Freestyle Pro Keyboard from Kinesis

Freestyle Pro Keyboard from Kinesis

The Freestyle Pro Keyboard from Kinesis Corporation 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 Pro is an adjustable, separated keyboard offering considerable ergonomic benefits. The Freestyle Pro Keyboard is divided into two separate modules. The two sides are connected by an adjustable linking cable that can be adjusted in length from 10" 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.

The symmetrical, compact design (achieved by eliminating the 10-key numeric pad) reduces the reach for the mouse for both left- and right-handed users while still providing numeric keypad entry via the embedded numeric keypad. 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 Pro Keyboard is equipped with Cherry MX Brown tactile mechanical keyswitches with an activation force rating of 45 grams. This tactility in conjunction with the audible click on activation is intended to assist users in reducing the degree of unnecessary force and overall effort by notifying them when downward movement is no longer required.

The feature-rich Freestyle Pro Keyboard is packed with power. The SmartSet Programming Engine supports on-the-fly remapping of any key and the 4 MB onboard memory (the v-Drive) can store up to 9 dual-layer fully programmable layouts for instant access or program-specific commands. The left hand module also features a convenient bank of 8 pre-programmed keys for one-touch access to common shortcut and navigation commands. High speed typists will appreciate the full NKRO mode and 100% Anti-Ghosting design that means no lost keystrokes or commands. A 1 ms response time (1000 mhz polling) means instant response for the performance-minded. Media controls are easily accessed via the embedded FN layer that remains available regardless of which custom layout you are currently working with.

The Freestyle Pro Keyboard will fully function with Windows 7-10, Mac OSX v10.6+, Chrome OS, or Linux and comes pre-programmed in default QWERTY layout. As a bonus both Mac and Dvorak secondary layouts are also pre-programmed and ready for access. Mac users will appreciate the option of creating a true "Mac" layout using the 4 included Mac keycaps. The included keycap puller will make keyboard customization to Dvorak or custom layouts quick and easy.

Freestanding Single Leg Rest from Score

Freestanding Single Leg Rest from Score

The Freestanding Single Leg Rest from Score is a solution for those who may need to keep their leg elevated while sitting. This leg rest is equipped with a 5-point base which allows it to remain upright without the need to attach it to any other furniture. The leg rest supports one leg at a time, either beside or under the desk. The 2" thick concave pad on the single leg model is 10" wide and 16" long, sufficient to comfortably cradle even swollen legs. The base is just under 20" in diameter to minimize interference with the second leg and foot. The leg rest is equipped with resilient foam padding, comfortably keeping the foot, knee and hip properly aligned while elevating the foot and leg. The Freestanding Single Leg Rest is suited for use following surgery in order to relieve knee and foot pain, to decrease blood pooling in the lower extremities, reduce pressure on the spine and decrease fatigue.

Elevation of the Freestanding Single Leg Rest is accomplished with a standard "chair-style" gas cylinder and lever release. The pad can be angled up to 15° from horizontal and locks in at any point within the range. The Freestanding Leg Rest can be used in most settings, however, because the base does have a diameter of 20" care does need to be taken to ensure that there will be sufficient space. The Freestanding Single Leg Rest is available with either woven fabric or leatherette coverings. A Double Leg Rest is also available if lower extremity elevation of both legs is required.

For more information on the Freestanding Single Leg Rest, see the Seating - Leg Supports product line page in our online catalog.

R-Go HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-Go Tools

R-Go HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-Go Tools

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse from R-GO Tools rotates the hand upward and outward. This angled posture reduces strain on the tissues of the forearm when compared with the traditional pronated "palm down" position. In addition, because the hand is now elevated up and away from the surface, users are no longer able to "plant" the heel of their hand in the manner that the traditional mouse position encourages. Thus, the potential for the development of RSI from repetitive or sustained wrist extension is virtually eliminated.

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse offers support for the hand and fingers, encouraging users to let their hand relax against the natural contours. Because hand sizes vary, the HE Ergonomic Mouse is available in two sizes. Both sizes incorporate a flange so that the little finger is not left dragging along the desk surface. The Medium is sized to accommodate hands sizes up 7.3" in length, is available in both Left and Right hand versions, and is equipped with a 4-level sensor that reads from 800-3200 DPI. The Large is currently only available for Right hand users and is better suited for larger hands ranging from 6.9" - 7.7" in length. It is equipped with a 4-level sensor that can read from 500-2500 DPI.

The R-GO HE Ergonomic Mouse is also available in a Wireless model as well as the BREAKmodel which provides visual cues to remind users to take regular breaks in order to reduce the risk of developing RSI.

RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design

RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design

The RollerMouse Red Wireless from Contour Design is the latest member of the RollerMouse family of inline / central pointing devices. It has the most significant changes made to the Rollermouse design so far: sleek aluminum housing that is solid and sturdy; a newly redesigned rollerbar with added thickness and texture; and a completely different tracking technology from that used in previous models. It is also avaiable in both a wired and wireless model.

The improved redesign of the Red makes cursor control more precise and effortless without compromising durability and robustness, replacing the old mechanical clicking with a newer "virtual" clicking mechanism. It is the most advanced model in the RollerMouse family.

Note: Keyboard not included.
