Five Awesome Ergonomic Keyboards for Computer Users

If you have any sort of problems with your hands or wrists during the day and you spend a lot of time typing on a computer you could benefit from an ergonomic keyboard. An ergonomic keyboard will put your hands in a more natural typing position. There are different styles in the ergonomic keyboard range with some just tilting the keys slightly and raising some keys up and others having more extreme designs.

Some ergonomic keyboards are much more adjustable and go so far as to complete split the keyboard into two pieces. The more common sort of keyboard is the Microsoft line that splits the keys into two sections and tilts them towards each of your hands. If you have had issues with your hands or wrists in the past this sort of keyboard can help you prevent recurrence of the injury. Check out the list below for five of the coolest ergonomic keyboards in the land.

1. Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 - This keyboard is one of the many ergonomic offerings from Microsoft and is one of the cheaper versions it offers. This keyboard sells for $29.99 and has all the buttons and keys you expect on a modern multimedia keyboard. It has a split key arrangement with the keys angled towards each hand. This is a wired keyboard.

2. Logitech Wireless Wave Combo Mk550 With Keyboard and Laser Mouse - This is a bundle of a very nice Logitech wireless keyboard and the Logitech Wireless Wave keyboard. Logitech doesn't split the keys as Microsoft does for this keyboard. The keys are still joined, but they are raised in the center and depressed on the outside to make for a more natural typing feel. The keyboard looks really cool too. The set uses the unifying nano receiver from Logitech so you only need one USB port for both items and the keyboard has a full array of multimedia controls. The combination costs $54.99.

3. Microsoft Wired Natural Keyboard Elite - This is one of the Microsoft keyboards that has been around in one form or another for a long time. It has basic keys in a split arrangement with the keys angled towards the user's hands. The keyboard is wired and will work via a USB or PS/2 port. The wired keyboard sells for $29.99. The main difference between this and the first MS keyboard on the list is the lack of multimedia keys here.

4. Kinesis Freestyle Solo Ergonomic USB Keyboard - This is one of the more extreme ergonomic keyboards out there. The keyboard is split into two pieces and the user can arrange the pieces of the keyboard as wide apart as they want and with as much angle towards their hands as is desired. The keyboard can also go a step further and lift the insides of the keyboard up so that the keyboard halves form sort of a tent peak. I would imagine there would be quite a learning curve to use this keyboard effectively. You can buy the Freestyle Solo right now for $89.

5. Fellowes 98915 Antimicrobial Split Design Keyboard - This keyboard looks a lot like the Microsoft offerings that we have already talked about. The keyboard has a full range of multimedia keys and a split key design. The keys are angled towards the user's hands and all the keys you expect are included. This keyboard also adds an antimicrobial Microban treatment to help keep germs from spreading in a communal work environment. You can get this keyboard right now for $40.84.
