Infrequently do I rave about health altering technology… Frankly, I’m usually quite skeptical of all things “ergo” given my years of experience trying one tool only to cycle it out for another after limited impact. Zergotech’s ‘Freedom’ keyboard is far and away the exception.
I’m a senior sales executive at a rapidly growing start-up based in Los Angeles, California. Though I’m uncomfortable to admit it, I probably spend…

As a software developer, I have suffered from RSI (Repetitive Strain Injuries) for a long time. I have tried several ‘alternative’ keyboards over the years, but have rejected each of them for various reasons…until now. The Zergotech Freedom Keyboard represents quality, in every aspect; from the actual hardware, to the design, to the people behind it. They took the time to personally reply to both my questions and my suggestions. …

I’ve been using the Zergotech Freedom keyboard intensively for three months, and am enjoying it more and more. The only problem is that now I want a second one, for my work office! :-)
The keyboard has a satisfying solid click to the keys (I chose the Kailh Brown Box Switches, so not too noisy), and the split layout is great. I’ve used many ‘natural’ or curved keyboards in the past, and the hand-angles of the Freedom keyboard are similar, but…
Some split ergonomic keyboards can be quite a nightmare to get used to. Not so the Zergotech Freedom, which attempts to combine ergonomic innovations with a familiar design. The Australian company has worked hard to address the major pain points that can lead to repetitive stress injuries, such as by eliminating the twisting of hands and ensuring symmetry of reach when typing. It does this through a combination of tiny design tweaks, and the end result is a very unique typing experience that someone who cares a lot about posture and typing ergonomics may want to look into.

My quest for the perfect keyboard continues… In early 2019 I got the Ergodox EZ, then I tried the Dygma Raise but went back to the Ergodox.
Onto my third ergonomic keyboard: the Zergotech Freedom. The philosophy behind this keyboard is to give as much ergonomic benefits to its users while minimizing the learning curve of a new design. I was intrigued.
I’m writing this part of the review literally less than an hour after receiving the Zergotech Freedom.
My first impressions are very…

Some ergonomic keyboards are full of gimmicks that do little to serve the purpose of protecting your wrists and digits from repetitive stress injuries, while others come seriously close to perfection. For me, the Ultimate Hacking Keyboard (UHK) is the perfect combination of form over function, and it would take a miracle of a keyboard to pull that UHK out of my hands. And although the Zergo Freedom keyboard didn’t quite achieve that seemingly unattainable goal, it did come pretty close.
The perfect keyboard is very subjective, and muscle memory tends to work…

Disclaimer: Zergo provided us with a review unit of the Freedom.
The Zergo Freedom is one of the most ambitious ergonomic keyboards to come out in recent years. It attempts to do what few ergonomic keyboards before it have tried- fix all the issues that can arise from using a keyboard, from finger fatigue, wrist discomfort, shoulder pain, to CTS.
So how does it fare? I spent 3 weeks using the Zergo Freedom on my desktop. See whether the keyboard deserves a place at your home or office in this review.

It’s not every day we get to review a completely new brand here on eTeknix. Ironically, I spotted this product on a Google Ad banner on our very own website and reached out to them. A small company has a partnership of investors into the start-up for a next-gen ergonomic keyboard design to relieve typing related pain. Something I can strongly relate to myself, my fingers aren’t as youthful and spritely as they once were. …

Over the past month we have been testing a really exciting and truly innovative ergonomic keyboard, the Freedom from Zergotech which bills itself as a programmable, mechanical, split, ergonomic semi-orthogonal keyboard. Whew. That’s a lot to unpack and we’ll get to that in a bit.
First a disclaimer. We were lucky to get a pre-production version. All of the pictures I take are of this pre production model. I will add a few pictures at the end of the final version.
Let’s start from the unpacking. As you will see, this keyboard has wrist…
