Welcome to The Human Solution.
Today we're going to be talking aboutHumanscale keyboard tray systems.
So, Humanscale keyboard traysare the highest quality keyboard trays available and the most popular keyboardtray systems in America.
So, this is because of a couple reasons, primarily because there've been designedto ensure that nearly every user is going to be able to work consistentlywithin their "neutral reach zone"which means that they're not going to have to reach realfar a mouse or their keyboard or whatever happened to bereaching for on their desk.
And this can allow them to maintain a low risk,low-stress posture throughout the workday.
The second reason they're sopopular that they're completely modular,which means that they're going to be able to be tailored and customized tofit any desk.
Literally, almost any desk.
And so, when I say its modular what does that mean exactly?So, there's four (4) primary components toHumanscale keyboard tray system.
The first componentis going to be the track.
This is the trackthat mounts underneath the desk.
It's available in sizes from 11 inchesup to 27 inches.
This is the 22-inch track, which is standard with most keyboardtray systems from Humanscale.
Now, it's going tomount underneath the desk and you're gonna be able to screw itto the underside of the desk by putting some screws in any of these holesto hold it there underneath.
So, you see this red tape hereand that's just he said that's provided by Humanscaleso you can stick it up underneath the desk and you're gonna be able toleave it there while you're screwing it in, essentially.
So, that's the first part ofthe Humanscale keyboard tray system.
The second part of a Humanscale Keyboard tray systemis going to be the mechanism.
Now this is the part that provides the height adjustmentand its gonna provide the negative tilt, on,you know, the keyboard tray system.
So you are going to be able to tilt the keyboardup to get, you know, a much more comfortable posture.
It does have built-in cable management, so you can runthe cables though for yourkeyboard and mouse and perhaps the numeric keypad,through this, and keep them out of the way.
So, this is the part of the mechanism that'sgoing to slide into that track.
It's going to slide in like so.
and it's gonna be held up under your desk just like that by the track.
This is the part the keyboard traymechanism that's going to actually hold the platform.
Now, there are nine (9) different mechanisms you can choose fromdepending on whether you have a short depth are you know limited depth desk.
Do you want a keyboard tray that is gonna come up real high above the deskand allow you to stand at work,you know, throughout the day.
So it's completely customizable.
The fourth part, I'm sorry, the third part the keyboard trayis going to be the actual platform.
There's ten (10) different platform options that youcan choose depending onyou know your personal preference.
And this is the nine hundred (900) boardand it's going to mount to that mechanism through these mounting holesright here.
there's two rails on either sideand that's what's gonna hold fourth pieceof the keyboard tray system, which is going to be the mouse platform.
So, this isthe high clipmouse and it's just going to slide on that keyboard tray,just like so.
Now, it's a "high-clip mouse" because you canraise it up his you about an inch of adjustability and you swivel themouse platform over the numeric keypad on your keyboard.
So, it's definitely our most popular mouse platform because it does have such anadjustableand you know wide range of adjustments.
there are thirteen (13) different mounting platform options you can chooseswivel or clip on mouth or depending onif you get the extra large 500 board, you know you don't even needmouse platform.
there's one other part the keyboard tray system that's completely optionaland that the palm rest.
So the palm rest is gonna sitalong the front side of the border right here and it's gonna be either gelor foam and it's either going to be covered either a synthetic micro-knitfor a synthetic leather.
we're gonna go take a look at some of our most popular keyboard tray systemsfrom Humanscale.
Those are going to be the 900, the 500, and the 100.
So, let's go take a look at those.
This is the Humanscale 900 keyboard tray.
The nine hundred (900) is a board designed to accommodate a keyboardand the user chooses what type of mouse platformthey prefer either swivel or clip-on to support their mouse.
Now, the high-clip mouse platform is our most popular because it allows the userto raise the mouse platform above the height of the keyboardand then you can swivel it over the number padwhich is standard on most keyboards this essentially has the effect of pullingthe mousecloser to the user, so they don't have to reach is far for it.
Now, this one is mounted ona 6G mechanism so you can see it really is quite easy to adjustthe right now it is at five and a half inches below the track,and you can raise it up with the touch of a finger hereto one-and-a-half inches above the track.
This keyboardtray system the nine hundred (900) is 19 inches wide,ten-and-a-half inches deep.
Now, the 6G also does featureup to 15 degrees negative incline,and that's really easy to adjust simply by twistingthis lever at the back the keyboard.
There is also an indicator that tells youhow many degrees of negative incline you are currentlyat on your keyboard tray.
Now, this is the Humanscale 500 keyboard tray.
It is a board this designed to be extra wide and accommodate a keyboard anda mouseall on the same surface.
Now it's twenty-seven inches wideand 10 inches deep.
Some reference this from here to herehas approximately seven and a half inches square,and their standard keyboard the typically approximately 19 inches,so definitely gonna be enough space for both keyboard and a mouseon the same surface.
Some people prefer this over the nine hundredbecause they feel it may be a little sturdier than 900 with the separatemousingplatform.
This is the Humanscale 100 keyboard tray system.
This is called the "combo system" in that is designed to fit eithernatural or wave shaped keyboardor the more traditional rectangular keyboards.
Now, the way they accomplish that is by including two sets of mounting holesone and twoand what you can do is unscrew thisand then you can flip around so that the straight edge it could be on the frontor you can have this curved edge on the front.
As you can see,the shape of this keyboard tray really does accommodatea wave shape keyboard quite well.
This one is equipped with a swivel mouse platform.
Which essentially means that you're gonna be able to swivel it out from underneaththe keyboard tray, so you can bring in right hereto have your mouse within easy reach.
Here's another view of the Humanscale 100 combo keyboard tray system.
As you can see, I have flippped around so the curved edges on the backand the straight edge is on the front.
Now, as you can tell, it's just a really versatilekeyboard tray systemthat is going to accommodate practically any keyboard tray on the market.
