The Maltron Dual Hand 2D Keyboard or finger friendly keyboard offers two key groups for letters, with a central number group to keep wrists straight and strain free. Central numbers suit both left & right handers. The letter keys are angled inwards to match natural finger movements and, as in the 3D two-handed design, the keys for the longer fingers are further away to reduce finger motion and provide small therapeutic actions. Large palm pads give a comfortable resting and relaxing zone for hands and arms during “thinking time”, to encourage blood flow and recovery.
The Maltron flat keyboard is available in 89 and 90 series. The 89 is more suited to those who have used a Maltron 89 series keyboard before. If you are a new Maltron keyboard user, we would recommend a 90 series keyboard. 89 series keyboards are available with a PS/2 or USB connector, while the 90-series are only available with USB.
90 series keyboards are an updated layout design from the older 89 design, and are recommended for new Maltron users as the layout most closely resembles the conventional keyboard you will be familiar with. 90 series keyboards are only available with a USB connector. Number positions are more like the conventional flat keyboard you will know, except for the escape key which is in the central number area.
89 series keyboards have an older layout design. They are recommended for those who have used an 89 series Maltron keyboard before and wish to avoid learning the slightly different layout of a 90 series keyboard. The 89 series was optionally available with a PS/2 connector (known as J89) or USB connector (known as L89). It is now only available with USB. If you have one of our earlier keyboards it is most likely that it has layout-89.
