Testimony

"I certainly liked the Penclic Keyboard due to the fact that it was low profile and had good tactile feeling. Also being in such small size. Before we had tried the Penclic Keyboard, we had invested in an angled laptop stand which contributed to a complete wrong angel for the wrist. Now with the Penclic Keyboard, we have found a really comfortable visual- and ergonomic working position by combining the keyboard and our monitor in a certain position. I will certainly recommend this working position to my customers during my work as a visual ergonomics consultant."
