Avoid injuries at your work space
Published: January 27, 2009

Computers are a fact in everyday life and they are probably here to stay. If you don't have your work space setup correctly, you can end up with some uncomfortable physical symptoms in you neck, back and shoulders.

  • Numbness or tingling sensations.
  • Stiffness, throbbing or constant pain.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Tendonitis.

Make sure you are sitting in your comfort zone. You should adjust the height and viewing angle of your monitor to achieve maximum comfort. You can also adjust the height of your chair and/or get a foot rest.

Avoid some or all of the following habits that most of us do every day.

  • Try not  to stay in a fixed posture for too long.
  • No leaning or slouching forward or back.
  • Take regular short breaks away from your desk. Take a walk and stretch your legs. Give your eyes a break.
  • Try to relax and avoid tensing your shoulders or neck.
  • Make sure your keyboard and mouse are within easy reach without having to stretch.
  • Place your monitor directly in front of you so you don't have to turn your head to view it.
  • Avoid straining your eyes. Make sure your eye glasses are the proper prescription.
  • Have proper lighting for your work space. Not too dim and not too much glare.
  • Keep you monitor clean.
  • You don't want to look up at your display. Keep your head just a little higher than the top edge of your monitor so you are looking just a little bit down.
  • Keep your wrist straight when using your mouse or keyboard. There are plenty of wrist rests you can purchase for your keyboard or your mouse.

The important thing to remember is that you want to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Happy Computing.
