The R-Go Numpad Break from R-Go Tools is an ideal matching companion for the R-Go Compact Break Ergonomic Keyboard as it is can plug directly into the keyboard's supplementary USB-C port using a convenient 12" cord. Of course, it can also be used as a stand-alone numeric keypad with any keyboard, by using the included USB-C to USB-A converter and either the 12" or 59" cords.
The R-Go Numpad Break is equipped with low-travel scissor switch membrane key switches, resulting in an exceptionally thin (9 mm) profile that greatly reduces the potential of developing RSI related to wrist extension. The chiclet-style keycaps offer clear separation between keys to help ensure accurate data entry. The low profile and the light weight of just 96 grams also make this keypad an ideal laptop add-on. As a bonus feature the integrated calculator key can switch from data entry to the Windows calculator with a single keystroke.
Reduces Wrist Extension
- The completely flat, exceptionally low 9 millimetre profile of the R-Go Numpad Break creates a neutral 0° slope that helps to reduce wrist (and finger) extension when using this keypad. Learn More About Wrist Extension
Helps Reduce Over-Reaching
- Because the R-Go Numpad Break can be set aside with ease, typists are able to bring their mouse in close when the numeric keypad is not required. This reduces the risks associated with repetitively reaching across extra space when switching between keyboard and mouse. Learn More About the Comfort Zone.
Optimizes the Workstation
- As a standalone device, the R-Go Numpad Break is equally suited to left- and right-handed individuals, as well as to anyone who wants to balance the load by switching hands. The device can be positioned wherever it best addresses the ergonomic needs and work habits. When it is not in use, it can be moved out of the way to free up space in the Comfort Zone for a mouse or other frequently used device.
Break Reminders Can Reduce RSI Risk
- The downloadable Break software monitors usage and uses the familiar Green, Yellow and Red to illuminate the R-Go logo, notifying typists of when they should be taking breaks.
- Familiar Key Layout: The R-Go Numpad break duplicates all standard numeric keypad functions, meaning there is no adaptation period.
- Windows Calculator Access: The R-Go Numpad Break can switch from data entry to accessing the windows calculator with a single keystroke. This is ideal for when quick calculations need to be made mid-stream durng data entry.
- Sleek, Ultra-Low Profile Design: The R-Go Numpad Break features a substantially thinner design than most numeric keypads, with a height of only 0.35".
- Exceptionally Portable: The R-Go Numpad Break weighs just 96 grams. With this minimal weight and the 9 mm high profile, this keypad is ideal for use with a laptop.
- Optional Break Reminder Software: Typists can download and install the Break software to monitor their usage. The software offers a visual indication of when breaks should be taken by changing the colour of the illuminated logo between Green, Yellow, and Red.
- Dual Cable Options: The R-Go Numpad Break comes with both 12" and 59" cables and a USB C to USB A Converter. The cables are USB-C for connection to newer devices that may not have full-size USB-A ports and, with the included converter, equally functional with full-size USB-A.

- Make sure your keyboard and numpad are properly positioned. Sit in your usual position at your desk and let your shoulders relax. Your elbows should be positioned almost directly below your shoulders when your hands are in position on the keyboard. The line from the forearm, through the wrist and into the hand should be almost straight. If you find that your elbows are moving too far forward when using the keyboard you are either sitting too far away or the desk may be too high for you. Addressing the former is simple, just move closer. However, addressing the latter may require either elevating your seat and adding a footrest, or adding a keyboard tray to bring the keyboard down to the necessary height. Working with the elbows too far forward exerts undue strain on the shoulders and can lead to discomfort, pain or even disabling pain.
- When doing periods of extended numeric entry reposition your keyboard and numpad so that when your hand is resting on the numpad it is comfortably positioned in front of your shoulder, rather than to the right or left. This will reduce strain on the shoulder.
- If you use your numpad on the same side as your mouse make a point of setting it aside and bringing your mouse in closer if there are periods when limited numeric entry can be done on the keyboard.
- Learn to use the R-Go Numpad Break with both hands. Load-spreading in this fashion will reduce the risk of developing painful RSI that can arise from overworking just one hand.
- Install the Break software and learn to monitor your usage based on the colour-changing logo. Make a point of taking regular breaks to stretch and move about, both of which are important in maintaining your overall health.
