The Best Ergonomic Keyboards for Your Home Office
Looking for an ergonomic keyboard for your home office? We reviewed dozens of ergonomic keyboard to bring you the very best.
The Matias Programmable Ergo Pro Keyboard is hands-down one of the best ergonomic keyboards we’ve reviewed. Not only is it a beautiful keyboard with its laser etched keys but it’s extremely comfortable to use. I personally use this keyboard with my Macbook Pro.
Typing on a regular keyboard for hours on end can really take its toll on your hands, wrists, and forearms. The Matias Programmable Ergo Pro Keyboard was designed to help alleviate some of the pain that comes with extended typing sessions. It has a variety of ergonomic features that make it more comfortable to use, including split spacebars, gel palm supports, and folding legs.
The gel palm supports are thick and comfortable, with folding legs that let you configure the keyboard in a tented position, tilted downward (negatively), or in flat position. Having the split keyboard allows you to keep your wrists in a neutral position, which can help to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
In addition, split keyboards can help you to type more accurately and with greater speed. This is because each hand is able to move independently, which allows you to make use of all of your fingers. We found this to be the case with the Matias Ergo Pro keyboard and its sculpted key tops.
Not only is the Matias Programmable Ergo Pro Keyboard comfortable to use, but it also has a number of programmable keys that let you customize it to your own needs. Dedicated hotkeys for the 4 most important keyboard shortcuts — undo, cut, copy, and paste — are already pre-programmed to work right out of the box. Once you get accustomed to using those keys on the far left of the keyboard, you’ll find them to be great for quickly cutting and pasting.
The 12 function keys, the side hotkeys, the split spacebars, and a few other keys, are all programmable. This is a great time-saving feature when typing the same words or phrases many times throughout the day. As an added bonus, there are three additional USB ports so you can easily connect all of your devices. It also includes a USB-C adapter with the Mac version.
This keyboard is popular all over the world for both the PC and the Mac.
Type naturally while working from home with the Ergo k860 from Logitech. This advanced ergonomic keyboard promotes an improved typing posture. The curved, split key frame reduces muscle strain on your wrists and forearms—keeping your hands, neck and shoulders relaxed.
The keys were crafted for precision and fluidity which you can feel when typing on them. They also promote increased key stability that reduces noise and optimizes responsiveness so you can feel—but not hear—every keystroke.
This keyboard has an integrated number-pad, multi-device capabilities, and two-year battery life . The Ergo K860 is certified ergonomic by United States ergonomics.
Give your hands and wrists a rest while working at home. The ergonomic wave-shaped keyboard—with a cushioned palm rest, Constant Curve keys, and familiar layout—puts you ahead of the comfort curve without the learning curve.
Your fingers vary in length so this keyboard supports the actual, varied lengths of your fingers. The palm rest helps position your hands comfortably on the keyboard—and offers a comfortable place to rest your palms when you’re not typing.
For the cons, this keyboard is a bit noisier than others so fast typers will be heard. Also, there have been cases where the white painted letters rub off the keys which makes it difficult for typists that haven’t learned all the key placements.
The extended battery life of up to three years practically eliminates the need to replace batteries.
Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad features an extended layout, with document navigation controls for quick scrolling while working from home. A scissor mechanism beneath each key allows for increased stability, while optimized key travel and a low profile provide a comfortable and precise typing experience. The numeric keypad is also great for spreadsheets and finance applications. And the built-in, rechargeable battery is incredibly long-lasting, powering your keyboard for about a month or more between charges.
Arteck is known for making very high quality and affordable blue-tooth devices. This keyboard is no exception to that rule: it features simplicity, low cost affordability, and broad based compatibility with all computers, iPads, tablets from Microsoft, Google, and Apple. If you want a multi-device stainless steel full size keyboard, this is a great on for a price conscious buyer.
