The Logitech Ergo K860 is a curved ergonomic keyboard specially designed for a better posture. According to the manufacturer, the inclination of the keyboard reduces muscle tension in the wrists and forearms – so hands and shoulders remain relaxed.

According to Logitech, the Ergo K860 has been shown to reduce muscle activity by 21 percent in the upper trapezius, a key muscle in the mid-back that stabilizes and facilitates shoulder and neck movements. The padded wrist rest places the arms just above the keyboard. According to Logitech, the wrists are 54 percent better supported and wrist flexion is reduced by 25 percent.
