"Ortholinear" is thought to be a derivation on a term coined by TypeMatrix as "ortho-linear" which has been concatenated in use by the keyboard community. It refers to keyboard layouts that are aligned vertically and horizontally. It is believed by some to help with RSI symptoms but no research can be found on this subject.[1]
