computer. The complete package includes the EkaPad, EkaHand, Sweater Guard, USB
Cable (1m), Wooden Desk Stand, Travel Pouch, QuickStart and OnRamp manuals, Cheat

The EkaPad is a 12 key chording text and data entry device. The EkaPad
combines 12 keys (like a phone), letter frequencies (simple chords for
common letters), and a comfortable size to hold in your hand. The carefully
designed and tested ergonomic key geometry and case structure make it
easy and comfortable to use.
Characters, commands and functions are chorded with one, two or three
fingers. Upper case letters and many symbols use a prefix chord also. EkaPad
is a lot more than just a single handed, small, and pocketable data entry
device; it has all the functions, characters, and symbols of a 107 key
professional keyboard. Works best in one handed use with an EkaHand or
a Desk Stand, both provided in the EkaPackage. Can be held in one hand
and chorded with the other. Can also be used laying flat on a desk top.
The EkaPad works with and supports all keyboard operations in Windows,
Macintosh, Unix and Linux.
The EkaPad is a keyboard for one hand, designed for handheld and desktop
computer use. Its tested training materials make the EkaPad easy to understand;
its ergonomic shape and scientifically assigned chords help you become
The EkaPad also incorporates 99 user programmable registers for keyboard
shortcuts, and another 99 Keep registers. You can store passwords, letterheads, frequently
used complex phrases, or often needed lists. And Keep can be password protected.
The EkaPad technology is a completely new approach to entering text (and
all keyboard characters) into computers and digital devices of all kinds.
It is no longer tied to the legacy technology of typewriting nor is it
an adaptation of a desktop keyboard. The unique easy entry EkaPad technology
makes single handed text entry a reality.
The EkaPad standard color is silver pad side and black back.
