One Handed Keyboards

A one-handed keyboard may be required due to:

  • Limitations of the work space.
  • Loss of function of one of the arms.
  • Loss of function of one or more digits of one hand.

Where the there is a loss of function, the benefit of the small footprint keyboards is that the operator's fingers have shorter travel distances as they type "one-handed". View Compact/Mini Keyboards for a listing of small footprint keyboards.


Compact/mini keyboards come in a variety of styles, from keyboards that do not have a numeric keypad (the keys are the same size as a standard keyboard) to those with physically smaller keys. The arrangement of the keys also varies between the keyboard models.

Single Hand Keyboard
by Maltron Keyboards
Model # - RS10N1B-US (right handed)
Model # - LS10N1B-US (left handed)
Special Order

The Single Hand Keyboards from Maltron have been developed to meet the needs of those who need to perform keyboard operations with one hand. The shape matches natural hand movement and the key arrangement minimises finger movement and raises typing speed.

The special shape and letter layout have been very carefully planned, taking into account the limited number of keys that can be accessed quickly and comfortably.

Word-processing input speeds of 85 words per minute have been demonstrated by operators using Maltron single handed keyboards. The fully ergonomic shape ensures freedom from strain and no RSI type problems have been reported in over 10 years, although all the work is done by one hand!

Both Left and Right hand models are designed for "Touch Typing", and these keyboards have Push-On Push-Off keys for Shift, Control and Alt functions; essential for single hand operation.

The unique switchable dual layout feature of Maltron keyboards has now been developed for single handed keyboards to give an alternative number entry option. The number pad numbers are now also grouped on the letters keys. Either letters or numbers may be immediately selected by pressing a separate button. Windows keys are also included.
