Penclic Debuts Ergonomic Mini Keyboard

With the release of its Mini Keyboard, Penclic, the Swedish company best known for its ergonomic re-think of the computer mouse, goes on to address the second most important cause for computer-related injuries: poor keyboard design.

Injuries caused by prolonged and repetitive use of computer keyboards and mice are very real and widely recognised health problems. Perhaps lesser known, is that women are three times more likely than men to develop and suffer such injuries. And a chief reason for this is poorly designed computer peripherals, unsuitable – even harmful – for most women users. As Marianne Ahlberg, physiotherapist with 30 years' ergonomic expertise sums it up:

"The design of today's peripheral computer devices is not entirely optimal for women. Keyboards are generally made too wide, requiring women to work outside the span of their shoulders, while most computer mice add unnecessary muscle strain due to their weight."
