Features

All refurbished units are thoroughly factory tested, inspected and cleaned. Refurbished units are backed by the same 2 year limited warranty offered with our new models.

Sleek, low-profile design
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 a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.

Accommodates a wide range of individuals
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.

Low-force, tactile key switches
The Freestyle2 utilizes low-force, membrane key switches featuring tactile feedback for optimal ergonomics. Activating the Freestyle2 keys requires 25% less force (45g) than the Microsoft Natural (60g) and many other ergonomic keyboards. These custom membrane style switches are super quiet and offer tactile feedback to discourage “bottoming out” on each key stroke.

2-Port 2.0 USB hub
The 2-port 2.0 USB hub enables you to easily connect other input devices such as mice without having to access USB ports on your computer.

Left side driverless hot keys
Driverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Beginning of Line, End of Line,Cut, Undo, Copy, Select All and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user

Standard key layout
Familiar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.

Optional palm supports
Optional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.
