  • Ergonomic keyboard BUT portable for vacations?

    Hi. I have a pinched nerve and shoulder issues and need to use a desktop that's tricked out with a keyboard at a very specific level underneath the desk (in a tray), an ergonomic mouse and even a special way of sitting so I'm all at 90 degrees and yadda yadda.

    Has anybody found a solution to writing-on-vacation under these circumstances? The "ergonomic laptop stands" I see online don't really offer a solution to the monitor needing to be up. Unless I bring a separate keyboard?

    I've looked on John August's site about this a few times, but maybe there's not a good solution to vacations? I kind of want to buy an Ikea desk and just leave it at my sister-in-law's so I can bring my entire desktop!

    I'm not sure what your needs are, but I thought I'd share this. I have one and like it.

      This may or may not be applicable to you - but when I go to the library I have a netbook which I place on the desk on top of a plastic container.. takes up almost no space in my daypack as with the lid removed it just lines the bottom of it.

      I put my external keyboard on my lap. I also pulled out the Numpad keys of the keyboard and placed a little mousepad cut to size there instead. So keyboard and mouse together on my lap with minimal movement from keys to mouse. You don't need a big mousepad - just set the acceleration so smaller movements will cover a bigger distance.

      If you have problems with mouse clicking you can also weaken the flat metal springs of the mouse to get a softer click - you have to open the mouse and its fiddly but you can make the click as soft as you want.

        Thanks. I have a special mouse and all that for home, and I need the keyboard low, but just not a good way to set it all up when I'm on vacation -- my inlaws like to go somewhere for 2 weeks where we kind of sit around and there's tons of time to write, but I haven't been able to the past few years because of this shoulder issue.

        I ended up buying this and bringing the whole damn thing on vacation. But it works!
