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).
