EKB-No number pad lets mouse get closer

No number pad lets mouse get closer

The numeric keys on the right side of a full size keyboard makes the mouse sit too far away and your right arm too extended. Eliminating the right side numeric keys not only saves space, your mouse can get closer so your arm is more relaxed.

EKB-Tactile bumps facilitate touch typing

Tactile bumps facilitate touch typing

Tiny bumps on selected keys facilitate touch typing without looking and reduces frequent corrections. Other keyboards have bumps only on the F and J keys.

EKB-Full size arrow and F1-F12 keys

Full size arrow and F1-F12 keys

The arrow, F1-F12, PgUp and PgDn keys are full sized, unlike most other compact keyboards which have those keys in smaller than standard sizes.

EKB-Extremely low profile aids comfort

Extremely low profile aids comfort

The back edge is not tilted up so the entire keyboard is fully flat to eliminate the need to strain your hands upward. The key tops are only 1 cm or 0.4″ off the top of the desk to further reduce wrist strain.

EKB-Twelve one-touch hotkeys

Hotkeys provide one touch operation for Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Web, E-mail, Computer, Mute, Volume Down, Volume Up, Sleep, and Turn Off.

EKB-High quality scissor keys
