DesktopWeb FormText   brawn : treadmill desk keyboardTue, 21 Jul 2009 03:31:10 GMT # 

the ergotron keyboard mount had a -5 degree slope, along with a gel wrist rest, to keep your wrists straight. with the shelving desk, it felt a little like my wrists were bent too much. went to look at keyboards tonight and found the microsoft ergonomic keyboard (4000/7000). these stood out because they have a plastic attachment to provide a -7 degree slope (it also has a wrist rest). plus its split, which makes finding the home keys easier without having to look down. the split also lets me keep my elbows a little wider, which is more natural while walking. anyway, i think the negative slope is necessary when standing at a desk. its definitely helping to keep my wrists in a more neutral position. ... i still haven't figured out which pointing device to use. testing 3 trackballs, a standard mouse, and the natural mouse that came with the ergonomic 7000 set.
