As someone who has had joint problems since teen years (rheumatoid arthritis) I tried buckling-spring keyboards a few times and lasted less than five minutes. Just typing the classic “the quick brown fox…” made me feel tired!

Not even in the same galaxy as “easy on the joints”.

There does seem to be a lot of options for people who like antisocial loud keyboards, though.
