Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.

From small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and or/eliminates ulnar deviation.

Featuring simple, sturdy adjustment mechanisms the Freestyle is intuitive to configure and use. Interchangeable accessories provide features never before available from just one keyboard design – the Freestyle Solo™. Two optional accessory packages, the Freestyle Incline™ and Freestyle VIP™ can be purchased to provide additional capabilities. These three configurations allow the user to choose features that offer complete separation and/or adjustable front splay, adjustable or fixed tenting, plus integrated and removable, padded palm supports.

Other unique features of the Solo keyboard include driverless hot keys for mouse intensive actions, an embedded 10-key, low-profile design to promote neutral wrist posture, a Pivot Tether™ connecting the two keying modules together and quiet, tactile key switches.
