Computer Use

Sit in a chair you can adjust. The chair should support your back.

Keep the top of your computer screen slightly below eye level. Also, you may want to try using a glare shield.

Keep your elbows bent at a 90-degree angle.

When you use a keyboard, key your wrists straight, and rest them on a surface for support.

Keep your feet flat on the floor or use a footstool.

Take short breaks to walk around and stretch.
