Over 3,000 keyboard users have now successfully used a standard Maltron dual hand keyboard to recover from keyboard induced pain. However, there have been a few sufferers who have declared that the Maltron 3D design is just too radical, or “unfriendly looking”.
The new Maltron Dual Hand Flat Keyboard responds to this view and incorporates key features of the existing design but in a more conventional shape. Two key groups for letters with a central number group, as before, keep wrists straight and strain free. Central numbers suit both left & right handers. The keys are angled inwards to match natural finger movements and the keys for the longer fingers are further away. Large palm pads give a comfortable resting zone for hands and arms to encourage blood flow and recovery.
You will find that the 2D keyboard is a great compromise between conventional keyboards and the Maltron “3D” fully models. They can be described as a true comfort keyboard. While the 3D keyboards offer the ultimate in comfort and efficiency, they require a few weeks to become familiar with. The Maltron Flat keyboard requires no special training and you will be amazed at how comfortable and easy to use it is!.
This keyboard is available with a choice of features such as colour, key layout and PC or Apple Mac compatibility. Of course, if you’re not sure, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
- Split design eliminates wrist twist and allows a central number cluster which can be used by right or left hand as preferred.

- Straight vertical key columns eliminate tens of thousands of finger and wrist twists in a day’s work.
