The Posturite Number Slide Compact Keyboard helps to reduce the risks associated with overreaching for the mouse without sacrificing the convenience of an integrated numeric keypad. Housed within the body of the keyboard, the numeric keypad remains tucked out of the way until needed, allowing individuals to keep the mouse closer within the Comfort Zone when the numeric keypad is not in use. When extensive numeric entry is required the number pad is easily extended and is just as easily stored away again when no longer needed.
The keyboard features scissor-switch keyswitches with chiclet (or island-style) key caps. At 19 mm, the key pitch (i.e. the distance from the left edge of one key to the left edge of the adjacent key) is the same as the key pitch on a standard-sized keyboard, therefore requiring no learning curve. The keyboard is also equipped with two USB ports and has BioCote® antimicrobial product protection incorporated into the materials. At only 11.6" wide (with numeric keypad retracted) and 15.3" (with keypad extended) the keyboard is well suited to mobile applications or to occasional use in confined spaces.
Two models are available: a standard wired version, and a rechargeable Bluetooth version. The wired model is compatible with all versions of Windows, and Windows Mobile. The Bluetooth version adds support for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
Reduces Risk of Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist Strain
- To access the mouse when using a traditional keyboard with a built-in number pad, typists must reach from the home row, over the navigation keys, and then over the number pad. This repeated extension of the arm at the shoulder can place considerable strain on the muscles of the upper body on the mousing side. The storable number pad lets the mouse be positioned as close as possible when the pad is not required, and, because the pad has a minimal footprint even when extended, still positioned within the Comfort Zone.

Reduces Risk of Wrist Pain
- The relatively low profile of the Number Slide Compact Keyboard minimizes the unhealthy, upward bend at the wrist known as wrist extension. Learn More About Wrist Extension.
Adding a low profile SAMA Palm Support
can reduce the bend to almost nil, virtually eliminating any wrist extension.
Regardless of the devices in use, wrist extension cannot be prevented if the work surface is either too high, or too low.
Learn More About Improper Work Surface Height.
- Compact but Full Featured: While the Number Slide Compact Keyboard has a compact footprint that is ideal when desiring to reduce reaching on the right side, when the time comes for intense numeric data entry, it also offers full functionality using the hidden storable numeric keypad.
- Storable Numeric Keypad: The 17-key numeric keypad stores within the keyboard when not required, permitting the mouse to be brought in to eliminate unnecessary reaching.
- Portable: The compact dimensions and light weight of the Number Slide Compact Keyboard make it a good solution for a travel device, especially if there may be a requirement for larger amounts of numeric data entry.
- Wired or Bluetooth Options: The Number Slide Compact Keyboard comes in both a standard USB wired version as well as a Bluetooth model for cordless convenience, even on iOS and Android mobile devices.
- Anti-Microbial Protection: BioCote® antimicrobial product protection is incorporated into the materials to aid in reducing disease transmission.
- Dual-Port USB Hub (corded model only): The corded model includes a convenient usb hub for connection of low power devices such as memory sticks or a mouse.
