Balance Keyboardby Contour Design Inc.
| Additional Resources Usage Tips Accessories |
The Balance Keyboard from Contour Design is specifically designed to work with the RollerMouse Red, Red Plus, and Free3. The slim bezel at the base of the keyboard ensures that the hands have only a minimal reach between the rollerbar and the keyboard. In addition the shallow depth of the Balance Keyboard, just 4.7", can accommodate deployment of Inline Pointing Devices where many keyboards will not work due to limited tray depth. It is wireless and uses two AAA batteries, connecting to a PC or Mac via a small USB wireless receiver (which can be stored conveniently in the housing when not in use). There is no need for an ON/OFF switch due to smart, power-saving technology.In addition, there are media keys for accessing common functions as well as traditional function keys (F1 - F12) accessible via the Fn Lock feature.
The underside of the keyboard is contoured to elevate the front to the same height as a RollerMouse. This creates an ergonomically desirable negative incline (or downward slope), and virtually eliminates unintentional input from the RollerMouse as the user is typing. Fold out feet at the back raise the rear edge of the keyboard higher than the front to create a positive incline. (Not recommended.)
Reduces Injuries from Wrist Extension
- The thin housing of the Balance Keyboard allows the majority of users to type without creating the unhealthy, upward bend at the wrist known as wrist extension. In addition, when using mousing devices like the RollerMouse, the adjustable legs and tilt mechanism on the Balance Keyboard gives the user more options for adjusting into a negative, neutral, or positive typing stance.

Creates More Workspace
- The wireless connectivity of the Balance Keyboard eliminates the need for a long cord on the desk, which can often get entangled and obstruct access to other objects, forcing the user to clear areas of the desktop that would otherwise be occupied by useful objects.
Quicker Access to Keys from RollerMouse
- The minimalist housing of the Balance Keyboard makes access to its full-size keys easier and quicker, especially when used in conjunction with a RollerMouse model like the RollerMouse Red.
- Designed for Use with RollerMouse: The Balance Keyboard was designed to work seamlessly with the RollerMouse line of central pointing devices. The minimalist design allows for efficiently going from keyboard to mouse, so the user can be more productive while working at the computer.
- Adjustable Tilting Angle: The built-in adjustable legs of the Balance Keyboard allows for tilting the angle of the keyboard in negative, neutral, or positive positions according to user preferences.
- Wireless: The Balance Keyboard is fully wireless, eliminating the need for cords that tend to clutter the desktop. The keyboard runs on 2 AAA batteries and includes its own USB wireless receiver. No on/off switch is needed, due to the power-saving technology incorporated into its design.
- Media Keys: The Balance Keyboard also includes media keys for basic common keyboard tasks which can be programmed according to the needs of the user.
- Space-Saving Design: The shallow 4.7" depth of the Balance Keyboard can accommodate deployment of a Inline Pointing Device on trays as shallow as 8".
