Ergonomic Computer Keyboard Trays

ergonomic computer keyboard trays

Though Ergonomic Computer Keyboard Trays aren't the most popular item in one's list of ergonomic computer furniture, some ergonomic experts say that an ergonomic keyboard tray is the second most important component of an ergonomic workstation. (Ergonomic computer chair being the first.)


Ergonomic Computer Keyboard trays help align your arms in the ideal ergonomic posture - a right angle (90 degrees) when tapping away on your keyboard.

Most desks are too 'high' or too 'tall' for users anyway, and the usual way to adjust it by adjusting the height of your chair.

Ergonomic keyboard trays are more "something your keyboard rests on". Some ergonomic keyboard trays have adjustable heights, keyboard tilting features, a mouse house (which I think is very important), wrists and palm rests, slip and slide features etc.

One Last Note about The Ergonomic Keyboard Tray

When adjusting work surfaces to make them more ergonomic, be careful that your sitting position at your desk is not compromised by a poorly attached computer keyboard such that it comes into contact with your thighs.

This is so especially when you raise your chair to achieve the correct angles. (See Ergonomic Pictures.)

Sometimes this limiting feature causes the user to sit too low at their desks.

Just something to keep in mind when buying a computer desk that already has the underlying keyboard tray.
