Research

Atlas Ergonomics White Paper

This white paper provides a complete overview of an intensive five-month study conducted by Atlas Ergonomics that reviewed the impact of the Freestyle keyboard’s unique split design on posture, comfort, and performance among approximately 80 software manufacturing employees. The study focused on the positions of the hands and upper extremities during keyboard use.

Here are the highlights:


  • 92% of participants used the Freestyle in a totally split configuration as opposed to splayed (i.e. both modules connected together)
  • The Freestyle benefits a wide range of body types.  The degree of ulnar deviation was reduced across all BMI levels and body types.  The data clearly shows a dramatic effect for participants of all sizes (percent improvement:  41-78% left hand; 72-81% right hand)
  • There was no loss of performance measured for participants throughout the length of the study
  • At the end of the study 96% of participants preferred the Freestyle over their previous keyboard
