Kinesis Contoured Advantage Keyboard

 

The Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard is designed for users whose RSI-related pain is not helped by a traditional split keyboard, such as the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 . Unlike a traditional keyboard, which features raised keys on a...

Vertical key placement reduces finger motion and results in more comfortable typing; keys at the outer edges let you hold your arms closer to shoulder width; included exercise book helps you adapt to the new layout.

Expensive; it takes days, if not weeks, to adapt to the unusual key layout; impossible to use if you have long nails; lacks a dedicated 10-key number pad.

The Kinesis Advantage Contoured Keyboard requires a significant investment of both money and time, but those who make the investment will be rewarded with a more comfortable typing experience.

An excellent ergonomic keyboard.

 

This is a great keyboard for anyone with carpal tunnel issues. If a keypad is not a high necessity for daily use, and utilizing the number keys across the top of the keyboard is satisfactory, then the Kinesis Contoured Advantage Keyboard will be...

Every key is located in such a manner that after one or two weeks, even the average typist, administrative secretary or programmer will adjust to using this keyboard

The keyboard desperately needs a keypad and the arrow keys need to be relocated because they often are accidetnly struck when trying to select a nearby letter

"comfortable, and facilitates more rapid keyboarding."

 

can't do without it ...

everything .... except the cost ... I first purchased this keyboard at least 15 years ago, when it was priced much more closely to other, standard keyboards, if I'm recalling correctly.....most often-used keys are conveniently at the thumb areas.

cost; some people take a while to get used to it. I happened to find it easy to adjust to.

"Best Ergo Keyboard ever!"

 

I bought the keyboard, kept switching back to the Microsoft 4000 b/c I could not type. I got rid of the old keyboard and forced myself to spend a few days working the exercises.

No more wrist pains!

It takes the exercises and a little bit of time to learn to type on but once thats done you are on you way to a real treat for your hands and wrists.
