Ergonomic Monitor Setup
Face a future without neck and shoulder pains.
The most ergonomic way to position your computer monitor is to place it directly in front of the user, at a distance of approximately arms length (approximately 18-28 inches).
The monitor should be angled slightly backward, so the top of the monitor is slightly further away from the user than the bottom.
The height of the top of the monitor should be at the eye level of the user, or slightly lower.
If you have discovered that your monitor is positioned at a lower level than is recommended (which is usually the case…), raising the monitor using an adjustable stand can easily rectify this. There are many products in the market today that are both affordable and functional.
If you are using a laptop computer, optimizing its work surface, ergonomically speaking, can be a bit tricky.
A special base that helps adjust the height and angle of a laptop monitor for a healthier and more comfortable work experience has been developed for exactly this situation.
