Ergonomic Keyboard

Our client had an idea for a better keyboard design. He reviewed all ergonomic keyboard and mouse options that were on the market and came up with a series of small changes to keyboard design that make huge improvements to ergonomics. The client came to Boost Design to get assistance with bringing the product to market, which involved the following activities:

  • Development of a development plan suitable for the product and client
  • Development of proof-of-concept electronics and firmware
  • Industrial design and rapid prototyping of a proof-of-concept keyboard assembly, suitable for initial testing
  • Refinement of designs into a first keyboard prototype, suitable for user testing, which underwent several rounds of refinement in order to perfect ergonomics for users
  • Work on electronic and keyboard design for manufacture (DFM) with chosen suppliers
  • Organised production tooling
  • Developed high-quality product concept images
  • Provided guidance with IP protection, certification testing, and product marketing
  • Provided other general startup guidance and support

The keyboard has won the international Red Dot Design Award for Excellence in Design and a Gold Australian Good Design Award. The Australian Good Design Awards Jury say:

“This is a design of true integrity. A highly innovative ergo keyboard, packed with many ergonomic features – including a patented sliding palm-rest solution. Positive online reviews suggest this is already well received well in the marketplace.”

The keyboard has also been listed on the CNET news website:

“Best Keyboard for 2021“
