We've refreshed our top-of-the-line ergonomic keyboard...
It still has all the great features of the original Ergo Pro — tactile feedback, greater comfort, faster typing speeds, and quiet operation — but now it's also programmable.
Programmability lets you trigger a keyboard shortcut or type a string of text, with just a single keystroke.
This can be a real lifesaver for reducing wear & tear on your hands and wrists...
Awkward or difficult-to-remember keyboard shortcuts become fast & easy via programmed macro keys.
Boilerplate text that you type repeatedly throughout the day (up to 60 characters) can be done with one key press.
Dedicated hotkeys for the 4 most important keyboard shortcuts — undo, cut, copy, and paste — are already pre-programmed to work right out of the box.
Re-programming them is easy, and doesn't require any special software.
The 12 function keys, the side hotkeys, the split spacebars, and a few other keys, are all programmable.
The gel palm supports are thick and comfortable, with folding legs that let you configure the keyboard (according to your preference) in either a tented position, tilted downward (negatively), or flat.
They can even be removed, if your desk already has palm supports built-in.
Shown above and below, this is the most ergonomic configuration, with your wrists in a neutral position, rotated slightly.
The 4 centre legs are extended, with the 2 outside legs folded in.
For the negative tilt configuration, unfold only the front legs of the palm supports.
This configuration is popular with people who find tenting too strange or difficult to adjust to.
Negative tilt offers significant ergonomic benefits, in a way that's closer to a traditional keyboard layout.
Some users start with this configuration initially (as a stepping stone) and then gradually transition to tenting.
For a perfectly flat configuration, simply fold in all the legs.
This configuration may be useful if your desk or keyboard tray has its own angle adjustment already.
To put it bluntly, most ergonomic keyboards “cheap out” on their keyswitches. They use rubber, instead of metal. Compromising here can ruin an otherwise good keyboard.
We’ve used the BEST key switches for typing...
Matias Quiet Click mechanical switches.
Their ALPS-inspired design delivers generous amounts of tactile feedback, while providing enough resistance to support the weight of your hands — exactly what you need for fast, comfortable typing.
Navigation keys have always been a big problem for ergonomic keyboards.
If you follow the standard, the keyboard is too wide.
If you don’t follow the standard, there’s a long learning curve, and users are stuck having to suffer with an awkward, unfamiliar layout.
We’ve designed a truly new and better navigation cluster — one that’s much closer to standard AND more ergonomic...
We’ve arranged the navigation keys in their traditional pattern, but we laid them out horizontally, and then positioned them along the bottom row, more like a laptop keyboard.
Thanks to our unique navigation cluster, the Ergo Pro is not as wide as other ergonomic keyboards. It’s not much wider than a laptop keyboard.
This makes it much more comfortable to use with a mouse. Since you’re not reaching as far for it, your elbow doesn’t need to flare out at an awkward angle.
Some keyboards have 2 USB ports — most have none. We’re giving you three! You can plug in your mouse, flash drives, digital cameras, and more.
We've extended the warranty to 2 years. If you have any problems, please contact us — you're in good hands.
We’ve included everything you need in the box. There’s nothing extra to buy. You are all ready to go.
BUT if you did want to add a spot of color, we have replacement palm supports available in 4 gorgeous colors.
We know that everyone has their own unique desk setup, so we've included extra cables to better accommodate your particular situation...
Desktop computer users always need longer cables; Laptop users prefer shorter ones — so, we include both long and short USB cables, 6.5‑ft (2m) and 3.3‑ft (1m) respectively.
We also include 2 Bridge Cables, for connecting the left & right sides of the keyboard together.
The short Bridge Cable is enough to accommodate most users. A longer, retractable Bridge Cable can be used to separate the sides wider apart.
For users who wish to mount the keyboard to their chair, an extra-long Bridge Cable is available for purchase. Please contact us, if you have questions about this.
All those symbols are handy, but what happens when they wear off?
They won't. They're laser etched — burned into the keys with a laser — so they'll never wear off.
The latest trend in keyboards is to have very flat & wide keys, with little or no space between them. You see this a lot on laptops and netbooks. While they look great, they can also be a little tricky to type on. The flatness makes it very easy to slide out of home row and lose your bearings.
The Ergo Pro bucks this trend. It has traditional sculpted keytops, curved to fit your fingertips, and keep you from sliding out of home position.
By holding down the Fn key, you gain access to strategically placed keyboard shortcuts for Volume Up / Down, Mute, Pause / Play, Next Track, and Previous Track.
Most keyboards allow only a few keys to be pressed at once, so they can’t keep up with very fast typists. The result is called ghosting — letters missing from what you actually typed, or additional letters that you didn’t type.
The Ergo Pro has special Anti-Ghosting Circuitry (also called n-key rollover) to eliminate these problems. You can type as fast as you’re able; the Ergo Pro will keep up.
