Goldtouch External Number Pads Offer a Data Entry Solution That Increases Productivity While Mitigating RSIs


Cedar Park, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2017 -- "External number pad", "numeric keypad", or simply "keypad". Whatever name they may go by, these oft-forgotten little devices don't typically get the attention they deserve. While today's most popular devices may be slim, they're often missing these dedicated keypads, making data entry and calculations a long and cumbersome affair. The Goldtouch numeric keypad is a great addition for number crunchers and laptop users without full keypads — or for anyone looking to speed through their daily tasks.

The repetitive motions that come with data entry can put a big strain on fingers, wrists, joints and nerves. Whether it's due to making frequent calculations or just performing number-intensive tasks once in a while, an external numeric keypad is an excellent way to speed through the data entry process and while simultaneously protecting oneself from Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) like carpal tunnel syndrome.

While some external keyboards may include a numeric keypad on the right side of the board, this is less than ideal for both left-handed users and right-handed users, who can't easily reach the keypad where it's anchored. In addition, a built in numeric keypad on the right side of a keyboard forces many users to position their mouse outside of normal range of motion.

Advantages of external number pads include the following:

- With a dedicated numeric keypad, users find all of the keys they need in close proximity. This significantly reduces the amount of movement needed to enter data rapidly. Less movement means fewer chances for injury and a great reduction in muscle and joint fatigue throughout the day.

- When a number pad is anchored to a keyboard, users are forced to adjust their position and may never find one that feels right. An external numeric keypad moves wherever one needs it to. This allows one to place the keypad wherever it's easiest and more natural to reach, whether that's to the right, to the left, or in front of the keyboard.

- A Goldtouch numeric keypad provides excellent tactile feedback, so there's no need to press down too hard and strain wrists and joints. Number lovers will enjoy that satisfying click as they're crunching numbers.

Numeric keypads may be the little guy who goes unnoticed, but to users – especially those whose primary tasks involve numeral calculations – it is truly an unsung hero. The Goldtouch numeric keypad raises the bar for ergonomics.
