Sit-stand desk + dynamic monitor arm = the ultimate ergonomic solution?
As this page explains, the most important feature of a monitor arm is that it’s adjustable. Being able to regularly reposition your monitor so it’s comfortable to view is also critical because, as we explain on our page on monitor arms and sit-stand desks, the single biggest ergonomic danger you face is lack of movement during your working day.
A good quality monitor arm lets you regularly adjust your position relative to your monitor to relieve tensions in your back, neck, shoulders, arms and other body parts. But an even better option is a monitor arm in combination with a sit-stand desk.
Also known as a standing desk, sit stand-up desk and height-adjustable desk, a sit-stand desk can (surprise, surprise) be raised and lowered so you can use it either standing or sitting. This obviously means you adjust your body position throughout the day between sitting and standing but, as our page on the benefits of sit-stand desks explains, when standing your body is constantly making tiny movements, which are healthy. In addition, the positions of your shoulders, arms, etc when typing or using a mouse while standing are different than when sitting – providing yet more of that vital variation and body movement that you want.
