What is the Neutral Reach zone?
The Neutral Reach Zone is the area that can be conveniently reached with a sweep of the forearm while the upper arm hangs in a natural position at the side." (Sanders & McCormick, 1993)
What is Dial-a-Posture?
Dial-a-Posture is a mechanism that allows the user to easily adjust the tilt of the keyboard platform with one hand from -15 degrees to + 10 degrees. There is also a built-in tilt indicator gauge. The Leader Series arm mechanisms have this functionality. Tilt is an important function, which is more likely to be properly used due to its ease of operation.
What is the difference between the Leader and Easy Rider Series arm mechanisms?
The Leader Series of arm mechanisms have Dial-a-Posture functionality. The Easy Rider Series have a tilt adjustment; however it is more of manual two-handed operation to make adjustments. Tilt is adjusted by loosening / tightening a knob on right side of the mechanism, while adjusting the platform with the other hand.
What is the ConnectIt™ fastening System?
The ConnectIt™ is a unique fastening system that allows the user to remove and install the keyboard platform from the arm mechanism in seconds without any tools or hardware. This ability to install and re-deploy platforms can result in savings on installation and operating costs.
What is a track and what length do I need?
The track is the device that is screwed to the underside of the desk, and which the arm mechanism slides into. The standard length for ISE's Teflon tracks is 21.75" and 23" for the ball bearing tracks. However, the Teflon track is also available 19.5", 23", and 28" lengths. Note that the keyboard platform will not tuck completely under the desk with the 19.5" track, but this may be needed if the desk is not deep enough to support a standard 21.75" or 23" track.
What is a negative tilt keyboard platform?
Negative tilt refers to the keyboard tray sloping downward at the back. A keyboard tray sloping upward toward the back (positive tilt) results in a bent wrist. Ergonomists universally agree that using a keyboard in a negative tilt encourages a neutral wrist posture, meaning your wrist is neither bent nor flexed, which minimizes the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other MSDs. In addition, contract stress on the inside of the wrist is minimized when keyboarding in negative tilt.
Do you have to lock the arm in place when you move it up or down?
No. All ISE arm mechanisms use a lever-free spring assisted height adjustment feature that allows it to be adjusted up or down by simply tilting the platform. Once it's at the right height, it automatically locks in place when released.
What are the ISE keyboard and mouse platforms made of?
ISE platforms are made of ?" phenolic, an ultra-strong composite made of wood pulp and resin that's non-toxic, durable and easy to clean.
Is there a mouse tray that stays level when the keyboard platform in angled / tilted?
Yes. ISE's Swivet mouse trays tilt independently from the keyboard platform, allowing the mouse tray to remain a level surface while the keyboard platform is tilted.
Can I move my mouse tray from one side to the other?
Yes, on ISE's Swap mouse tray has a unique bracket that allows for tool-free right and left handed mousing. ISE also has a Slider system that has a moving mousing surface that can easily slide from right to left, which is ideal for multi-user workstations. Finally, ISE has several single-surface platforms such as the Skate that have interchangeable keyboard and mouse palm pads that can easily be reversed for right of left handed users.
What is the purpose of a corner maker?
The corner maker allows use of adjustable arm and keyboard platform where the natural corner of the work surface does not permit it. ISE has a selection of corner makers to fit any workstation that are compatible with any of their keyboard platforms.
Does ISE have a mouse platform that goes above the 10-key numeric keypad?
Yes. ISE's Swap mouse tray can be rotated and positioned over the 10-key numeric keypad.
Does ISE have a Sit-Stand arm mechanism?
Yes. ISE's Leader and Easy Rider Series Sit-Stand arm mechanisms have a height range of 12", and can be adjusted to 6" above the desk surface. Depending on the height of your desk, this may allow you to use your keyboard both standing and sitting.

An articulating keyboard tray can provide optimal positioning of input devices. However, it should accommodate the mouse, provide leg clearance, and have an adjustable height and tilt mechanism. The tray should not push you too far away from other work materials such as your telephone.
Maintain good posture when working.
Sit all the way back in the chair against the backrest. Keep your knees equal to, or lower, than your hips with your feet supported.
Pull up close to your keyboard.
Position the keyboard directly in front of your body.
Determine what section of the board you use most frequently, and readjust the keyboard so that section is centered with your body.
Adjust the keyboard height
so that your shoulders are relaxed, your elbows are in a slightly open position (100° to 110°), and your wrists and hands are straight.
The tilt of your keyboard is dependent upon your sitting position.
Use the keyboard tray mechanism, or keyboard feet, to adjust the tilt. If you sit in a forward or upright position, try tilting your keyboard away from you at a negative angle. If you are reclined, a slight positive tilt will help maintain a straight wrist position.
Wristrests can help to maintain neutral postures and pad hard surfaces.
However, the wristrest should only be used to rest the palms of the hands between keystrokes. Resting on the wristrest while typing is not recommended. Avoid using excessively wide wristrests, or wristrests that are higher than the space bar of your keyboard.
Place the pointer as close as possible to the keyboard.
Your pointing device should be positioned within easy reach. Over-reaching can result in shoulder and/or arm discomfort. If you are reaching out to use your pointer, elevate it on a mouse bridge, platform or small book to bring it within closer reach.
Keep your wrists straight and hands relaxed when using your pointer.
Don't hold the pointer with a tight grip or extend fingers above the activation buttons. Avoid moving the pointer with your thumb or wrist. Movement should originate at your shoulder and elbow.
Keep your elbows in a slightly open angle (100° to 110°) with your wrists in a straight position.
If you sit in an upright position, your keyboard should be placed in a slight negative tilt so that the wrists can be placed in an aligned or neutral position. Your hands should be slightly lower than your elbows with your fingers pointing toward the floor. (Note: If you recline back in your chair, you might not need to tilt the keyboard. Check the alignment of your wrist, and then set the angle of the keyboard as needed. Your sitting posture will affect how you adjust your keyboard and pointing device.)
Work at a reasonable pace and take frequent stretch breaks.
Take 1 or 2 minute breaks every 20-30 minutes, and 5 minute breaks every hour. Every few hours, try to get up and move around.
Use good typing technique.
Float your arms above the keyboard and keep your wrist straight when keying. If you use a wristrest, use it to support your palms when pausing, not while keying.
Hit the keyboard keys with light force.
The average user keys four times harder than necessary.
Limit repetitive motions.
Reduce keystrokes with macros and software programs such as voice recognition. Reduce pointing device movement with scroll locks and keystroke combinations.
Use of non-prescribed medications, or wrist splints, can often be more harmful than helpful.
If you begin to develop symptoms, seek help. Early intervention can prevent future problems.
Your life style and physical fitness affect how you feel at work.
Stay in shape by stretching and exercising regularly.
