Ergonomics Tips for Working at Home

Check out these simple steps you can take to help optimize your posture and improve your comfort when working at home.

1. Select your work space
  • Select a work space and chair that allows your keyboard to be located at or just below elbows height when your shoulders are relaxed, and your elbows are about 90 degrees.
  • If this is not possible, get creative and utilize a cushion or folded blanket to raise you up.

  • If you feel tension in your hips and thighs, take a break and sit.
