Proper ergonomicsCreated by:
Choose a chair that supports your spinal curves. Adjust the height of your chair so that your feet rest flat on the floor or on a footrest and your thighs are parallel to the floor.
Keep key objects, such as your Handphone, pen or paper, close to your body to minimize reaching. Stand up to reach anything that can't be comfortably reached while sitting.
Keyboard and mouse
Place your mouse within easy reach and on the same surface as your keyboard. While typing or using your mouse, keep your wrists straight, your upper arms close to your body, and your hands at or slightly below the level of your elbows.
If you frequently talk on the phone and type or write at the same time, place your phone on speaker or use a headset rather than hanging the phone between your head and neck.
If your chair is too high for you to rest your feet flat on the floor, or the height of your desk requires you to raise the height of your chair, use a footrest. If a footrest is not available, try using a small stool.
Place the monitor directly in front of you, about an arm's length away. The top of the screen should be at or slightly below eye level. The monitor should be directly behind your keyboard.
Under the desk, make sure there's clearance for your knees, thighs and feet. If the desk is too low and can't be adjusted, place sturdy boards or blocks under the desk legs. If the desk is too high and can't be adjusted, raise your chair.
