Features - Kinesis Freestyle2 for PC Keyboard
Sleek, low profile design
Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.
Accommodates a wide range of individuals
From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and or/eliminates ulnar deviation.
Optional palm supports
Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.
Driverless hot keys
Driverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Undo, Web Home, Cut, Copy and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user.
Low-force, tactile key switches
The Freestyle2 utilizes a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch. The typical average maximum key force of a switch is 45 grams. This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.
Pre-assembled VIP3 and V3 versions
For the utmost in convenience the Freestyle2 can be purchased with either the VIP3 (KB820HMB-us) or V3 (KB830HMB-us) accessory pre-installed onto the Freestyle2 keyboard. To do so, in the dropdown menu for Separation choose 9″ and under Options choose either Pre-assembled with V3 or VIP3.
