[ARCHIVED] Comfort and Technology Tips

Correct placement of a monitor and keyboard can reduce eye, arm, shoulder and neck fatigue. Follow these tips for comfortable computing whenever working at a computer workstation

  • Use an adjustable chair. Get comfortable with its features and make adjustments regularly.
  • Rest your eyes periodically by focusing on an object 20+ feet away.
  • Stand and stretch your back and arms from time to time.
  • Position whatever you are looking at most of the time (the screen or reference material) directly in front of you to minimize turning your head.
  • Remember that even if your workstation is set up properly, you can still get muscle fatigue from being in the same position for too long. Be sure to periodically adjust your monitor, keyboard or chair to stay flexible.
