Suggested by Azteca in the poll: Truly Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard
Ergonomic and Space Efficient
The Truly Ergonomic Keyboard Model 209 (TEK) is a first-class keyboard designed to provide an exceptionally comfortable typing experience, and is manufactured using Cherry Key switches. Brown, Red, and Blue switches are all available as options during checkout.

The TEK is a critical upgrade from traditional keyboard designs. For well over a century, keyboards have been based on the 'rows of staggered keys' arrangement introduced in typewriters in the 1860s. Improving on that, the TEK is symmetric and features a unique linear, non-staggered, split-symmetric columnar key arrangement that aligns effortlessly with the user.

Tools for Your Health
We have designed the TEK for comfort and productivity. It has been developed specifically to reduce pain and avoid injuries caused by typing, and its revolutionary key layout improves typing efficiency. The TEK also helps diminish the risk of work-related conditions like CTS, RSI, and tendonitis, and its compact design helps reduce strain caused by stretching for the mouse.

The TEK design follows the symmetric shape and neutral position of the human body. Promotes a healthier posture helping to reduce wrist, shoulder, neck, and lower back pain and strains, and allows you to become more efficient and accelerate your productivity in a comfortable and healthy manner.
