How to convert wired keyboard to wireless, or wireless kvm

Some background that may or not be helpful:I am disabled and use a computer about 35 hours a week at work and about 25 hours a week outside of work. Using a standard computer mouse and keyboard has always been quite painful for me. As a result of severe CTS in my right hand I have had to utilize my mouse with my left. Now CTS is starting to affect that hand as well, and though my right is doing better it is still worse. Because of my current setup having long USB extension cables laid across the room is causing a lot of headache.
Finding a left handed mouse that is ergonomic for someone with CTS is pretty damn hard. Finding one that is wireless has been impossible. I am somewhat good with tech but because of my essential tremors and other hand issues obviously cannot go and solder a transmitter into any of my existing equipment.
I am looking for help finding a way to convert a wired keyboard and mouse into a wireless one. I don't care how many USB ports it will take, and I will be near a power outlet and not that far from the PC (5 meters at the most). I'd obviously prefer something on the cheaper end of things but really need something that's reliable as I can't really get up and mess around with the cords that much. I know the tech has existed for some time but for the life of my can't find any products that are still being made. If anyone can suggest a way to convert the mouse and keyboard or knows of where I can buy a wireless KVM switch I would greatly appreciate it.
Sorry for the length of the post, just asking for help elsewhere has gotten a lot of negative responses pretty much saying just buy a right handed mouse or be next to the computer, both of which will only cause more issues.
