Top 4 Ergonomic Keyboards of 2019

Wednesday, 16 October 2019

Regular keyboards can cause stress and pain on your fingers and wrists, and can be unsuitable for people without the regular use of both their hands. Luckily, there are other keyboards available with ergonomic features that will help you type faster and more comfortably, and can cater to people with a range of impairments. Here at Health And Care, we want to make your decision as easy as possible so we've had our experts hand select four of our best ergonomic keyboards for reducing the symptoms of RSI and other conditions.

Catering for dual-handed people, the keyboard has built-in palm resting pads for relaxation and reduced fatigue, and a central number cluster to reduce finger movement and increase typing speed. The keyboard is available in a range of layouts, such as QWERTY or Dvorak, and models and can be purchased in either black or grey.

Our Best One-Handed Ergonomic Keyboard

Maltron Single-Hand Keyboard

Aircast Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace

For people without the use of one functioning arm, the Maltron Single-Hand Keyboard is designed with carefully selected ergonomic features to support one-handed typing. The keyboard utilises a 3D design that fits different shaped hands or fingers with ease, giving you faster control over your typing. Both left and right hand models are developed for "Soft Touching", and there are Push on and Push off keys for Shift, Control and Alt functions, essential for single hand use. Experts have recorded impressive speeds of up to 85wpm (Words Per Minute) using the keyboard.

Key Features: Fantastic technical ergonomic keyboard for single-hand use; reduce stress and frustration; 85wpm recorded


Our Best No-Hand Keyboard

Maltron Mouth/Stick Keyboard

Maltron Mouth/Stick KeyboardDesigned for people with conditions that affect the use of both arms, the Maltron Mouth/Stick Keyboard utilises a streamlined ergonomic design that reduces frustration and stress. The keyboard features a rectangular concave design which matches natural head and stick movement. Most used keys are centred as a cluster, minimising single finger/stick activity and allowing for faster typing. The keyboard is fitted with VESA 100mm threaded mounting holes that allow the keyboard to be attached to most computer monitor arms. The model has Push on and Push off keys for Shift, Control and Alt functions. There is also an option to turn off key repeating on the keyboard, or set it to SLOW, MEDIUM or FAST. This is an essential product for people without the use of arms to speed up their typing.

Key Features: Streamlined ergonomic keyboard for mouth/stick or single finger use; type faster and easier with added comfort


Our Best Keyboard for Visual Impairments

Maltron Expanded Keyboard

Maltron Expanded KeyboardOriginally designed for people with Cerebral Palsy, the Maltron Expanded Keyboard provides huge accessibility to most physically disabled and visually impaired people. This is our largest keyboard with an impressive surface area (62 x 23cm) and a built-in keyguard, reducing type areas and producing higher work rates. The keyboard is constructed using strong and durable steel and has an easy wipe surface. Not only does the keyboard have indicator LEDs, but boasts large clear characters and key labels: black on white for alphanumeric and cursor keys, black on pink for function keys and black on yellow for control keys. The keyboard includes a USB Connector with an in-line 5 pin DIN type snap-connector which is designed to separate if the cable is pulled too tight, a fail-safe mechanism to prevent damage to computer. You can programme the keyboard to support either QWERTY or FoU layouts, and there are Expanded Keyboards available with in-built Audio-Feedback.

Key Features: Ergonomic keyboard with a range of expanded features for people with physical or visual impairments; high accessibility
