MAIN POINTS;   The new Advantage2 features our patented Contoured keyboard design and low-force mechanical key switches to address the major risk factors associated with keyboarding for maximum comfort. With the all-new SmartSet Programming Engine, Advantage2 features powerful programming tools designed to let you customize the keyboard to boost your productivity.

MORE INFORMATION:   Separate thumb keypads include often used keys such as Enter, Space, Backspace, Delete and the combination keys, Control and Alt on the PC (Command and Option on the Macintosh).

Separate key wells for each hand minimize strain and stretching by positioning your arms approximately at shoulder width and with wrists straight. This design reduces abduction and ulnar deviation (common symptoms experienced with repetitive strain injuries).Concave key wells reduce hand and finger extension by accommodating the various lengths of your fingers and placing your hands and fingers in a more relaxed and neutral position.

Vertical key layout means keys are arranged in vertical columns to reflect natural motions of your fingers, and the keypads are sculpted and concave to fit the varying lengths of your fingers. Closer placement of function keys to the alphanumeric keys reduces awkward motions and stretches.

20° lateral tilt design places your hands so that your thumbs are positioned approximately 20° higher than pinky fingers.

Integral palm support with optional self-adhesive pads enhances comfort and reduces stressful extension of your wrist providing a place to rest your hands while they are not actively keying.

Embedded 10-key layout. Key re-mapping.

Optional foot switches are also available.

Game changer. Every dev would own one if they weren't so expensive

I bought one 3 years ago, definitely worth the investment. The only thing missing is more layout options. I've switched to Colemak when I bought it and I will never look back.
