Keyboard Systems

In many ways, a keyboard support is the heart of an ergonomic workstation. As reach and vision drive posture, an articulating keyboard system allows the user to sit in a healthy, neutral posture through bringing the keyboard and mouse to the user. A well-designed articulating keyboard system offers protection from carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain and other musculoskeletal issues. Since 1999, Humanscale has been the leading manufacturer of articulating keyboard systems and today sells more than all other manufacturers combined.

About Keyboard Systems

"A decade of ergonomic research shows that using a negative sloped adjustable keyboard tray maximises the time spent working in a neutral hand, wrist and upper body postures.  These postural benefits can’t be achieved by just using a keyboard on a height-adjustable work surface."

Dr. Alan Hedge, Cornell University

Effortless Use

Humanscale patented keyboard systems have effortless height and angle adjustment.  Promoting negative tilt keying, the keyboard platforms will not go into a positive tilt. 


Humanscale keyboard trays are solidly anchored to any work surface, and shape to specific user needs.  Hypoallergenic Gel palm supports offer height and durability, and are designed to be compatible with human skin. 


Humanscale offers three negative-tilt keyboard systems, from 5G to our latest 6G, which combines easy dial-a-tilt and height adjustability with the strongest, most stable arm on the market.  Humanscale keyboard supports come in many different configurations, including left/right customisation, to support any user need.

Works great.

Sturdy and Functional
We have used Humanscale keyboard systems for years and the quality holds up over time. In addition to the obvious ergonomic benefits, they are easy to install and provide sturdy support. The keyboard system glides easily when you need to hide it under the desk or extend it to use for typing.

Great Keyboard System!
This is the second keyboard system I have purchased from Humanscale (I have offices in two different cities). The system was easy to install and now allows me to adjust the height of the keyboard and mouse with ease. This is important because I have issues with my shoulder and this system allows me to alleviate the pain and discomfort I have when the keyboard and mouse are too high for me. I would highly recommend this as a great ergonomic keyboard system.

I like the keyboard rest and the ability to push underneath the desk. However, I would prefer it to move further underneath the desk when not in use.

Perfect with no fuss
I purchased the adjustable keyboard system for the Float and could not be more pleased. It glides in and out easily and can be adjusted to your liking; once set you never have to fuss with it again. I purchased everything when I moved to Brooklyn about 6 months ago and so far everything has held up as expected. Highly recommended!

Design Story

An ergonomically designed keyboard is essential for every workstation. Ergonomists agree that the healthiest typing posture is one that allows the wrists to maintain a neutral or slightly pronated posture – straight or bent at a slightly downward angle. For that reason, Humanscale designers created our keyboard systems to allow the keyboard to positioned anywhere from 0 degrees to a -15 degree angle.
