"1: Kinesis Freestyle VIP
This is my own personal choice in keyboard. It's the Mac Daddy of ergo-keyboards. Not only has the keyboard been split in half, you can adjust the splay (the horizontal plane angle) to any degree of separation that the tether will allow. And with the addition of the VIP kit, you can adjust the tent of the keypads. The tent refers to the tilt of the keyboards. You can go from flat to roughly 10 to 15 degrees. You can even have each keypad at different tent angles and different splay angles.

"2: Kinesis Advantage and Advantage Pro
If you can pay the price for one of these keyboards ($359.00 for the Advantage Pro), your arms and wrists will thank you for it. So will your back, and your shoulders, and your neck... This keyboard forces you to use good habits. The keypads are on the outer edges of the physical keyboard and rest in a scooped-out hollow, forcing your hands to work in a near-perfect position."
