The award-winning Freestyle Pro keyboard offers the same advanced ergonomic features of the Freestyle2 but with the additional benefits of full on-board programmability and low-force Cherry MX Brown mechanical key switches. Instantly switch between Windows, Mac and Dvorak layouts or create your own. The FS Pro makes programming a breeze with onboard shortcuts and the no-install SmartSet App. And with a standard 20″ linking cable everyone can find their comfort zone.
Zero degree slope form factor
As with the Freestyle2 the FS Pro retains a zero degree slope from front to back. Most keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The FS Pro’s zero degree slope decreases the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension.
Adjustable linking cable accommodates a wide range of users
The two key modules are connected by a 20 inch linking cable that can be adjusted to suit your preferences and body type. The basic configuration allows up to 12 inches of separation. If you need additional separation, simply remove the cable compartment cover located on the back of the left key module and thread out more of the stored cable until you find your desired width.
Standard key layout
Familiar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.
Optional tenting accessories
For people that are experiencing forearm discomfort two tenting accessories are available to reduce forearm pronation. The VIP3 Pro (with palm supports) and V3 Pro (without palm supports) attach easily to the underside of the Pro keyboard providing 3 easily adjustable slope settings of 5, 10 and 15 degrees.
Optional palm supports
Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.
Mechanical Key Switches
The Freestyle Pro (KB900-BRN model) utilizes the Cherry MX Brown stem low-force tactile key switches. “Tactility” is a slightly elevated force around the midpoint of the stroke of the key which lets you know the switch is about to be activated. A tactile response is preferred by many ergonomists, because it cues your fingers that activation is about to occur and can reduce the frequency of “bottoming out” the switch with a hard impact.
