Monitor Arm Ergonomics

Monitor Arm Ergonomics

If you sit and stand at an adjustable-height desk, you should have a monitor arm. A monitor that’s too high or too low is setting the user up for neck and shoulder pain.

You should also consider that our spines stretch when we stand, meaning our monitor height should be an inch or two higher (relative to the desk height) when you stand. There’s no doubt about it: External displays connected to ergonomic monitor arms are essential for all standing desk users.

Check out these articles by our staff experts on the ergonomics of monitor arms to make sure you understand what an ergonomic keyboard tray can, and should, do for you.
