Product Description: 

Compact keyboards are mini keyboards—usually without a numeric keypad. These can be useful for some persons with disabilities because their small size reduces the range of motion and reach needed to access all areas of the keyboard. Additionally, their smaller size means that a mouse can be positioned closer to the user and that more desk space is available for any additional assistive devices needed.
