Separate thumb keypads
The thumb keypad includes often used keys such as Enter, Space, Backspace, Delete and the combination keys, Control and Alt on the PC (Command and Option on the Macintosh). This redistributes the workload from your relatively weaker and overused little fingers to stronger thumbs.
This separation minimizes strain and stretching by positioning your arms approximately at shoulder width and with wrists straight. This design reduces abduction and ulnar deviation (common symptoms experienced with repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis).
- Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8
- Mac OS 8.6 and higher (Not compatible with non-US layouts)
- IMPORTANT USB 3.0 NOTE: Advantage keyboard’s currently do not work on most Windows 7 computers which have USB 3.0 ports, even if they also have USB 2.0. This problem does not exist in other operating systems, including Windows 8, Mac & Linux. In some cases bios settings can be tweaked to fix the Windows 7 problem see Troubleshooting-Advantage Keyboard.
