Invest in a comfortable chair:
A chair with good lumbar support and adjustable armrests can help reduce strain on your back and shoulders. Make sure the chair is the right height for your desk, so your feet are flat on the floor, and your arms are at a 90-degree angle when typing.
We are a big fan of the Sayl chair by Herman Miller (left image) and the Autonomous Ergochair on the right.
Adjust your desk height:
If your desk is too high or too low, it can cause strain on your neck, shoulders, and wrists. A desk with the correct height will allow your arms to rest comfortably at your sides while typing.
We suggest desks like Fezibo Electric Standing Chair (left image) or the Adjustable Standing Desk on Etsy (right image).
Use a vertical mouse:
Logitech has spent a tremendous amount of time and resources developing the most ergonomic mouse. The Logitech MX Vertical is the best mouse on the market, in our opinion.
Take breaks and stretch:
It’s essential to take breaks and stretch throughout the day to help prevent muscle strain. Stand up and stretch your legs, back, and shoulders every hour or so to keep your muscles from getting too tense.
If you spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen, a monitor stand can be helpful. A monitor stand can raise the height of your screen to eye level, which can improve your posture.
If your feet don’t reach the floor while sitting at your desk, consider using a footrest. A footrest can help promote good circulation and reduce strain on your legs and back.
An ergonomic keyboard is designed to reduce muscle strain and promote a natural hand position. Look for a keyboard with a split design, which allows your wrists to rest in a more natural position while you type. We suggest the Logitech Ergo K860 wireless keyboard.
Don’t skip the palm rest pad:
If you type a lot during the day, a palm rest reduces the pressure on your wrists and adjusts your hand on the keyboard. Do not underestimate the impact of the palm rest pads, and get one that matches your office style.
Consider an ergonomic mug:
An ergonomic mug can help reduce strain on your wrists and shoulders while you work. Our ergonomic mug is an award-winning design that creates a comfortable experience with a sleek design.
