interchangeable configurations also reduce the need for multiple ergonomic keyboards. The Incline is a good replacement for the MicroSoft Natural Keyboard. The keypad is at a 10 degree slope and the modules can splay 30 degrees apart. The Freestyle VIP has V-lifters and integrated palm supports. It has a keypad slope of 10 and 15 degrees. And, it can be used with or without a pivot tether. The Freestyle V3 has keypad slopes of 5, 10, and 15 degrees. You can use it with or without a pivot tether for greater separation. The Ascent provides the greatest comfort and customization. It has two multi-angle tenting modules that are adjustable in 10 degree increments from 10 to 90 degrees.

The Kinesis Freestyle is available for Windows and Mac operating systems. Windows users need and XP or newer operating system. Mac users need OS x 10.4 or newer. Both systems need a free USB port to connect the keyboard.

Microsoft Natural ergonomic Desktop 7000 Wireless Keyboard Review

Tech products are constantly getting better. Just take a look around the tech department in your favorite store and you will certainly find several tech marvels that you would certainly like to take home. The other day I sat down at my desk and turned to my keyboard to get to work on an important report. My keyboard froze and the keys did not operate. After several more minutes of frustration, I decided it is time to upgrade my keyboard to wireless. The Microsoft natural ergonomic desktop 7000 wireless keyboard certainly caught my attention.

I was searching for a wireless keyboard with a mouse that would make it easy for me to hook it up via USB to my new laptop and stream media to the flat screen while sitting on the other side of the room. The Microsoft natural ergonomic desktop 7000 wireless keyboard is perfect for this task also. I especially like the shape of the keyboard and mouse. They feel very natural in the hand. Certainly much more natural than my last keyboard connected to my desktop computer which was very cumbersome and tiring to work at for more than a few minutes. I especially enjoy the natural slope of the keys and the ultra soft palm rest on the wireless keyboard. Odds are that I will never go back to the standard corded keyboard.

The advanced design of the Microsoft natural ergonomic desktop 7000 wireless keyboard is very responsive to even the slightest touch. My other keyboard was hard to manage and I had to pound the keys to get a response. The wireless keyboard works well with Window XP Professional and other later models of Windows. It easily communicates with a laptop or desktop computer via a USB receiver that you plug into one of the computer’s available ports.

I really enjoy the freedom of going wireless. The range is absolutely amazing. I was sitting about 20 feet away from my flat screen and laptop. There was no lag or delay in signal response. I am certainly glad I found this wireless keyboard bundled with a mouse that runs on the 2.4 GHz wireless technology.
