Product Information

As the market leader in computer ergonomics, Kinesis has been designing and building premium-grade ergonomic keyboards for more than 25 years. 

The Advantage2 keyboard convinces with its unusual Contoured keyboard design. This patented idea provides wells for the keys, so the fingers do not have to reach up for typing. They can really just rest in a most natural position, as if they rested in the lap. This way, ulnar deviation and forearm pronation are reduced and  you can work in a healthy manner. We call it Body Centered Working.
This version of the Advantage 2 comes with a special layout for both QWERTY and DVORAK. You can easily switch between them as the labels on the keys provide both. It is perfect for Dvorak users and those who want to be.

Kinesis has equipped the Advantage2 keyboard with low-force Cherry MX Brown tactile mechanical key switches for high-end usability and maximum comfort. The signature home row keys come in Kinesis Blue. 
The all-new SmartSetTM Programming Engine is a powerful programming tool to customize the keyboard to your needs. Boost your productivity! 

Next to the standard US layout, Kinesis offers layouts for German, Swedish, Japanese and the UK. 

Ergonomic Features

Created with Sketch.
  • Thumb Keys: Use stronger thumbs rather than weaker pinkies to access heavily used keys like Space, Backspace, and Enter.
  • Vertical Keys: Orthogonal key arrangement mirrors the natural motion of your fingers to increase speed and comfort.
  • Fixed Split: Hands are positioned at shoulder-width to keep wrists straight and reduce ulnar deviation.
  • 20 Degree Tenting: Tenting elevates the thumb side of the hand to reduce forearm pronation caused by flat keyboards.
  • Concave Key Wells: Hands and fingers are placed in a natural, relaxed position to shorten key-reach and reduce over-extension.
  • Sculpted Home Row: Find the home row without taking your eyes off the screen with sculpted home row keycaps.
  • Compact Design: Tenkeyless layout with embedded keypad results in a smaller footprint for closer mouse placement.
  • Palm Supports: Integrated palm supports and cushioned palm pads promote neutral wrist position reducing harmful wrist extension.
