A keyboard tray is an important piece of equipment if you want an ergonomic workstation. It attaches underneath a desk and generally has room for both a keyboard and mouse. This prevents you from having to lift your arms uncomfortably each time to type or move your cursor. Keyboard trays are generally made of wood, steel, or plastic. Some have a sliding mechanism so that you can store the keyboard tray underneath the desk when not in use. These can usually be adjusted to various heights to accommodate bulkier keyboards. Some keyboard trays require drilling holes in your desk to mount while others have a clip-on mechanism. Some include special features like a pull-out mouse tray, gel wrist rest, and tilting capabilities.
