An Ergonomic Keyboard is a small change that can yield huge returns.
Working at the office doesn’t have to be a pain, but for a lot of us, the office has become exactly that. As we spend longer hours in front of the computer, typing away on our keyboards, we are developing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs), like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, at higher rates. The addition of small, portable devices into our lives has only exacerbated the problem. These little computers force us to struggle with tiny keyboards and trackpads in a manner that doesn’t support our joints, hands, or wrists. For businesses, this is bad for the bottom line. After all, workers in pain produce less, have higher absentee rates, and create a higher number of workers’ comp claims. At Goldtouch, we believe it’s time to usher in the age of productivity. Over the years, we’ve created an entire line of ergonomic products — from keyboards to mice, numeric keypads to wrist rests — that are strategically designed to make users more comfortable and more productive by supporting their individual bodies and working styles.

How Can an Ergonomic Keyboard Help Your Business?
- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration estimates that employers pay $20 billion in workers’ compensation claims every year for RSI-related injuries.
- On average, for every 1 person who reports RSI-related pain, 15 people do not, letting their injuries worsen until they eventually need to get surgery or drop out of the workplace altogether.
- Goldtouch has saved dozens of companies millions of dollars (including one company that saved $14 million) just by employing Goldtouch ergonomic solutions throughout their organization.
The biggest problem with traditional keyboards is that the keys are laid out straight and flat, causing users to splay their hands in unnatural positions. This is a major contributing factor to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome. In contrast, Goldtouch makes ergonomic split keyboards that pull apart in the middle and adjust from 0-30o on both the horizontal and vertical planes to help align and straighten the wrists, arms and shoulders. This allows each individual to find the angle that works best for them and type in the most natural and comfortable position.
Goldtouch ergonomic keyboards are slim and lightweight, making them an attractive addition to any desktop. Even better: Many of our keyboards were created with portability in mind. The Goldtouch Go!2 Mobile Keyboard is an example of our ergonomic mobile keyboards. As more of us work long hours in coffee shops, airplane seats, and hotel rooms, the notion of Mobile Ergonomics has become increasingly important to us, and we’re creating products to address it.
From ergonomic solutions like lightweight travel keyboards workers can slip into briefcases to wrist-friendly numeric keypads that makes number crunching easy, we carry every kind of keyboard to suit each individual’s custom needs, including those that use Mac products. And we sell more than ergonomic keyboards. You can overhaul your entire workspace with one of our Ergo Suites, which combine the products you need to make your workspace fit you.
Top Ergonomic Keyboards For 2019
With 2019 upon us, what are some of the popular ergonomic keyboards for the year? It depends on what your individual needs are, but below are the three most popular keyboards here at Goldtouch.
The second generation of the premier keyboard, the V2 Adjustable Keyboard is as popular as ever. With the ability to adjust up to 30 degrees on both the vertical and horizontal planes, as well as the low key resistance, the V2 is as high quality a keyboard today as it was when it was introduced.
For individuals on the go, the Go!2 Mobile Keyboard is the choice. It also has adjustability up to 30 degrees on both the vertical and horizontal planes and responsive keys. It is lighter with a smaller profile than most ergonomic keyboards, making it great for when you have to carry it around and use it in different locations.
And if you’re looking for built-in security in your keyboard, the ErgoSecure 2.0 Smart Card Keyboard is for you. It features a fully integrated SCM STC II Smart Card Chip, which is fully compliant with security regulations, operates in both synchronous and asynchronous mode, is 3V and 5V selectable and provides a totally adjustable transaction speed. This keyboard is TAA Compliant, FIPS 201 Approved, ISO/IEC 15411 Compliant, and available via GSA.

To help make sure our keyboards are as dependable as they are useful, we put them through tests before they are introduced to teh public. This includes our Go!2 Mobile Keyboard. The extensive product testing on this keyboard includes testing the keys to make sure:
- They are accurate in all areas (i.e., spacing, alignment in the row, keycap height alignment, keycap slant)
- Offer a feeling of actuation (i.e., the keys are free from rough feeling and no abnormal sounds)
- The operation life of the keyboard keys is optimal (function keys tested to 5M cycles minimum and standard and long keys tested to 10M cycles minimum)
- The keyboards can withstand extreme temperatures
- They are durable by completing a drop resistance test
