Evoluent Mouse Friendly Compact Keyboard - Detailed Specification Page

Product Summary

The Evoluent Mouse-Friendly Keyboard has a more sensible layout with the numeric keypad on the left so your mouse may be much closer on the right. This allows your mouse to be directly in front of your shoulder. Your arm is in a relaxed neutral position when using the mouse.The general layout of the standard keyboard was designed before the introduction of the mouse. Since number entry was one of the primary functions of the keyboard at that time, having the numeric keypad on the right side made sense. Now, most users use the mouse far more than the numeric keypad, so the keypad now occupies the space where the mouse should be.
