People who work on computers at home or in the office know how much their hands hurt after long sessions of typing due to poor typing posture and hand positioning. Most people just ignore this fact and continue to work till it becomes a serious issue and by that time, the treatment might cost more or you’ll have to take days off work to recover. So if your work involves you typing or researching a lot on a computer, it is important to get an ergonomic keyboard to reduce the strain on your hand and to make work more pleasant.
The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 was developed after extensive research with leading ergonomic experts to ensure you have the most comfortable hand positioning while you pound away on your keyboard day after day. The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 tries to correct the way your wrist and hand is positioned to ensure you work or play better. Unnatural positioning of the hand also reduces your work speed and fatigues you faster. At first sight the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 looks a bit strange due to the layout of keys but it is designed to provide a natural angle for your hand. This cutting-edge keyboard is connected to your computer by way of a USB 2.0 cable.
Style and Portability

The curved key bed and the natural arc are examples of how the usability and ergonomic experts at Microsoft made this Microsoft Keyboard more intuitive, comfortable and user-friendly. Commonly used symbols like the equals to sign, brackets and Backspace have additional keys assigned to them and they are placed above the Number Pad for easy access.
The gable design of the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 keeps your forefingers higher than your little fingers which allow you to adopt a natural position while typing. There are 107 keys on this Microsoft Keyboard with dedicated keys for various Windows and Internet shortcuts. The integrated palm rest offers greater support while you work due to its plush cushioned surface. This Microsoft Keyboard has a reverse slope that helps your hand and wrists rest naturally for greater comfort while you work.
