Cornell University conducted extensive testing of the Safetype Keyboard™, and found that it greatly reduces the risk of Repetitive Motion Injury (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.) Please watch the 3.5 minute streaming video; just click on the video camera to the right.
Every keyboard claims to have a new ergonomic design. Unfortunately,
there is no standard for calling something 'ergonomic'. The
word is commercially over-worked and functionally meaningless.
Our video demonstrates that the most common 'ergonomic' keyboards
simply shift the location of tension from the wrists and forearms
up to the neck and shoulders.
|How the Safetype Keyboard™ Works
- It doesn't just move the problem to
area of the body.
- It eliminates the 3 most damaging postures:
- It solves real problems,
not imaginary ones.
Available in black only
Ask yourself this question. "Will my comfort
be increased by using keyboards that create more tension in
my neck and shoulders?
The Science of Biomechanics shows that many
computer keyboards are seriously flawed in actual use. Most
keyboard designs are modifications of a flat keyboard. The
designer of the patented SafeTypeTM
keyboard asked instead, "What is the most neutral location
for human hands and then how do we place the keys to be available
to the fingers while the user is in that position ?"
The SafeTypeTM is the only keyboard
that can place the user in a position that is completely Orthopedically
NeutralTM while doing data entry and cannot be
adjusted improperly by the user. It provides unsurpassed comfort.
The Safetype KeyboardTM is the only keyboard demonstrated in a Major University Study to virtually eliminate the high-stress postures that contribute to Repetitive Stress Injuries, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If you stand with your arms relaxed at your sides, and use only the biceps to bring your hands up and forward until your forearms are parallel to the floor, you are now in the most relaxed typing position possible, with your palms facing each other. That is the position you are in when typing with the SafeType KeyboardTM.
SafeTypeTM keyboards were designed
according to scientific Biomechanical Principles, not simply
modified from old flat keyboard designs. It's the Science
of Biomechanics at work for you!
Don't just take our word for it. Watch our streaming
video so you understand the principles of the design. Then
take a look to see what users
of our keyboards have to say about them!
You can train yourself to be a competent Touch
Typist in as little as 90 minutes. You must be a competent
Touch Typist to effectively use the Safetype.TM

USB CONNECTORS: The lavender connector
acitvates the keyboard; the black connector activates the
USB port at the back of the keyboard.
