Made by the Comfort Keyboard Company, Comfort Keyboards are highly adjustable ergonomic tools meant to give any typist the freedom to ditch his old, flat, non-ergonomic keyboard and try out something completely customizable. By these terms, "comfort" means full adjustability and articulation. These keyboards are ergonomically designed to conform to each user's unique posture, height, and set of preferences.

A Comfort Keyboard is built with three separate typing sections. The first section consists of the left hand side of a regular keyboard (that which traditionally contains the letters "A," "S," "D," "F," and "G"); the second consists of the right side (traditionally containing the letters "H," "J," "K," "L," and the semi-colon); the third consists of a normal, functional numeric keypad. These three sections are set upon a "tri-dimensional" base that can tilt, bend, rotate, swivel and twist into a variety of different positions. All Comfort Keyboards contain 105 keys each and are designed with the standard 101 QWERTY layout.

Because they are so adjustable, Comfort Keyboards allow the user to place the keys in a healthy, ergonomic position. The sections can be placed as near or as far apart as they need to be and can be adjusted to a user-specific shoulder-width and wrist angle. If an individual is left-handed, he also has the option of placing the numeric keypad in the center area (between the regular keyboard sections) or moving it completely to the left side.

A Note about Comfort Keyboards and System Compatibility

The Comfort Keyboard System (CKS) supports PS/2, Mac ADB, SUN Type 6 and HP-HIL connectors and is compatible with USB-enabled IBM-PC, Macintosh, and SUN systems, including all Mac OSX operating systems. Comfort keyboards have built-in flash memory cards that are used to save programmed features and do not rely on the computer's memory or storage space. They also have default PC Windows keys, while the same keyboards also offer Macintosh users the Apple, Option, and Power Key buttons as well.
