Tired of hunching over computer screens?
Looking for ways to decrease wrist and arm fatigue from repetitive typing?
A couple simple steps could improve your posture and decrease the aches & pains associated with long-term computer use.
(1) Raise Monitors To Eye-Level
- Whether you’re sitting or working from a standing desk, position monitors so the screen is at eye-level. In general, your vision should focus on about the middle of the computer screen. Placing monitors on an adjustable height monitor stand (like LIFT or WorkEZ Professional) lets you customize your monitor’s height in concert with the height of your chair and keyboard for an optimal posture boost. Using an adjustable height monitor riser is convenient because it will work with a range of people and desks.
(2) Type With A Neutral Or Negative Wrist Angle
- Typing with wrists neutral or drooping down and away from you can help decrease typing fatigue and improve wrist health. This is true if you’re working from the seated position or from a standing desk. Using an ergonomic keyboard tray (like the WorkEZ Keyboard Tray) helps you properly position keyboard for the most typing comfort.
(3) Have The Ability To Adjust Your Workspace
- An adjustable desk doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming to use and the benefits can be worth the investment. Rather than forcing yourself into the same rigid position each day, and adjustable workspace allows you to customize your workspace to your mood and the ever-changing needs of your body. Plus, using an adjustable workspace allows you to fine tune the positioning of your computer and tweak it over time
