I first got one of these keyboards in 1997 after having had problems with wrist and elbow pain. The angle of the keys allows for a more natural angle from forearm to wrist and takes some of the stress off, reducing the occurrence of repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and lateral epicondilitis. Some of the OEM versions only support PS2 or USB connection, not both...this retail model has the requisite pigtail cable to work with both interfaces. You can use it with either a desktop with PS2 connector or a new laptop which doesn't even have one.

For many years now, the only keyboard I keep going back to is of course the original Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite. Its ergonomic design helps with those long hours writing research papers and the like. With ordinary keyboards, especially the ones on labtops, I just can't stand the fact that I have to be in an uncomfortable position. This keyboard has allowed me to relax by providing a lift, spliting the keys apart in half to allow less bending of the arms. Unfortunately, I've had to spend more than what it's worth on this keyboard. Even throughout the many years that I've used this keyboard in its multiple incarnations, the price hardly ever decreases. This is apparent especially when you want a barebones, no frills ergonomic keyboard without any sort of multimedia buttons or other features I never use. Good keyboard, needs a lower price.
