Work was supposed to be made easier by computer systems. Until recently, all computers are still using keyboards as the primary input device; ranging from office computers to complex industrial automation systems.

The problem with that we are all different in terms of height, torso length, arm length. Keyboard manufacturers then realize the need for ergonomic keyboards and customizable ergonomic keyboard arms (amongst other related equipment such as ergonomic monitors, ergonomic back chair support etc.)

What is an Ergonomic Keyboard Arm?

An ergonomic keyboard arm is a specially designed support extension used to hold a computer keyboard. It is a movable arm designed to allow the user have a good posture while using the keyboard. This helps to avoid injury to back muscles and tendons caused by continuous typing.

Ergonomic keyboard arms probably came into existence when manufacturers were trying to figure out how can they make the ergonomic keyboard tray more flexible and adjustable.

Instead of having a fixed "drawer" like all keyboard trays, the ergonomic keyboard arm can adjust the keyboard position to left right, up and down. This is especially useful if you decide to rearrange your desk and move the height of your monitor.

At the end of the day, using a keyboard arm will contribute to a productive day at work with less fatigue and strain.

Buying an Ergonomic Keyboard Arm

Keyboard arms come with different levels of flexibility and modes of rotation. Some arms can rotate at any angle, tilt and be adjustable to suit all sorts of typing conditions and keyboards.

How flexible and adjustable should the ergonomic keyboard arm be?

That depends on a few factors, how many people will be using it, whether you will be shifting your monitor alot (for example if you are using a laptop decking station) or installing more than one monitor.

The more people per workstation, the more flexible it should be. Same goes if you require some shifting of the monitor at work.

The choice of a suitable keyboard arm should be in line with the mechanism under which your hardware is stored and functions.

For instance, if your workstation needs constant movement, then it means your keyboard arm should give you maximum flexibility. buy a keyboard arm

Where to buy an keyboard arm?

While Online stores such as will offer more competitive rates, offline stores that sell computer accessories will offer support on how to install. Speaking to a sales rep who is experienced in selling keyboard arms equipment is also able to advise you personally based on what workstation you have.

When searching for an Articulating Keyboard Platform, consider cost but don't compromise on comfort. While all ergonomic keyboard arms are designed for comfort, not all such keyboards will be suitable for every working condition. It is important to first analyze your working environment and needs before purchasing one. Read some product reviews and go to a store to test it out before buying, if you can.
