We all know what we should be doing but sometimes a good reminder is always needed!

So here goes…the QUICK AND DIRTY:

  • Feet are fully supported flat on the floor (or footrest)
  • Knees resting at 90° angle (thighs parallel to floor)
  • Seat depth allows 2-3 fingers between back of knee and end of seat
  • Backrest has lumbar support
  • Chair has height adjustable armrests
  • Seat has cushioning with a rounded front
  • Primary monitor is directly in front of user
  • Top of monitor screen is slightly above eye level
  • Monitor is positioned an arm’s length away from user
  • Work surface is at elbow level
  • Mouse is placed on same level as keyboard, directly in front of user and as close as possible
