Goldtouch V2 Adjustable Keyboard for PC and Mac - GTU-0088For those in search of an ergonomic keyboard with both PC and Mac capabilities, The Human Solution now offers the Goldtouch V2 Adjustable Keyboard for PC and Mac GTU-0088. Replacing and improving on the discontinued GTU-MACB, which was a Mac-only model, the new Goldtouch V2 for PC and Mac gives you “plug-and-play” compatibility with both types of operating systems without a need to install drivers or new software.

The GTU-0088 gives you all the features you’ve come to expect from a Goldtouch ergonomic keyboard that can also be found in the PC-only GTN-0099 model – a compact size, low-force keys with a short travel distance, and the unique Goldtouch tenting feature. That last one is what sets the Goldtouch apart from most other ergonomic split keyboards – while most others require an accessory to be able to tilt the split halves at an angle, Goldtouch keyboards come with a patented ball and lever locking design which allows you to tent your keyboard quickly and easily without having to buy any separate accessories.

The keys feature both Windows and Mac legends and hotkeys, and the keyboard is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, as well as Mac OS 10.4 and higher.

Adding an ergonomic keyboard is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways of making your home or office workstation more ergonomic, and the benefits are almost immediate. The compact size of an ergonomic keyboard brings other peripherals like a mouse closer to you, cutting down on reaching and reducing shoulder abduction. The horizontal split and vertical angled tenting put your hands, wrists and shoulders in a more relaxed, natural position, which also cuts down on the pain issues associated with typing. Also, the soft, low-force keys and 4 mm travel distance help to keep you from “bottoming out” – having to push the key all the way down – which is another cause of repetitive stress pain issues associated with typing.

So if you want the comfort and configurability of a split and tented ergonomic keyboard with the added convenience of both PC and Mac capabilities, the Goldtouch V2 GTU-0088 is an ideal solution. As always, if you want more information, would like to order, or would like a quote on multiple quantities to fit out an entire office with ergonomic keyboards and make your office a whole lot healthier, you can always email us at info@thehumansolution.com, call us at 1-800-531-3726, or hop into live chat and we will be happy to help you take your first steps on the road to a more ergonomic workstation.
