In many ways, a keyboard support is the heart of an ergonomic workstation. As reach and vision drive posture, our keyboard tray allows the user to sit in a healthy, neutral posture through bringing the keyboard and mouse to the user in an ergonomic position.


A well-designed keyboard tray offers protection from carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain and other musculoskeletal issues. Since 1999, Humanscale has been the leading manufacturer of under desk keyboard systems and today sells more than all other manufacturers combined.



   

What  Dr. Alan Hedge says

"A decade of ergonomic research shows that using a negative sloped adjustable keyboard tray maximises the time spent working in a neutral hand, wrist and upper body postures.  These postural benefits can’t be achieved by just using a keyboard on a height-adjustable work surface."

Effortless Use

Humanscale patented keyboard systems have effortless height and angle adjustment.  Promoting negative tilt keying, the keyboard platforms will not go into a positive tilt.

   

Durability

Humanscale keyboard trays are solidly anchored to any work surface, and shape to specific user needs.  Hypoallergenic Gel palm supports offer height and durability, and are designed to be compatible with human skin.

Customization

Humanscale offers three negative-tilt keyboard systems, from 5G to our latest 6G, which combines easy dial-a-tilt and height adjustability with the strongest, most stable arm on the market.  Humanscale's under desk keyboard trays come in many different configurations, including left/right customisation, to support any user need.




  

 


Design Story

An ergonomically designed keyboard is essential for every workstation. Ergonomists agree that the healthiest typing posture is one that allows the wrists to maintain a neutral or slightly pronated posture – straight or bent at a slightly downward angle. For that reason, Humanscale designers created our under desk keyboard trays, which allow the keyboard to be ergonomically positioned anywhere from 0 degrees to a -15 degree angle.
