Features

  • Multichannel Technology - The Kinesis Freestyle2 Blue wireless keyboard combines our award winning split-adjustable ergonomic design with the convenience of bluetooth connectivity. No more sacrificing comfort when typing on your iMac, Macbook, iPad or iPhone. Multichannel technology lets you pair up to 3 three Bluetooth-enabled devices with the Freestyle2 Blue and instantly switch between them directly from the keyboard.

  • Multichannel Technology


  • Sleek, low profile design - Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.

  • Sleek, low profile design


  • Accommodates a wide range of individuals - From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and/or eliminates ulnar deviation.

  • Accommodates a wide range of individuals


  • Optional palm supports - Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.

  • Optional palm supports


  • Left side driverless hot keys & Bluetooth Multichannel keys - Driverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Beginning of Line, End of Line, Cut, Undo, Copy, Select All and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user.

  • Standard Mac Shortcuts - Esc/force quit, Brightness, Exposé, Dashboard, Play Audio, Audio Volume, Dock, Eject & Off/Sleep, just like on the Apple Magic keyboards.

  • Familiar key layout - Familiar Mac key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.

  • Low-force, tactile key switches - The Freestyle2 utilizes low-force, membrane key switches featuring tactile feedback for optimal ergonomics. Activating the Freestyle2 keys requires 25% less force (45g) than the Microsoft Natural (60g) and many other ergonomic keyboards. These custom membrane style switches are super quiet and offer tactile feedback to discourage "bottoming out" on each key stroke.
