An articulating monitor arm is the ultimate ergonomic choice for intensive computer use. They promote a clutter-free workspace and support a healthier, more ergonomic working posture.
Users are encouraged to align the monitor by adjusting the height, depth, and in most cases, the angle of your monitor to help prevent eye and neck strain.
If your monitor is further than arm's length away, you tend to lean resulting in a poor posture that can put a strain on your back, neck, and shoulders.
Alternatively, if the monitor is too close it can cause strain on the eyes.
If you have a sit-stand desk, you may need to adjust the height of your monitor when you transition from sitting to standing and vice versa.
Benefits of Monitor Arms:
- An ideal solution for hot-desking environments because they allow the monitor height to be easily personalised, to ensure an optimum ergonomic outcome.
- Enable you to position your monitor ergonomically so you can improve your posture and wellbeing.
- Allow the height, distance, angle and rotation of monitors to be simply adjusted.
Your monitor should be positioned so that the top quadrant of the screen is at eye level, otherwise, your posture will place unnecessary strain on your neck and back. This could lead to discomfort, fatigue and eventually a musculoskeletal injury.
Monitor arms are an important part of the work environment. They available with either clamp-on or bolt-through fittings, and can configured for multiple screens.
