The Freestyle2 Ascent Accessory Kit is a specialized accessory for the Freestyle2 Keyboard. With the Ascent Accessory installed, the Freestyle2 Keyboard becomes an option for those whose inability to pronate (i.e. who cannot hold their hands in a "palms down" position without discomfort or pain) requires a keyboard tenting angle greater than the 15° offered by the V3 and VIP3 accessories. The Ascent Accessory allows the left and right modules of the Freestyle2 Keyboard to be tented independently of each other, in 10° increments from 20° to 90°.
Users who choose this solution must be touch typists (as they will be unable to see the keys). It is also strongly recommended that they have arm support while typing to avoid straining the muscles of the shoulders and upper back. Arm support is especially important at higher degrees of elevation.
The Ascent Accessory can be used with Palm Supports (sold separately) at angles up to 40°. The 20" separation cable is typically recommended for this accessory as it provides the recommended flexibility. An optional linking plate (included with the Ascent Accessory Kit) may be used if desired to connect the two tenting modules for increased stability.
