Keyboard

Good ergonomic keyboards make happy wrists.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) can occur from PC use when the wrist is not adequately supported. It can affect some PC users who don't take advantage of wrist rests and solutions that create more comfortable typing experiences. Here are some keyboards that are specifically designed for wrist wellness.

Ergonomic keyboards usually come in strange and uncommon shapes and sizes. Some are split down the middle, while others detach for more spacious layouts.

Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard

Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard

The Surface Ergonomic Keyboard by Microsoft is an expensive option, but that's for good reason. Microsoft has been making these types of keyboards for years and is one of few companies that seems to attract those who only use ergonomic peripherals. For $129.99, you get a keyboard that's specifically designed and engineered for productivity and comfort.

Not only that but Microsoft has also thrown in Bluetooth 4.0 for good measure and ultimate portability. The highlights of the Surface Ergonomic Keyboard, however, are the square key shape (much like other Surface keyboards) and natural arc design. As an added bonus, there are even soft Alcantara palm rests.

Logitech K350

Logitech K350

Logitech PC accessories are highly rated and they're usually worth the investment. The K350 is an ergonomic wireless keyboard that doesn't offer such prominent separation of the two sides as seen in Microsoft's Surface keyboard above, but it does have the layout slanted to help guide hands to a comfortable position. There's also a cushioned palm rest.

Logitech bundles the keyboard with the company's unifying receiver that can handle multiple periperhals with a single USB port. This makes it real easy to connect the keyboard with a Logitech mouse to a device that has a limited number of ports. The K350 is also fairly affordable at $40.

Kinesis Freestyle2

Kinesis Freestyle2

The Freestyle2 by Kinesis is available for both PC and Mac. What makes this particular keyboard unique is the fact that it has been sliced down the middle. This allows owners of the keyboard to adjust just how aggressive the angles are.

At $90, it's rather expensive but is well worth the investment should you desire to alter how the keyboard sits to suit your preferred setup.

Wrist Rest

Perhaps you already own a keyboard you love. If so, you can either purchase an official accessory for your model, should one be available, or pick up a generic rest for your wrists.
