Maltron Ergonomic Keyboard

Split design eliminates wrist twist and allows a central number cluster which can be used by right or left hand as preferred.

Finger length adapted - offset key rows accommodate different lengths of fingers to reduce movement and tension.  
 
Straight vertical key columns eliminate tens of thousands of finger and wrist twists in a day's work.
 
Thumb keys for Space (plus E on Maltron layouts), Return, Delete, Backspace and Cursor keys reduce hand and arm movement. Versatile thumbs are used far more effectively.
 
Built in large palm resting pads allow immediate hand and arm relaxation during "Thinking Time", and promote a reduction in arm rotation.
