10 ergonomic keyboards review: typing responsibly

A look at the world of ergonomic keyboards



If you are serious about ergonomics at work or at home, an ergonomic keyboard is definitely a purchase worth considering. The big question is of course what you can buy. We tested nine models to find out what you get for your money.

If you sit behind a desk a lot and frequently use a keyboard, you might experience small pain or more serious pain in your wrists, forearms, shoulders or back. This could be the result of bad posture or potentially the result of equipment that is poorly adjusted to each other. A traditional keyboard could also be the evil-doer, especially if you use it throughout the entire day.

To combat the pain that is caused by the use of a keyboard, you can choose to purchase an ergonomic model. This is easier said than done, because that part of the keyboard market is quite diverse. To try and bring some order to this we tested no less than ten models: Bakker Elkhuizen M-Board 870, Bakker Elkhuizen S-Board 840, Fujitsu KBPC E, Goldtouch Adjustable V2, Goldtouch Go!2 Mobile, Kinesis Freestyle 2, Matias Ergo Pro, Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop.

We would like to thank Bakker Elkhuizen and R-Go Tools for sending us part of the keyboards that are covered in this article.
