Penclic says its Mini Keyboard, which is Mac compatible, was designed with women in mind.
Injuries caused by prolonged and repetitive use of computer keyboards and mice are very real and widely recognized health problems. Perhaps lesser known, is that women are three times more likely than men to develop and suffer such injuries, according to physiotherapist Marianne Ahlberg. A chief reason for this is poorly designed computer peripherals, unsuitable for most women users, she adds.
"The design of today’s peripheral computer devices is not entirely optimal for women," says Ahlberg "Keyboards are generally made too wide, requiring women to work outside the span of their shoulders, while most computer mice add unnecessary muscle strain due to their weight.”
Enter the Penclic Mini Keyboard, whose design incorporates the science community’s latest findings about gender-specific aspects of computer work to provide a keyboard that works just as well for women as for men. The narrowed down dimensions of the device facilitate an ergonomically correct working position that centers the keyboard in front of the user, allowing both arms to be aligned within the user’s shoulder width, according to the folks at Penclic.
The frame has also been made thinner -- just 6 mm -- than for most keyboards, reducing the need of slanting the wrists to a minimum.
The Penclic Mini Keyboard is equipped with normal-sized, "Quiet-touch" keys designed give a silent but firm response with measured resistance. The keyboard sports a matte, non-reflective tone, with contrasting colors for central function keys.
