Razer targets ergonomic productivity market with Humanscale


Razer is well known among gamers for their gaming laptops and peripherals like mice, keyboards, headsets, and the like. Earlier this year, Razer jumped into the consumer headphone space with the Razer Opus. The company now has its sights set on the productivity segment and has partnered with Humanscale, a global leader in workplace ergonomics. Available today, the Razer productivity suite consists of an ergonomic keyboard and mouse, alongside a new mouse pad.

Designed to enhance workflow and reduce fatigue, the new products draw on Razer’s previous gaming peripheral and Humanscale’s workplace ergonomic experience.

“The vast majority of office peripherals are based on one-size-fits-all designs and technology, becoming a source of frustration to the user and hinderance in the working day. I am incredibly proud of the Razer Productivity Suite that we are unveiling today alongside our partner, Humanscale, to address these issues. We firmly believe that our combined expertise and innovation will take workplace productivity to the next level.”

Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit

The Razer Pro Click mouse is “ergonomically contoured to position the user’s wrist at a neutral 30-degree angle, therefore preventing discomfort and injuries associated with wrist pronation.” The mouse was also designed with both small and large hands in mind and features extended palm, thumb, and pinky supports.
