Manufactured with Mechanical Switches

The Highest quality switches available on computer keyboards

Why Mechanical switches? Independently controlled switches are more consistent in what they do, are longer lasting, and take less force to activate. This means they feel comfortable to the touch, and can be operated for longer compared to rubber‑domed switches found on conventional keyboards.

Mechanical switches are very kind to your hands. They feel nice and soft, and at the same time they feel sturdy and consistent. They are very reliable, so even after years of use, they continue feeling sturdy, comfortable, and consistent.

Providing a gentle tactile feedback when pressed that helps you feel every key register, you no longer need to press the keys down all the way to register (“bottom out”). This allows you to use less force to type, helping avoid fatigue, and pain in your fingers, wrists, and shoulders. These stresses are early signs of Repeated Stress Injuries, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Truly Ergonomic keyboards with Mechanical Switches last more than 10 times longer than other keyboards, either conventional or ergonomic, so also save you money by avoiding future keyboard purchases.

Overall, provide a better, more ergonomic and more comfortable typing experience with a longer lifespan.

Rubber Domes  

Conventional keyboards and other ergonomic keyboards use membrane or scissor switches with rubber domes:

  • have an uncertain and spongy feel
  • greatly vary their sensitivity through their short life
  • require to use too much force causing pain and strains in your wrists, shoulders, neck, and lower back

High Reliability

If you've never typed on a mechanical keyboard, you don't know what you're missing. Most keyboards use cheaper rubber domes. Mechanical keys contain actual springs and simply have a much better quality feel to them.

Mechanical switches feature an independent mechanism for each key (a feature not present on conventional keyboards), require very low force to activate, provide a gentle tactile feedback, and are very kind to your hands.

Mechanical switches are also reliable and robust, provide a long life expectancy - over 10 times longer compared to conventional keyboards - preserving their excellent tactile feel. This means that feel great and work perfectly even after several years of use.

Mechanical Switches mounted to a metal plate

Cherry MX-Type Brown Mechanical Switches mounted to a metal plate  

The mechanical switches are mounted to a metal plate (black color) instead of directly to the PCB (green color).

This adds a layer of stability to the entire keyboard and increases durability dramatically since the stress of pressing keys remains on the metal plate and not to the PCB directly, prolonging the life of your keyboard by making it more durable.

As well, the mechanical switches are well secured in place producing a more solid and stable feel.

Dual-Layer PCB

All Truly Ergonomic keyboards have a Dual‑Layer PCB (Printed Circuit Board) inside. Dual‑Layer PCB provides strong solder joints and ensures greater longevity as well as flawless command transmission.

Although Dual‑Layer PCBs are expensive, the benefits allow for considerable savings on space by allowing simultaneous shielding of large numbers of components, cut down on the number of interconnection wiring harnesses, and increases the durability and reliability of the entire PCB.

Switch Stabilizers

Wide keys like the Spacebars, Backspace, Enter, Shift, or Ctrl, use a hidden hinge‑like wire to stabilize the entire length of the key, particularly the edges, so it can properly move up and down disregarding where you press it.

But, not all switch stabilizers are the same:

Most keyboards use
low quality stabilizers

All Truly Ergonomic keyboards
use hidden high‑quality stabilizers

Mechanical Keyswitches Stabilizers

Pressing keys with low quality stabilizers does not feel as solid as it should, and sometimes they do not work properly.

Pressing keys with high‑quality stabilizers move up and down
quite nicely disregarding where you press them.

Additionally, removing and reinstalling keycaps is an extreme hassle and not recommended even by their respective manufacturers.

Additionally, removing and reinstalling keycaps from Truly Ergonomic keyboards is very simple and straightforward.
