Ergonomic Split KEYBOARD
Dygma Raise is an ergonomic split keyboard that enhances your health and comfort while improving your productivity.
Ergonomic split keyboard design
Using the keyboard for long hours throughout the day can be a strenuous task. Ergonomic split keyboards are designed with specificity to adapt to the position of your wrist, hands, and shoulders while typing. Instead of conforming your hands to the keyboard, the Raise conforms to the natural way your hands are positioned.
Raise is a split keyboard. It has two independent pieces, so you can move each part until your hands are aligned with your forearms.
This will give you a neutral angle and avoid possible injuries.
You can adjust the width between the two halves, placing them in front of your shoulders to reduce internal shoulder rotation. This allows the keyboard to adapt to people with different body frames. The split design will help you type in a position you’re most comfortable.
Adapts to your body angle
Normal keyboards force the wrists to bend towards the pinky side of our hand. When splitting the keyboard, you can rotate each half to your desired angle of use. The Raise’s ergonomic split design helps decrease the strain on your wrists or hands as you keep them in a neutral position.
Reduces wrist extension
Wrist extension occurs when you raise your wrist above the plane of its neutral position. Ideally, one should attempt to have the tips of the fingers at the same height as the wrist. Wrist extension can greatly reduce blood flow through the wrist, causing pain, fatigue, and numbness
The Raise is built with a low-height design. It has an 18-millimeter height with a 3-degree angle of tilting from the back to front.
Integrated palm rests and palm pads
The ergonomic function of the palm rests and palm pads are to elevate the wrists to a more neutral angle. This provides comfort and reduces wrist extension.
The palm pads are removable. The top material is made of a smooth fabric. The bottom is made of an anti-slip material, which allows the palm pads to not slip off the keyboard but still be easy to remove. Having removable palm pads makes it easier to clean. Palm pads are 4-millimeters in height.
8 Thumb Keys
The Raise is an ergonomic mechanical keyboard that sees the potential of the strongest yet least used finger, the thumb. The thumb’s dexterity is capable of handling multiple keys.
A normal keyboard has only one key for the thumb, -that is the spacebar. The Raise has divided the spacebar into 4 keys and has added 4 extra keys underneath them. The extra 4 keys are called the under-row.
The under-row keys are low-profile switches, which means that they are slightly lower (2 millimetres lower) than the rest of the keys. This ensures that even though you bottom out the spacebar keys, you won’t accidentally hit the under-row keys.
Function-wise, you can use all 4 keys as a spacebar, or assign any key to have the function you desire. Our configurator software allows you to remap any key.
Every key in every layout is remappable. This enables you to create as many custom key combinations that you need when using the Raise.
Efficient natural movements
You can work more efficiently by programming your keys or a sequence of keys to do repetitive tasks that you do on a daily basis. This can speed up your workflow tremendously. You can set them in favor of the movements you are accustomed to doing and minimizing unnecessary movements.
Reduce unnecessary movements
You can configure any key to be a macro with its own color. You can even configure keys to have special functions, i.e. pressing a key once, several times or holding it. Having multiple macros allows you to be more efficient.
With the Raise, you can detach either half of the keyboard, and only use the other half. This way, you’ll have the flexibility of using your keyboard the way you want to use it.
Free space for what you need
Using half of the keyboard will give you more space for your mouse. This feature is also uniquely beneficial to left-handed gamers.
