The ergonomic KBPC E keyboard from Fujitsu Siemens Computers sets new ergonomic standards at the workplace. The knowledge gleaned from exhaustive ergonomic studies has facilitated optimum compliance with individual physiological and anatomical requirements and user preferences.¤¤The KBPC E promotes the natural positioning of the user's arms and hands, for fatigue-free use. The alphanumeric keypad splits into two halves, angled at up to 30° to each other, plus the lateral pitch of up to 16°. The keyboard allows a front-to-back inclination of either 6° or 12°. This allows the hands to fall into a natural posture, reducing strain on the hand-arm-shoulder system. The matching wrist pad provides optimum support; even where the lateral angle employed is great.¤¤Upgrading from standard keyboards to the KBPC E is simplicity itself. For one thing the MF-compatible key layout has been retained, whilst the angle adjustment features three levels. A compact keyboard can thus be turned, step-by step, into a keyboard ergonomically optimized to suit individual requirements.
