Discover Tips of Computer Ergonomics

Computer Ergonomics Standing DesklComputer ergonomics, the proper setup of the computer workstation for the height, size and work habits of the individual worker, may assist with the prevention of repetitive motion injuries often associated with poorly designed or executed computer ergonomics.

Essential to positive computer ergonomics is correct computer set up. Good computer ergonomics dictates that you should be able to see what you are doing easily. This includes having adequate amounts of light, preferably natural sunlight surrounding your workstation. An ergonomically designed computer workstation is one in which you can easily view your monitor without tilting your head up or down.

Additional computer ergonomics tips:

  • When using a keyboard, it is essential that its height is right to prevent to support the forearm and prevent excessive bending at the wrist. Finding that ideal desk and keyboard height may be easier with a height adjustable desk.
  • Be sure to use a mouse that is specifically designed for you. If you’re left-handed, use a left handed mouse.
  • Positive computer ergonomics often requires the use of a monitor arm. Monitor arms allow computer operators to adjust the placement of their computer screen to suit their needs

The tips above will assist you in developing positive computer ergonomics. Computer ergonomics, however, is just part of the greater discipline of office ergonomics, the study of ways in which to match an office workspace to the individual to enable increased comfort and maximized productivity. A logical offshoot of office ergonomics is ergonomic office furniture, which offers ready-made solutions enabling businesses to establish safe, comfortable and productive workplaces.

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
