Elevated total - sitting for hours in front of a computer screen elevated causes strain
on the neck vertebrae - an effort that causes ongoing pain. The neck is a sensitive
area and can radiate to other body parts such as shoulders, elbows, hands and wrists.
Lessening the neck muscles also may resolve pain unconnected body apparently.
Place the computer screen at eye level and down and allow the neck vertebrae to be
in neutral and the rest
Noah sides - most companies I see computer screens located next to the user, often
due to the need to communicate with clients, or to make room on the desktop. Side
posture work long hours puts the neck vertebrae enormous strain and pressure, which
can cause headaches, migraines and pain in other parts of the body. Noah sides of a
page - Spine stay constant load, then organizing body unnaturally with each part in
turn to another party.
The solution is placing the screen in front of the user if not get an audience, and
move it aside when audience. This can be achieved by using multi-directional arm
that allows the screen easily shift when necessary.
Screen close or too far - a small work area, difficulty seeing, or too small desktop
may result in a computer screen placed too close to the user, resulting in damage to
the eyes and headaches.
Screen too far strains the eyes and causes fatigue, irritability and nervousness.
Solution: the screen just under three diagonal screen, or more simply, straight arm
distance from the screen.
Mistaken use ergonomic desk - at the center of an ergonomic desk is curved groove
that allows the user to get his hands while typing, which lowers stress in the
shoulders, allowing muscles to relax worker. The problem many employees do not
understand how to use proper ergonomic desk. Used correctly Center the screen and
keyboard in front of the center of the user. One of the problems caused by incorrect
use ergonomic desk is placing the computer box in the space at the foot of the user,
thereby pushing unnatural position and adopted. Removing the computer box in your
feet, allow a more proper seating posture and better blood flow to the legs.
Prolonged sitting - very prolonged sitting can cause physical degeneration and back
problems, shoulder and neck. Prolonged sitting without movement compresses the
vertebrae, which in turn exert pressure on the nerves. Muscles surrounding the
vertebrae suffer from degeneration and blood flow is also impaired. Therefore it is
recommended to change position from time to time, stand up and stretch at least once
every half an hour, and adapted physical activity to work at the computer and during
work. The most recommended exercises are strengthening the abdomen and erector
muscles of the back, and back rotations.
Myth sitting right - the myth that you should sit with your upper body tilted 90
degrees toward the feet. This is a serious mistake. Actually sitting at an angle
between 100 to 110 degrees - sort of leaning lying - highly recommended. This is
sitting around 90 degrees body weight is exerted directly on the lower back links to
the maximum. Meeting of 100 to 110 degrees pressure on the vertebrae decreases
In fact there is no proper seating, seating is dynamic, meaning that it should be
replaced regularly seating positions throughout the working time, and in fact every
position is correct as long as it is not done for a long time too. This requires that the
chairman be aware throughout the body and feelings.
As chair - many employees enjoy a quality chair, but do not know how to tune it
properly, for example because the height of the chair according to the desktop,
because the height of the back of the chair, because the chair handles.
Solution: Get custom ergonomic guidance from the user's size and aspect ratio
according desk chair.
Body awareness - the most effective tool to prevent ergonomic hazards is the
development of body awareness. Developing such an awareness under professional
guidance can help purchasing cost effective equipment and tailored to users' needs,
and can improve employee productivity, prevent health problems, increase the
number of hours of work efficiency, and encourage proper use of existing human
