Kinesis Keyboards, Keypads and Programmable Foot Switches

Kenesis - Computer Ergonomics

Kinesis Corporation was founded in February 1991 with the objective of developing a computer keyboard optimized for comfort and productivity.  The Model 100 was the first production-model ergonomic keyboard in the United States which was based on a traditional letter layout.  The success of the Kinesis contoured keyboard in solving intractable RSI problems has been remarkable and unprecedented. 

In 1996 Kinesis created a family of contoured keyboards to better meet the diverse needs of its customers. Always the pioneer, Kinesis created the first Mac/PC switchable and the first QWERTY/Dvorak switchable keyboards. In 1999 and 2000, subsequent continued expansion of the Kinesis product line has added selected pointing devices, and stand-alone programmable footswitches and keypads, and keyboard/mouse trays optimized for Kinesis keyboards.  The USB version of the contoured keyboard was introduced in 2002.  In the spring of 2007 Kinesis introduced its highly acclaimed Freestyle Solo convertible keyboard, the first mainstream ergonomic keyboard to offer interchangeable configurations accommodating the needs of each user.

Kinesis has evolved over the years to become a company providing one-stop shopping for serious computer users looking for products offering the best in comfort and productivity.

Because each individual has differing ergonomic requirments we offer 3 distinct designs - the Contoured, Maxim and the newly released Freestyle.  Each of the keyboards offers a unique set of comfort and productivity features allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs.

The New Freestyle convertible is a revlutionary breakthrough in computer keyboard design.  created with input from ergonomiists and health professionals, the Freestyle is the first keyboard that allow users to "personalize" their adjustments, adapting to the specific needs of each user, while providing a stylish accent to any workstation.

The legendary Contoured keyboard sets the standard for productivity and comfort.  It has proven its effectiveness both in the labortary and in the workplace.  The contoured keyboard fits both large and small users offering the most advanced feature set available.

The Maxim offer ergonomic features that go well beyond the "Natural" style keyboards without requiring an adaption period.  The Maxim has an instant and reproduccible setup of split and tenting features.
