Truly Ergonomic is a Canadian company with two products - a fully functional keyboard and a dedicated numpad. Between these, they aim to enhance workplace health by offering products as a result of years of research and development. This is telling in that they are confident about their two products and stand by them, which I can appreciate. The product they are most well known for is The Truly Ergonomic Keyboard, and it is this article's subject. Thanks a lot to them for providing the sample for review.
The Truly Ergonomic Keyboard is a very novel product in that it features the functionality of a tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard in a form factor that is on par with some 60% keyboards. This allows for the use of a mouse closer to your body and thus helps combat repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome, along with other muscle and joint pain issues. It does this with ergonomics and kinesiology accounted for, and there are a few more features we will get to soon.
