I bought a TouchStream keyboard and could recommend it - but 
unfortunately they are out of business.

But I can share some other advice: go to a physiotherapist and let him 
show you some exercises for the back. My problems (both lower arms) 
stemmed from my back - even though that seems a bit strange at first.

By doing my exercises regularly I was able to reduce the pain 
significantly, and could start working with normal keyboards again (as 
my notebook has no touch stream).
