The MALTRON EXPANDED keyboard has been robustly designed with a strong steel construction to withstand heavy use, and a nylon coating for a smooth wipe-clean surface. Originally designed to help those with cerebral palsy (CP), it provides enhanced access for the physically disabled and visually impaired users. The integral keyguard goes a long way towards preventing accidental key presses, and also protects the keys from impact damage.
The large keyboard surface area (63cm x 25cm) and the built in keyguard are designed to reduce keyboard errors, enabling a higher work rate.
It has large, clear characters, black on white for alphanumeric and cursor keys, black on pink for function keys and black on yellow for control keys (alternative options are available if required).
This is a big keyboard that may also be placed on the floor or fixed at the foot of a bed to be used by toes.
It has a USB connector with an in-line 5-pin DIN type snap-connector. The snap-connector is designed to separate if the connector cable is accidentally pulled tight, thereby helping to prevent damage to the keyboard or computer.
We now offer an audio-visual feedback system for the Expanded Keyboard which can be selected as a purchase option. This will enable the Maltron Expanded Keyboard to "beep" and flash a light whenever a key is correctly pressed. The feature may be turned on or off as desired and may be particularly useful for people with cerebral palsy (CP) who will not need to focus on the keyboard to confirm if a key has been pressed correctly.
