Connectivity is crucial these days, whether you’re a professional or a student, you’ll need to use a computer to accomplish various tasks. People who have desk jobs, like most of us, or even those who just spend a lot of time working away on their computers often complain of being uncomfortable in their workplaces. According to a survey conducted by Microsoft, 85 percent of workers in the U.S. have these complaints, globally the figure is said to be at 89 percent. In a bid to solve this major problem and to make people more productive, Microsoft today announced its Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop. In this post we’ll focus on the Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard and how it hopes to keep you productive while you’re typing.
Microsoft touts the “modern” and ergonomic design of this keyboard, claiming that it “sets the standard” for support and comfort. The design helps the user keep their hands and arms in a relaxed position, thus allowing them to work for longer periods of time without getting uncomfortable or developing soreness. The keyboard has a cushioned palm rest that prevents repetitive stress injuries and inflammation, the split layout aids in keeping wrists and palms in a relaxed position. Furthermore, the domed shape of this keyboard helps reduce and correct excessive wrist pronation which can cause pain. Keys are laid out in a natural arc which follows the curve of the fingertips, allowing for a more natural way of typing.
