With the advances in modern ergonomics, computer accessories have been made available that will greatly increase day to day productivity. Commonly, many think that just having an ergonomic office chair is the only necessary ergo attribute necessary to work a healthy day. Computer accessories like ergonomic monitor arms, keyboard trays, and copy holders are becoming more and more common because of the invaluable ergonomic benefits offered.
Ergonomic monitor arms are typically seen in IT offices because of there ability to hold multiple computer screens. However, benefits like increased usable desk space and mobility are making monitor arms more and more popular. Having the option of your computer screens tilt angle, depth from work station, and mounting position are attractive features that will definitely have you hooked after trying them!
Keyboard Trays are often over looked for there useful benefits. Nothing is worse in my opinion than have a beautiful office desk with an old keyboard laying right on the work surface. That space is valuable! Not to mention horrible for your posture. The ability to tilt your keyboard at an angle, swivel, and hide under the desk surface are just some of the qualities that make them worth there weight in gold. My personal favorite is the padded wrist wrest standard on my ESI keyboard tray. It allows my palms to rest comfortably while I type at a much faster and accurate rate throughout the day. My WPM increase from 80 to 103 with the addition of the ESI keyboard tray.
Hopefully you will consider adding some inexpensive ergonomic office accessories to your office. The cost is minimal compared to the productivity gained and comfort level achieved.
