If office workers do not use a keyboard tray, they have a tendency to hunch forward and extend their wrists. This posture is a contributing factor for carpel tunnel syndrome as well as neck, shoulder and back pain. The 5G articulating keyboard tray helps to eliminate these problems by putting your wrists into a straight/neutral position while helping to relax your upper body and improve your posture at the same time.
The 5G features include a sliding tray that allows you to stow the keyboard under the desk when you are not using it. There is a tilt feature that puts your wrists into a neutral position. You can mount the separate mouse pad onto the right or left side of the keyboard tray. When boxed up, the keyboard tray weighs approximately 16 lbs.
A decade of ergonomic research by Professor Alan Hedge at Cornell University shows that using a negatively sloped adjustable keyboard tray like the 5G maximizes the time spent working in neutral hand, wrist and upper body postures. You cannot achieve these postural benefits with just an adjustable height desk.
The TreadDesk 5G keyboard tray has a suggested retail price of $440 but, if you order it with any TreadDesk Desk, we offer it at a special discounted rate of $239.95.
"I've been using the TreadDesk for quite some time now and I can't say enough good things about it! The tread itself is quiet, responsive, compact, and sturdy. Working while standing up and walking has been an easy adjustment, and my base speed has increased steadily. I'm a college professor, and have spent the last twenty years sitting at my desk. I set up my computer at my TreadDesk so that when I'm working on it I'm standing or walking. I really wish I had this arrangement from the very beginning. I can't imagine ever going back!"
