Achieving the ultimate home office set up, and our recommendations from monitors to desktop accessories will get you there.
Are you sitting comfortably?
For years, ergonomics in the workplace has been commonplace. Whether you have benefitted from a workspace assessment or altered your own workspace to ensure comfort – ergonomics and work have gone hand in hand. In simple terms, ergonomics is the science of fitting the task to the worker, and properly applied ergonomics is vital to ensure minimal health impacts such as discomfort, fatigue, and injury. When those negative factors are removed from your workspace, you will not only improve your job performance and productivity but will ensure a more comfortable and focussed day at the office, wherever that may be.
Addressing ergonomics, is addressing how and where you sit, what type of desk ( or kitchen table) you are working at, the positioning of your screen and more besides.
Whether you have the luxury of a physical home office, or your kitchen is multitasking in its role, we have a couple of clever ideas to help you achieve optimal comfort.
One piece of furniture that is emerging as triumphant for home offices around the country are height adjustable or sit stand desks. That said if you don’t have the space or budget for the superhero of desks, we have just the trick for you.
The Contour Ergonomics Sit-Stand Workstation is designed to sit on top of your dining table or kitchen counter, holds your laptop and can be adjusted to your preference of sitting or standing as you work.
If like many, you are working from your laptop when you are working remotely, screen height, posture and wrist positioning are very important. For that reason, many of our clients have opted for a laptop stand that raises the position of your screen and with the introduction of a wireless keyboard, this ensures you are addressing the issue around posture and joint health, particularly in your wrists.
Among the options available, the most popular solutions for adapting a laptop in a home office environment include:
- Logitech MK270 Wireless Desktop
- Fellowes Hylyft Portable Laptop Riser
- Leitz Ergo Cosy Adjustable Laptop Stand Velvet Grey
