Humanscale Keyboard SystemIn many ways, keyboard support is the heart of an ergonomic workstation. Reach and vision drive posture. Humanscale's keyboard tray allows the user to sit in a healthy, neutral posture by bringing the keyboard and mouse to the user in an ergonomic position.
A well-designed keyboard tray offers protection from carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain, and other musculoskeletal issues. Since 1999, Humanscale has been the leading manufacturer of under-desk keyboard systems and today sells more than all other manufacturers combined.
“A decade of ergonomics research shows that using a negatively sloped adjustable keyboard tray maximizes the time spent working in neutral hand, wrist and upper body postures. These postural benefits can’t be achieved by just using a keyboard on a height-adjustable work surface.”
Humanscale’s most advanced keyboard mechanism, the 6G, provides intuitive ergonomic adjustability and unmatched styling.

Effortless UseHumanscale patented keyboard systems have effortless height and angle adjustment. Promoting negative tilt keying, the keyboard platforms will not go into a positive tilt.
DurabilityHumanscale keyboard trays are solidly anchored to any work surface and shaped for specific user needs. Hypoallergenic Gel palm supports offer height and durability and are designed to be compatible with human skin.
CustomizationHumanscale offers three negative-tilt keyboard systems, from 5G to our latest 6G, which combines easy dial-a-tilt and height adjustability with the strongest, most stable arm on the market. Humanscale's under-desk keyboard trays come in many different configurations, including left/right customization, to support any user need.
- Dial-a-tilt positioning that allows you to type at the angle most comfortable for you
- Ultra-thin profile to provide maximum knee clearance
- Superior design to provide maximum strength and stability yet extremely lightweight
- Raised tilt mechanism to protect the keyboard from collisions with the edge of the desk
- Tilt adjustment range: 0° to -15°
- Made primarily of durable powder-coated steel
We use fewer parts in constructing our products, and we use recyclable materials such as aluminum and steel to limit the potential impact. In particular, our task chairs use a sophisticated weight-sensitive recline mechanism that offers intuitive functionality, reducing the number of knobs, levers, and parts required to make the chair work. Our environmental philosophy is taken into account at every stage of product development through our Design For Environment process. The Durability and Upgradeability of products are also considered - we build products to last, so they will only need to be replaced sometimes.
Our product design is only the beginning of our environmental sustainability efforts. We also examine our supply chain, manufacturing facilities, showrooms, and offices to evaluate our evolution in minimizing impact. We monitor our greenhouse gas emissions, waste, energy use, and other key metrics that indicate our progress.
On a global level, Humanscale is a member of the U.N. Global Compact, which aligns businesses with common goals of improving labor conditions, protecting human rights, preventing anti-corruption practices, and promoting environmental efforts. We are also committed to responsible sourcing of raw materials. Our policy is to refrain from sourcing minerals from conflict mines in or around the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Our Zero Waste PolicyOur Zero Waste policy targets 100% waste diversion by the year 2030. In 2020, we achieved 90% landfill waste diversion for all factories globally and set a target of at least a 1% improvement until 2030. So far, we have already exceeded this goal. As of 2022, we are diverting more than 93% of all waste from landfills. Waste audits are performed monthly at each global facility to refine our process and improve diversion efficiency continually.
Achieving TRUE CertificationIn 2022, Humanscale became the only furniture manufacturer awarded TRUE® Gold and Silver certifications for all factories globally. TRUE® stands for Total Resource Use and Efficiency and is administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) to help facilities define, pursue, and achieve zero waste goals while becoming more resource efficient. You can learn more about TRUE Certification here.
Humanscale's award-winning office solutions, including self-adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms, and task lighting, inspire movement and support the user in every posture.
The Humanscale Design Studio, based in New York City, abides by the philosophy that good design achieves more with less. Function, simplicity, longevity, and sustainability are at the core of all their designs. When thinking through the design and manufacturing of each product, they carefully consider the materials and resources used to create an overall Net Positive impact.
Humanscale is known for its history of collaboration with the legendary designer Niels Diffrient, who designed many of their task chairs, including the iconic Freedom chair -- the first self-adjusting chair without manual knobs and levers. Humanscale partners with other esteemed industrial designers, including Don Chadwick and Todd Bracher. Their innovations have been honored with more than 200 prestigious awards since 2007 and featured in various museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art.
