Unimouse from Contour Design

Unimouse from Contour Design

The Unimouse from Contour Design is designed to encourage the user to change hand position throughout the day or as discomfort is detected. It incorporates a 35° - 70° friction-based tilt mechanism and a fully articulating thumb support which is designed to adapt the mouse to fit the dimensions of most hands.

Employing the tilt mechanism enables the user to reduce the risks associated with pronation of the forearm. With the 35° - 70° range of adjustment most users should be able to find a vertical orientation which is comfortable to them. The friction-based locking system also permits the user to incrementally adjust the angle throughout the day, in response to the particular work being performed or responding to negative feedback which their body may be providing. The vertical tilt is complemented by the articulating thumb support which can be adjusted through a full 3-D range. Utilizing the pivot, slide and pull-out options on the thumb support lets users adapt the mouse for hand length and width, fine-tuning the dimensions to fit their exact needs. As with the tilt option - if discomfort is detected the user can effortlessly make minor adjustments while seeking an optimum position. Because none of the adjustments on the Unimouse are actually "locked in" any user who wishes to avoid static posture of the hand has the option of encouraging postural change by changing the Unimouse body angle and thumb support position at any time.

The Unimouse is equipped with a 10 level sensor that reads from 800 - 2800 DPI. Sensitivity adjustment is via a single button located on the top of the base, just behind the 2-colour indicators. This frees users to adjust the mouse as needed for basic or fine control movements. The three light-activation buttons have a 20 million click rating and feature crisp activation with an audible click. These provide access to Left, Middle and Right Clicks. An on-board shortcut gives the user the option of switching the Middle Click button to perform a Double Click with Auto Scroll/Scroll Lock remaining accessible via the scroll wheel click. The scroll wheel is equipped with a rubber tire for grip and has distinct but soft detents.

Users who like to customize their mouse will appreciate the wide range of programmable options that are available. There are six programmable buttons which can be reassigned to perform any standard mouse action as well as a host of speciality actions. For users with a good memory the available PC and Mac compatible drivers also offer the option of setting "program specific" command layouts. In the program specific mode only 5 buttons remain accessible for programming.

Full Travel Mini Keyboard from SolidTek

Full Travel Mini Keyboard from SolidTek

The Full Travel Mini Keyboard from SolidTek has the look of a laptop scissor-switch style keyboard but does not use scissor switches for stabilization. Instead a unique clover leaf keyswitch design stabilizes the completely flat keycap, preventing tilting both from front to back and side to side. The spacing between keycaps is very small compared to most keyboards, but the key pitch is standard, so the comparatively larger keycap tops are easier to target than on many keyboards. The key travel is a full 3.5 mm and the tactile rubber dome membrane switches provide a crisp typing feel.

The Full Travel Mini Keyboard has full size alpha-numeric keys and key pitch, with all other keys reduced from a standard keyboard. This allows the keyboard to offer a minimal 12" wide x 5.15" deep footprint on the desk, and at 0.85" tall, this keyboard is also portable if required. This keyboard includes an embedded numeric keypad which has blue legends, and is only available in a wired format (USB 1.1 compatible).

Freestyle Edge Keyboard from Kinesis Gaming

Freestyle Edge Keyboard from Kinesis Gaming

Calling all Gamers, Graphic Designers, and Programmers! There is no longer a need to sacrifice performance in pursuit of ergonomics. The Freestyle Edge from Kinesis Gaming integrates proven ergonomics and tenkeyless design in a mechanical keyboard packed with the latest in custom programmability and performance. The result is a keyboard that offers the advanced functionality that high performance users demand while providing the same ergonomic benefits that tens of thousands of everyday computer users have enjoyed for years.

Based on the proven ergonomic design of the Freestyle2 and its predecessor, the Freestyle Solo, the Freestyle Edge is an adjustable, separated keyboard offering considerable ergonomic benefits. The Freestyle Edge Keyboard is divided into two separate modules. The two sides are connected by an adjustable linking cable that can be adjusted in length from 12" to 20". This separation allows users to position the left and right sides of the keyboard shoulder width apart, allowing the shoulders, elbows, arms and wrists to relax in an anatomically neutral position. This greatly improves posture and blood flow in the upper body, prevents undesirable rotation at the shoulders, and eliminates ulnar deviation at the wrist. For gamers this separation offers the additional advantage of being able to position a mousing device, joystick or other controller centrally located between the keyboard halves. As well, for games which relay primarily on left hand controls the right half can be positioned out of the way to the right and with the left module and mouse or controller being brought in to a more central location.

The symmetrical, compact design (achieved by eliminating the ten key numeric pad) reduces the reach for the mouse for both left- and right-handed users. The Freestyle Edge Keyboard provides access to numbers along the top row. Users who want a stand-alone numeric keyboard have the option of adding either the Low Force Tactile Numeric Keypad or the Freestyle2 Keypad for PC.

The Freestyle Edge Keyboard is available in three models that each feature different premium Cherry Mechanical keyswitches; Cherry MX Blue, Cherry MX Brown or Cherry MX Red). These premium keyswitches are topped by full height concave laser etched keycaps and are equipped with blue backlighting featuring 12 custom lighting modes.

Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation

Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation

The Ring Pen Ultra from Grandee Corporation restores writing comfort for those suffering from conditions such as arthritis which make it difficult to maintain a grip on a pen or pencil. The Ring Pen Ultra slides onto the index finger and with the thumb and middle finger acting as stabilizing guides provides full control for even fine movements.

The Ring Pen Ultra builds on the successful design of the earlier No-Grip Ring Pen by providing the same "gripless" functionality but now with the capability to accommodate virtually any pen, pencil, or even paint brushes.

While intended to serve the needs of those who cannot grip it also offers all users the chance to work with a more relaxed hand, reducing the potential for the development of RSI related to the tight grip required to control most writing devices.

The same features which make the Ring Pen Ultra successful as a writing aid also make it well suited to serve as an eating utensil holder for those who have difficulty holding or manipulating a fork or spoon. Utensils can be easily inserted into the slot, creating "gripless" control and restoring independence and dignity to those who might otherwise have extreme difficulty or be completely unable hold the utensils.

The Ring Pen Ultra is available in 3 sizes&emdash;Small, Medium, and Large&medash;thus providing a solution to suit virtually any user, be they a child or an adult with large fingers. The small will accommodate children and those with very small hands, the Medium will accommodate most women with average sized hands, and the Large should work for most men.
