R-Go Split Break
With integrated break indicator
Helps you remember to take breaks
Inside the R-Go Split Break keyboard is an LED light controlled by the R-Go Break Software. This light changes colour, like a traffic light. When the light turns green, it means you are working healthily. Orange indicates it is time for a short break and red indicates you have missed a break. This gives you positive feedback on your break behaviour.

Ergonomic split typing
The R-Go Split keyboard consists of 2 separate parts that you can use in any desired position. So you can always type with straight wrists and prevent oppressing tendons and blood vessels. This ergonomic split keyboard can be turned into a compact keyboard with 1 move using the built-in magnet.
Thin keyboard with light keystroke
The Split keyboard is ultra-thin, so you don’t strain and oppress the blood vessels and tendons in your wrists while typing. The special scissor mechanism in the keys ensures a light keystroke, so less strenght is needed to press the keys. As a result, the fingers are more relaxed while typing.
All you need to know
The R-Go Split Break keyboard is an ergonomic split keyboard with integrated break software. This keyboard stimulates you to take regular breaks. This keeps your body’s blood flowing, prevents strain and keeps you fit during your working day.
The keyboard consists of two separate parts, which you can place in any set-up you desire. This splitting prevents flexing of the wrists while typing. Typing with straight wrists reduces muscle tension and prevents oppressing of tendons and blood vessels. The built-in magnet allows you to turn the two separate parts of the keyboard into a compact keyboard with just one movement. The compact size ensures that the mouse is always within reach. The light keystroke means minimal muscle tension is present while typing. The keyboard is flat, keeping your hands and wrists flat and relaxed while typing.
LED colour signals in the keyboard indicate how healthy you are working and when it is time for a break. As you type, the light changes colour, like a traffic light. Green means that you are working healthily, orange means that it is time for a break, red that you have been working too long. Through these subtle colour signals, you receive feedback on your break behaviour in a simple and positive way.

Healthy and flexible
Chances are, as you read this, there is a standard keyboard in front of you on your desktop. Because although there are many different variants on the market, most people still use a standard model keyboard.
A keyboard based on an 1878 design by Christopher Latham Sholes! But those who think the split keyboard is a new hype are wrong.
