A lot of computer users suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome due to extensive use of mice and keyboards for extensive time periods. To fight this Spire introduced the Curvature Ergonomic Keyboard (SP-K4003-USB) in their line or ergonomic products.

This isn’t a keyboard designed for the average gamer, but rather the everyday computer user. The special curved and arched shape of this keyboard should give your arms a more natural position and let your wrists relax while typing. Being a USB keyboard, it is compatible with devices that can handle this from Windows to Mac, everything in between, and comes with media keys as one of the extra features.

    It looks like it’s been left out in the sun too long.

    I used a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic keyboard just like this one for years. It was very comfortable to type on for long periods — ideal for writing essays and creative writing. However, once I got a laptop I had to adapt to a traditional keyboard and I found it difficult to switch between the two — it screwed up my speed and accuracy. Since the majority of keyboards out their are the straight design, and you can’t dictate what keyboard you use in the workplace, I abandoned the ergonomic keyboard. It’s been at least 5 years and I still type a lot, but I don’t suffer from any repetitive strain issues.

    Ergonomic keyboards are just a trend IMO. Perhaps they help dinosaurs who crippled themselves using typewriters eons ago, but in my experience they aren’t necessary.

      Wow, that’s a damning statement! I have MS which affects me with fatigue as well as some sensory issues in my hands. I too have used both, but would totally recommend a curved ergonomic keyboard for comfort, especially for prolonged use. If you have no RSI problems, then use whatever feels best. Otherwise, a fully ergonomic keyboard provides good support for the wrists and allows a natural position for the forearm. It is a good idea!
