The V3 Accessory Kit adds a tenting option of 5°, 10°, or 15° to the Freestyle2 Keyboard. These configurations reduce pronation, allowing the user to move from a palms down typing posture to one where the underside of the palms are now slightly facing one another. This can significantly reduce the risk of fatigue, stiffness and pain in the wrists and forearms. Note: The Freestyle2 V3 Accessory Kit is only compatible with the Freestyle2 (KB8XX Series) and the Freestyle Solo (KB7XX Series). It is NOT compatible with the Freestyle PRO/Edge (KB9XX Series) or keyboards.
Note: Palm Supports are not included or compatible with this Accessory Kit. If palm supports are desired the Freestyle2 VIP3 Accessory Kit should be considered.
Reduces Pronation - The Freestyle2 V3 Accessory Kit tents the keyboard halves upward. This rotates the forearm away from the "prone" position necessary when using a keyboard that sits flat on the desk surface. Learn More About Pronation
Provides Tenting On Shallow Surfaces: The V3 Accessory Kit facilitates the tenting of the Freestyle2 at 5°, 10° and 15° on worksurfaces no deeper than required for the Freestyle2 Keyboard, i.e. 7.1"
Multi-Angle Tenting: The tenting modules can be adjusted to 5°, 10°, and 15° angles. Because they attach to the keyboard modules independently it is even possible to have the keyboard halves set at different elevation angles.
Bounce-free Design: The Freestyle2 V3 Accessory is designed to offer stability - even when typing at 15° of elevation.
Freely Adjustable: Angle and Splay can be adjusted independently for almost limitless adjustments. The V3 can even be used with the pivot tether in installed.

When attaching the V3 Tenting Modules be sure to match them to the appropriate keyboard halves. For ease of assembly the modules are marked as Left and Right.
Experiment with the different angles to determine what position is most comfortable. It is probably best to start at the 5° position while adapting to this new keyboard orientation, and then move on to the 10 and 15° angles.
Because the two modules are totally independent you are free to use different angles on each side. It also lets you easily adjust the splay (angle at which the two keyboard halves are aligned to each other) and separation of the keyboard to optimize "your" comfort. You will no longer have to force your body to conform to a fixed position that in non-ergonomic or that does not accommodate your body type or size.
