About this deal

Because there are no Function (F1, F2, …) keys on the Advantage Pro 360, the Esc key is moved to the CapsLock. The keyboard utilizes quiet, low-force keys that provide a 25% reduction in keying action over many other ergonomic keyboards.

The Kinesis keyboard differentiates itself from other split keyboards on the market, by allowing both sides of the keyboard to be separated, this design greatly reduces ulnar deviation. Tenting of the keyboard can be facilitated via 3 optional accessories and each side can be angled independently of the other. In this blog post, I will explain the significant design changes and my experiences with Advantage360. Please note: keyboard images show the US layout, with the line drawing showing the UK layout for reference. This kit also includes one set of V3 lifters, which make the split keyboard adjustable to 3 different degrees 5, 10 and 15.

I Feel this is an awesome topic for TTaran though, I remember he had battled with RSI, and he is very good at hands-on reviews! Because my Raycast/Alfred (finder applications) and the ESC key are on those keys, I immediately found it cumbersome.

With the all-new SmartSetTM Programming Engine, Advantage2 features powerful programming tools designed to let you customize the keyboard to boost your productivity. The guarantee is conditional in that it covers normal use and that misuse has not taken place and that the final decision rests with Online Ergonomics Ltd, their component and fabric suppliers. Ctrl + a means I press and hold the right " key (which triggers the right ctrl when holding) and the A key.Switching to keypad is pretty annoying, especially if you forget that you've done it and start trying to type normally. Disconnecting the pivot tether allows up to 9 inches of complete separation of both left and right keying modules. Separating the keywells positions the arms at shoulder-width to keep wrists straight and perpendicular to the home row to reduce abduction and ulnar deviation. The hot-keys on the left side of the Freestyle2 will only work with the specific operating system it was designed for.

Try connecting your Freestyle2 keyboard to another PC, as it might be an issue with the PC and not the keyboard. The integrated palm supports reduce stressful bending of the wrists (extension) and provide a convenient place to rest your hands when you are not actively typing. With time, you get customized to the Advantage360, but I think it's a step back from the Advantage2. Yes, it's not as easy as SmartSet to configure; however, it takes a couple of docs to read to understand what's happening. Self-adhesive, cushioned palm pads can be attached for extra comfort and the supports provide a comfortable surface to rest your hands when you are not typing or taking a rest.Before I can tell the main differences and the new features, I'll have to describe shortly how it all started.

I plan to use blank keycaps in the feature because, with all the customizations I made (more on this later), it doesn't make sense to use them.

The Advantage360 Pro comes with ZMK, an open-source firmware that allows you to customize every keycap.The key wells have been scooped into a concave shape which means hands and fingers are able to relax into a natural posture, curled down towards the keys. Typing with straight wrists is essential in avoiding injuries because it reduces abduction and ulnar deviation which can lead to pain and injury. Key heights are varied to match differing finger lengths which shortens keyboard reach and reduces over-extension. The split and angled design avoids wrist pronation and twisting of the hands which causes the carpal tunnel in the wrist to constrict.
