Science-Driven, Ultra-Comfortable, Ergonomic Split Keyboard Offers Wrist and Forearm Support
LAUSANNE, Switzerland and NEWARK, Calif. — Jan. 15, 2020 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech ERGO K860 Ergonomic Split Keyboard, an advanced ergonomic split keyboard that delivers a more natural typing experience to work more productively. Offering greater wrist support and reduced muscle activity, the ERGO K860 promotes a more relaxed typing posture to allow users to work comfortably at their desk.
“We know that most people spend between a quarter and a third of their lives at work, so it is important they stay comfortable while they’re at it. We created a science-driven ergonomic keyboard to help office workers improve their posture, increase comfort and lower muscle strain,” said Lars Holm Lauridsen, senior global product manager at Logitech. “ERGO K860 is designed, developed and tested with criteria set out by leading ergonomists, resulting in a typing experience that does not compromise your productivity.”
The curved wrist rest with pillowed cushioning places your forearms just above the keyboard, offering 54% more wrist support and reducing wrist bending by 25%. The adjustable palm lift feature keeps your wrists in a natural posture, whether you’re seated or standing. ERGO K860 is certified by United States Ergonomics and has been tested and rated for a 10 million keystroke lifespan.
Type with confidence on a curved keyframe using Logitech’s Perfect Stroke key system, designed for comfort, precision and fluidity. User-friendly online onboarding, including ergonomic workstation tips, makes setting up ERGO K860 a snap on Mac or PC platforms. Choose to connect via Bluetooth® Low Energy or the USB dongle.
The ERGO K860 follows your Logitech Flow™-enabled mouse, such as the Logitech MX VERTICAL Advanced Ergonomic Mouse, from one computer to another, so you can type on multiple devices in one fluid workflow when using Logitech Options software. Controlling multiple computers from one keyboard and mouse can improve your ergonomic setup by preventing strain caused by unnecessary physical movements.
