    Not sure if this should be in the computing forum - but as the keyboard would be used mainly for gaming - I have posted it here...

    Can anyone suggest a good keyboard for people with RSI? There used to be a lot of egornomic keyboards in the shops, but they don't seem to sell them so much now.

    Any links or suggestions would be great, thanks!

    Can you touchtype? If not then that's the first thing you should do - it doesn't take all that long and will do your wrists the world of good. :)

    Yep can touch type - 65 words per min or so...

    Though I am more interested in using the keyboard for gaming purposes... :)

    Why not get a different "keyboard" for your gaming?Presuming you do a fair bit of gaming,there are a few alternatives to the standard keyboard which are more comfortable and more functional.

    Ive been using one of these for a couple of months:

    and never use a keyboard for gaming anymore.The pad is just better in every way once you get used to it(may take an hour or 2 of gaming before you forget you ever used a normal keyboard).Also,your hand just sort of rests on it,so theres no strain on your wrist at all ;)
