In a further study conducted by Blue Cross Blue Shield on an overall evaluation of keyboard preferences the following factors were assessed relating to a standard keyboard versus the Goldtouch adjustable keyboard:
- Keying effort and rhythm
- Fatigue – hands, wrist, forearms, shoulders

In every factor measured, the Goldtouch keyboard rated higher for an average of 8 out of 10 compared to the standard keyboard of 6 out of 10. In addition, 77% of the participant’s preferred the Goldtouch keyboard, 67% would buy the Goldtouch keyboard, and 67% would prefer their employer to offer the Goldtouch keyboard.
