Trulyergonomic Keyboard Claims to be a Revolution

by


While I’ve been touch-typing for years, sometimes as fast as a secretary, I’ve never tried any of the so-called ergonomic keyboards out there. Supposedly they will make you type faster and reduce some of the stress on your wrists. TrulyErgonomic claims their new keyboard is “revolutionary” and “a major update to the computer keyboard.” Is it really? Only time will tell.

The TrulyErgonomic keyboard works its magic by aligning your hands, wrists and fingertips in the optimal neutral position for typing. That all sounds good, but the main problem is that if you use a laptop or another computer at work, you’ll have to change the location of your hands and the way that you type if you use an ergonomic keyboard at home. This could be an issue.

This keyboard certainly looks different. It’s got a symmetrical look, that might work well. Also, they have high-quality key switches and an integrated palm rest. It can be ordered with a different layout, as well as blank for all of the braver touch-typists out there. The only catch is that it costs $169 (USD).

    The truly ergonomic keyboard is not truly ergonomic. Yes it’s a nice try but it still forces your hand to twist. The best angle to type at is from 15 degrees to 45 degrees. As far as I can see this poor excuse for an ergonomic keyboard is flat. While yes it addresses the staggering problem found in all Qwerty keyboards it is the arrangement of the letters on the keyboard that causes the majority of the problems. Changing the keyboard over to Dvorak will improve this keyboard and I do like where they put the enter key but the Kinesis contoured keyboard addresses the same problem with the enter key as well as putting the backspace key under the thumb not under the pinky which is one of the most used keys in typing. For a truly ergonomic keyboard, according to Dr. Kroemer who invented the split keyboard, you need to combine the keypad of the smartboard with the physical form of the comfort keyboard. That would make the perfect keyboard but if and only if it is in Dvorak.

    I have just instituted a class action lawsuit against IBM, Dell, HP, Microsoft, Apple and others because the truth of the matter is that the physical ergonomics of your keyboard matters much less that the fact that it is still in the Qwerty layout.

    Microft and all of the others above know full well that the Dvorak layout is built in to their computers but they have made absolutely no attempt to alert customers of this fact.
