Also known as Comfort Classic and Comfort Keyboard Original
National Design Award: Johns Hopkins University
100% adjustable keyboard! 100% fix-split keyboard! 100% angled keyboard! 100% lateral placement!
Comfort Keyboard System increases typing comfort and decreases fatigue.
Sections can be positioned close together (18.25") or far apart (24" Max) adjusting to a comfortable shoulder width for each individual.
Sections independently adjust to each person's natural typing posture-each section rotates and tilts to an infinite number of positions.
Left-hand, right hand, and numeric keypad (each section is approximately 6.5" wide).
Numeric keypad can be positioned on the left..an instant productivity gain for left-handers.
Each section easily adjusts 0-90 degrees into an infinite number of positions and then locks into place.
Program the left or right spacebar to backspace for added convenience.
Remap the entire keyboard (reassign keys to different locations) for users who find it convenient to have various keys rearranged.
Individually programmable macro keys allows you to program a series of keystrokes into an individual key to save keystrokes, and help save time.
Smooth tactile Membrane keyswitch technology.
Remapping (re-mapping) mode allows you to customize and map your keyboard (i.e. reassign virtual keys to different physical locations). This can be useful for software applications that require the repeated use of one or more specific keys. It is also useful for consumers who simply find it more convenient to have various keys rearranged. Every key on the keyboard is programmable.
A macro is multiple keystrokes stored in a single key. Pressing that key plays back those multiple keystrokes. If you find yourself typing a particular series of characters repeatedly, you can program that series into a macro key. You simply select a key to represent the series of characters. You may also program macros to reassign (remap) keys on your keyboard. In addition, you can use a macro to exit a program and enter another program quickly. A series of macros can be stored as a "macro file" to your computer's hard drive. Eacho macro file can hold up to approximately 1378 keystrokes. All 1378 keystrokes can be assigned to one macro or as many as 94 macros, using any keys except those listed below, with varying numbers of keystrokes per macro.
For added convenience, the Comfort Keyboard allows you to program either the left or right space bar to backspace. This feature will enable you to program either the left or right space bar to have dual function as a space bar or a backspace. After programming the key, the space bar will function as a space bar if you press the space bar once. The space bar will function as a backspace if you hold the space bar down.
Comfort Keyboard Systems help reduce incidence rates and the severity of carpal tunnel (CTS) pain and RSI - repetitive stress injuries
