Maxim Split Adjustable Keyboardby Kinesis Corporation
| Ergonomic Benefits Additional Resources Usage Tips |
The Maxim adjustable keyboard offers a more flexible, more comfortable design than regular keyboards. Accommodating a wide range of user preferences, it is simply the best adjustable keyboard at any price! Compatible with virtually any PC system.Click here for the results of a keyforce comparison study conducted by Keytronic's Reliability Laboratory.
Ideal for situations where a cost-effective ergonomic solution is required with a minimal adaptation period. It is especially effective for a multi-user environment as this keyboard can be adjusted to be a conventional or 'natural' style keyboard with or without a palm support. If you have a fixed split ('natural' or 'wave') style keyboard and want to reduce the reach for the mouse, this is the ideal solution. If you are looking for a left handed version of a fixed split keyboard, add on the Kinesis Low Force Tactile Numeric Keypad (AC210USB - see later on this page).
- Variable split: Much more flexible than the 'natural' style keyboards; no adaptation required. Select any opening between 0° and 30°, a wider range than any fixed-split keyboards.
- Adjustable lateral tilt: Select between 0°, 8°, or 14°... And easy to adjust! This allows users to minimize forearm muscle tension without the pitfalls of excessive tilt.
- Compact design: Narrower than 'natural' style keyboards while maintaining full-size key spacing, minimizing adaptation time. In addition, the reduced footprint means your mouse is closer than with conventional keyboards.
- Instant, reproducible setup: Of both split and tenting features.
- Removable palm supports: Comfortably padded to take the weight off your shoulders, relieving neck and shoulder pain.
- Quiet, tactile, light touch switches: Keyswitches provide a soft touch, reducing strain on your fingers while providing positive feedback. Full n-key rollover supports maximum typing speed and multi-key combinations.
- Flexibility in configuration: User 1 needs a conventional keyboard without a palm support, no problem. User 2 wants a 'natural' style left handed keyboard, add the AC210USB numeric keypad, put it on the left, tent the keyboard to 8° and adjust the splay, and you have a left handed 'natural' style keyboard. User 3 wants to tent it higher and remove the palm supports... all options are available with the Maxim.
