The Best Ergonomic Keyboard for You
CR's testers reviewed eight popular models. Here's what we learned.
A few years ago, Caitlin Cadieux decided to go all-out to battle the chronic pain in her right wrist—a malady she attributed to the many long hours devoted to her work as a digital animator.
She got a standing desk. A better chair. Did physical therapy. Was more mindful of taking breaks throughout the day. She also bought an ergonomic keyboard—the Microsoft Sculpt—designed to alleviate the wear and tear on her body. It won her over.
“Going back to a different keyboard is a non-starter for me,” says the 29-year-old Troy, N.Y., resident. “I still get pain if I spend too much contiguous time typing, but sitting at the keyboard is much less stressful on my arm. If something happened to it, I'd buy another Sculpt in a heartbeat.”
