Our Company

ErgoType BV started in 2002 and aims to market ergonomic hardware and software for Digital Screen Equipment (DSE) workers. ErgoType BV places a lot of value on the scientific and medical basis of its products. In order to keep up these high standards, ErgoType BV co-operates with a paramedical institute.

In 2002 EKS changed their name to SafeType Inc. at about the same time when after a long process of development the keyboard went to market.
