Best way to add negative tilt to keyboard?
« on: Sun, 20 January 2019, 17:58:26 »
Negative tilt has been a lifesaver for my RSI. I've just picked up a Realforce R2 55g, and have been using a Grifiti wrist pad to prop up the front end, but am wondering if anyone has found something that's about TKL width that has been a good solution.

Looking for recommendations for something solid like acoustic foam speaker stands or any other sort of foam wedge, rather than a keyboard tray that mounts under the desk. Thanks!

Post-It note pads. Not joking.

I made a tenting riser thing out of wood, too.

You don't strictly need a wedge, you just need something to prop up the front with. A stack of sticky notes actually sounds perfect for this although over time you will probably crumple some of the notes.

The post it thing works well but something more aEsThEtIc, would be to make a wrist rest, that has a piece that would fit under the keyboard to raise up the close edge. Highly recommend applying some rubber pads here to prevent slipping

I ended up using these which are incredibly expensive for what they solve but they're unobtrusive and matte black!
