External numeric keypads can be easily combined with a mini keyboard or other keyboards without a numeric section. This is ideal for individuals who need to input a lot of numbers. These keypads can be placed separately on the desk and can be easily stored away when not in use. Additionally, they allow for alternating between right and left-handed data entry, which enhances comfort and productivity during work.
Why choose an external numeric keypad?
Most ergonomic and mini keyboards do not have a numeric section, which reduces the reaching distance to the mouse and allows typing within the shoulder line. This significantly reduces the risk of repetitive strain injury (RSI) or other related issues, as the shoulders and forearms are less strained. Moreover, keyboards without a numeric section are more compact and portable.
However, there are situations where a numeric keypad is very useful. For individuals in financial and administrative professions, having direct access to a numeric section is essential. In such cases, an external numeric keypad is a great solution. It provides the convenience of numeric keys while allowing for ergonomic work practices.
