Ergonomic Keyboard Tray System
An articulating keyboard system is the most important component of an ergonomic workstation next to the chair. For people who work on a computer for 2 or more hours per day, a high-end articulating keyboard system can provide serious protection from a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, neck pain, and upper and lower back pain. With our advanced technology, award-winning designs and hundreds of options, Humanscale has been the market leader in articulating keyboard systems for 5 years running. We pioneered intuitive adjustability and eliminated knee obstruction. And our newest offerings remain several steps ahead of the pack. If you're serious about working in comfort, you've come to the right place.
"A decade of ergonomics research shows that using a negatively sloped, adjustable keyboard tray maximizes the time spent working in neutral hand, wrist and upper body postures. These postural benefits can not be achieved by just using a keyboard on a height adjustable work surface" - Dr. Alan Hedge, Cornell University
We offer a full line of premium mechanisms, keyboard platforms, mouse platforms and palm rests to meet the needs of a wide variety of individuals, workstations and office environments. By combining these elements, you will create the most non-intrusive, intuitively adjustable keyboard support available. If your needs are not met by any of our standard options, we can create a solution customized to your specific requirements.
THE NEUTRAL REACH ZONE
Each of our platform options is designed to ensure that users type and mouse within their Neutral Reach Zone, thereby encouraging safe, sustainable working postures.
"The Neutral Reach Zone is the area that can be conveniently reached with a sweep of the forearm while the upper arm hangs in a natural position at the side." (Sanders & McCormick,1993)
