Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!
Ergonomic keyboards, mice, etc. can help prevent repetitive strain injuries in individuals who spend a lot of time on a computer. If you are unfamiliar with a repetitive strain injury (or RSI), an RSI refers to damage to your muscles, tendons, or nerves caused by repetitive motions and constant use. One available ergonomic keyboard is the Logitech Comfort Wave Wireless Keyboard.
The Logitech Comfort Wave Wireless Keyboard is a keyboard that keeps individuals comfortable all day long. It combines a dynamic curved design with the familiarity of a straight keyboard. Users get the added benefit of a padded palm wrist and a wave-shaped keyframe in a “familiar keyboard layout and form factor.”
Other features include:
- Easily connects to the computer by inserting the USB receiver
- The unique wave design guides your hands into the best position and conforms naturally to your fingers—easy comfortable whisper-quiet typing without a learning curve
- A large cushioned palm rest helps position your hands properly on the keyboard and offers a comfortable place to rest them when not typing
- Pair up to 6 compatible peripherals through the same receiver using Logitech Unifying technology
- Get instant access to your music, calculator, email, and more with media control keys and 18 programmable keys
