Also available is a custom version that offers up 20 inches of separation.

Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.

The Freestyle2 utilizes a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch. The typical average maximum key force of a switch is 45 grams. This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.
An intensive five-month study conducted by Atlas Ergonomics found that 96% of the participants preferred to use the Kinesis Freestyle keyboard over their initial keyboard, and 92% of those participants used it in a completely separated configuration.
