Mini keyboards can be used in a ‘laptop kit’ configuration whereby the laptop is positioned on the laptop stand and also benefits from the addition of a separate mouse to provide an ergonomic solution for longer spells of activity.

They are also favoured by some Occupational Health Therapists, Assessors and Occupational Nurses because the narrower size of the keyboard allows the mouse to be positioned closer to the user’s centre line thereby reducing acute mousing arm angle on the horizontal plain.
