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.
"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
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.
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.
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!
I bought this along with the Diffrient World chair and I'm very satisfied. This thing adjusts in various ways so you can really customize the position to your liking. The main adjustment happens just by moving the stand so it's very easy and quick. Bought the stand and the keyboard platform and both have made my days in front of the computer much more enjoyable. Was very easy to assemble and install and I was done fairly quickly. Very impressed with this product. Glad my research ahead of time paid off!
I had a Humanscale keyboard system at a previous employer. With my new job came new issues from typing. I found myself with both carpel tunnel and guyon's canal syndromes on BOTH hands. Then I remembered what was missing - my Humanscale keyboard system! I am thankful every single day for the difference having the Humanscale keyboard system makes in my life. Unfortunately. I remembered the keyboard system after surgeries on both hands. Fortunately, I ordered a Humanscale keyboard system after my surgeries and have had no significant issues since.
The keyboard tray fixed all my problems. Also, the service was remarkable. I was notified when the product was ordered and they called to schedule a delivery date with set-up and they arrived exactly when they said. I would recommend this product to everyone as it is a very high quality system.
I've worked on computers for over twenty years and this keyboard tray is the best accessory I've ever bought. It gives puts the keyboard in the appropriate ergonomic position while clearing off the desktop, and easily slides under the desk when I need it out of the way.
As a result of an ergonomic assessment at work, my company purchased and installed a keyboard system for my office desk. I was experiencing shoulder pain because my keyboard was mounted too high, and I had to stretch my arm too far to reach my mouse pad. My shoulder pain did not go away completely, but within a few days, I was able to stop taking medication to treat it. I recently built a new home and within days of moving in, the shoulder pain came back. I purchased another keyboard system for my home office with the same result. While my shoulder pain never goes away totally, I no longer need medication. There is a good chance I will buy another keyboard system for my wife's home work space. The keyboard system was easy to install, is highly adjustable and rugged. I rarely write reviews, and I almost never give a 5 star rating to anything. My Humanscale keyboard is every bit a 5 star plus product.
This is a great product. I had one on an old desk at my prior company. I just bought a new desk and ordered one and I quickly remembered how much I loved using it. My business partner saw mine and thought it was a great idea. I ordered him one and he's loving it too.
I was having some back pain from having my keyboard on top of the desk -- it was slightly too high. After installing this, the pain went away, and it's so convenient to be able to push it under the desk and out of the way if I don't need the keyboard.
Its worth the price. If you watch their videos on this product you will see that the level of adjustment is beyond compare. This is critical in that you need to be in the right position and it needs to feel natural for you. I went from extremely painful tennis elbow that was threatening my long term career in digital marketing to no pain in about 2 weeks. Invest in your workspace since you spend so much time there, it is 100% worth it.
This is the third Keyboard System I have ordered for my Studio. The Artists love them. It makes a big difference in their day to use this product. Being at your desk all day takes a toll, but with these systems there is relief! Easy to use and install. Quality made. Adjustable for many different users. I highly recommend this product!
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.
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.
This keyboard tray is at the same time slim and sturdy. Keyboard bounce is kept to a minimum and the adjustability is second to none. Highly recommended. I have two at home and will gladly buy again when the need arrises. No need to look elsewhere. This is the keyboard tray that you want.
I really appreciate how easy it is to adjust this keyboard tray. I often switch chairs and positions, so I adjust the tray multiple times per day. I also adjust the mouse tray frequently. I love that everything about this keyboard is so flexible. Usually I have trouble with standard office equipment because I'm petite (and left-handed), so I was pleasantly surprised that this works so well for me.
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.
