Sleek, low profile designMost keyboards including ergonomic models have a 10 degree positive slope from front to back. These designs tend to bend your wrists. The Freestyle2 has a zero degree slope which minimizes the height, effectively creating negative slope and reducing wrist extension. The slim design provides you a 2-in-1 office and travel keyboard.
Accommodates a wide range of individualsFrom small to tall and body types in between, the Freestyle2 allows for maximum flexibility catering to each individual’s unique needs. Out of the box both modules are connected together by a flexible pivot tether allowing an infinite range of splay. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Perfect for individual needs ranging from a narrow footprint to complete separation. This design greatly reduces and or/eliminates ulnar deviation.
Optional palm supportsOptional padded palm supports reduce wrist extension by keeping wrists neutral.
Driverless hot keysDriverless hot keys for commonly used mouse actions. (Internet Page Forward and Back, Undo, Web Home, Cut, Copy and Paste). A vertical rib is located on the inside row of hot keys to provide tactile notification to the user.
Familiar key layoutFamiliar key layout provides for minimal adaptation time.
Low-force, tactile key switchesThe Freestyle2 utilizes a quiet, low-force, tactile membrane key switch. The typical average maximum key force of a switch is 45 grams. This is at least 25% less than most traditional and many ergonomic keyboards such as the Microsoft 4000 with maximum key forces of over 60 grams.

I use my Freestyle2 with Mac for email, document writing, OS keyboard shortcuts etc. I type a lot and can get stiff hands and sore shoulders if I use a standard keyboard for extended periods of time.
Prior to switching to the Freestyle2 I used a Microsoft ergonomic keyboards and an Apple wireless keyboard. Typing on the Freestyle2 feels more natural than a standard keyboard and it’s a great compliment to my standing desk. It took me no time at all to get acclimated.
I would recommend the Freestyle2 to anyone who spends more than 3 hours a day in front of a computer.

I use my Freestyle2 for word-processing, coding, email, & browsing. I had a mechanical keyboard at a previous workstation and I missed the comfort and speed. I also looked at Goldtouch keyboards but the real selling point for the Freestyle2 was the ability to have a completely split keyboard.
I recently upgraded to a treadmill desk so it didn’t make any sense for me to use a conventional keyboard which would squish my shoulders together as I walked. Now I walk and type with perfect posture :).
It took less than 5 minutes to get acclimated to the Freestyle2 and I was already typing faster on the Freestyle2 than on my Macbook keyboard (90+ WPM versus 78 WPM). And the comfort is unreal. I have recommended the Freestyle2 to a few of my friends and they’ve had great responses as well.
