The Elevon – An Ergonomic Revolution
While ergonomic keyboard tray designs haven't evolved much since they were first invented in the '80s, the Elevon represents a radical departure from the traditional "under-desk arm" mechanical structure. With its innovative frame design, it turns the front edge of your desk into a super-ergonomic cockpit environment for computing.
Our goal in developing the Elevon was to create the ultimate, infinitely-adjustable desk extension that could work on just about any desk—including standing desks and treadmill desks—and install in less than 30 seconds.
With a retail price of only $399, the Elevon is far more versatile, adjustable, sturdy, easy to install (no assembly required!) and attractive than conventional keyboard trays that sell for upwards of $500 or $600, not including their cost of installation.
How We Came to Invent the Elevon
The Elevon started out as a solution for the serious inadequacy of conventional keyboard trays when used on a treadmill desk workstation. While becoming increasingly popular in recent years, treadmill desks were invented long after keyboard trays, so it's no surprise their unconventional requirements were never considered.
After the first year of testing different designs and "putting a lot of miles on the prototypes," literally, we repeatedly heard feedback from medical and ergonomic experts who were testing the Elevon that it would also be ideal for standing desk and sitting users, too, not just treadmill deskers.
Over five years of R&D, we further adapted the design to make it universally beneficial to users whether they are sitting, standing or walking while computing.
And now that the patents have been filed globally, we're proud to announce that this has been achieved. But there's much more to the story...
What's So Special About the Elevon?
Unprecedented tilting keeps your wrists & arms pain-free
Most keyboard platforms can only be tilted within a 20-degree arc. The Elevon's keyboard platform can literally rotate 360 degrees around its pivot bar. With the advent of height adjustable desks and treadmill desks, many users would be more comfortable, pain-free, and typing-proficient at steeper angles than they've ever before been able to achieve with a conventional keyboard tray (normally limited to only +5 to -15 degrees of keyboard tilt).
For example, setting a 30 to 35-degree angle allows treadmill desk users to retain accuracy while typing much faster, and at faster walking speeds if on a treadmill desk. The reason for this is that as the belt pulls the user backward the natural response is to press down harder on the wrists to maintain hand positioning over the keyboard, resulting in strain on the wrists, forearms, shoulders, and neck, and pressure on the nerves at the base of the palm.
Side platforms tilt for optimal mouse ergonomics
Now let's look at the platforms on the left and right sides of the Elevon. Like the keyboard platform, they can also rotate all the way around their pivot bars, and will typically be used anywhere from level to about -40 degrees of tilt.
But where even the most advanced “lilly pads” on other keyboard trays can only rotate forward and back, the rotational axis of the Elevon side trays is on a 45-degree angle to the axis of the keyboard tray. This allows the user to achieve a truly correct angle for the hands and forearms - eliminating flexion, extension, supination, and pronation of the wrists for the very first time (as shown below). Anyone who has ever suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome will truly appreciate this innovation.
A sturdy mounting frame as solid as your desk
Lastly, let's look at the mounting frame. A typical keyboard tray slides on a base frame "rail" that has to be drilled into the bottom of the desk very precisely. Add up all the tolerances in that rail and all the joints along the single arm mechanism, and what you get is a floppy tray that'll shake like a leaf. The Elevon's unique frame design makes the keyboard tray as solid as your desk. It mounts to virtually any desk simply by adjusting four knobs - two in front and two about 8" back from the front edge of the desk - on any countertop up to 1.75" thick. The long clamp bar ensures a rock-solid connection to the desktop, without damaging the finish.
Installs on any desk, in less than 30 seconds
Installing the Elevon on any standing desk is easy. No tools. No carpentry skills, and no degree in mechanical engineering required. See a quick demonstration:
A game-changer for treadmill desks
For treadmill desk users, the benefits of typing and mousing in a more neutral position are even more profound:

Jeff's Review from NotSitting.com
• Product dimensions: 45.57” Wide x 23.96” Deep x 4.1” Thick. (This includes the clamp knobs, while all platform surfaces are tilted horizontally.)
• Product weight: 21 lbs.
• Shipping dimensions: 48" Wide x 26" Deep x 6" Thick
• Shipping weight: 27 lbs.
• The Elevon fits over tabletops up to 1.625” thick.
• The Elevon's support arms reach 8.02” deep under your desk. (Measured from the front edge of your desk surface.)
• The Elevon extends 15.94" from the front edge of your desk. (Measured to the front edge of the mouse platforms.)
• The Elevon may fit over the crossbars underneath your desk. It depends on your tabletop thickness. To calculate, use this formula: [1.625" - (your tabletop thickness) +.645"]. The final number is the maximum crossbar thickness the Elevon can accommodate given your tabletop thickness. For example, if your desk is 3/4" thick, then [1.625" - (.75") + .645"] = 1.52", indicating the Elevon will fit crossbars up to 1.52” thick for a tabletop that is 3/4" thick.
How to Adjust Your Elevon
The first step is to place your keyboard on the tray and adjust the bumper pegs to set the keyboard as close to the edge of the tray as possible. This helps you to keep your shoulders back and reduces "computer hunch." A gel or foam wrist rest is recommended if one is not built into your keyboard already.
Setting the ideal angle of the keyboard tray is the next step. The steeper the angle, the more neutral your arms will be. Loosen the knob on the bottom of the tray to release the tension. Once you find the ideal angle, tighten the knob back down.
If you are a touch typist you can try angles steeper than -35 degrees, but if you need to see the keycaps in order to type, then try a shallower angle. Adjust the height of your desk so that your hands and forearms are in a straight line (in ergonomic terms: "with no flexion or extension in the wrists").
Next, adjust the side panel for your dominant hand, and create a nest for your mouse, trackball or other pointing device, by moving the pins around on the grid. Set the angle of the panel to eliminate all twists in the wrist (in ergonomic terms: with no flexion, extension, radial or ulnar deviation"). In other words, your hand and arm should be in a straight line when looking from above or from the side.
If you're ambidextrous and swap your mouse between your left and right hands, then go ahead and set the other panel the same way. Otherwise, leave it level and use it for things like your phone, or your favorite stress toy.
Lastly, you might want to adjust the side panels to be closer or farther from the keyboard tray, by loosening the tension knob and sliding the panel along the pipe length until you get it where you want it. Then tighten the knob back down. This is helpful for people with particularly longer or shorter arms, or those who've been instructed by a physical therapist or ergonomist to keep their hands as close to the keyboard as possible.
