Evoluent’s Reduced Reach Right-Hand Keyboard solves a problem righties might not have realized they had. Righties’ particular plight, as Evoluent sees it anyway, is that conventional keyboards shift character keys slightly to the left to make room for the right-sided number pad. That means we have to stretch farther to reach the mouse when we lift our right hand off the keyboard. It’s a first-world problem, to be sure, but one with some ergonomic hazards—namely, arm and shoulder strain.
The main way the Evoluent Reduced Reach Right-Hand Keyboard ($60 on Amazon) addresses the issue is by moving the number pad to the left side, thereby putting the character keys—where your hands spend most of their typing time—closer to the mouse. The keyboard also puts commonly used keys like Enter, Backspace, Delete, Page Up, and Page Down flush together on the far right of the keyboard, so your hand doesn’t have to travel as far from the mouse to access them.
