A lot of people think that working in an office environment is easy, when in fact, a sedentary lifestyle can be unhealthy, especially if you aren’t using ergonomic office furniture such as an ergonomic chair, table and if your computer setup isn’t the correct height. Neck pain, especially is caused by a badly positioned monitor. The solution? Invest in a quality computer monitor mount arm.
Durable and extremely functional, arm monitors are a great addition to any office. They make the workplace more versatile, as they can convert a standard desk into a standing workstation without the hassle and expense of buying a brand new desk. A flexible and strong computer monitor mount arm replaces your existing monitor stand which can easily maneuver the tilt and the angle of the monitor. They’re very practical to use and easy to install, which is why they’re becoming very common in offices.
Similarly to ergonomic office furniture, by investing in an ergonomic monitor mount you can reduce the work days lost to stress and sickness and add to the productivity and health of your employees and yourself. In fact, it goes hand in hand. For instance, ergonomic chairs and desks will help, but the positive impact they have is diminished if the monitor is in the wrong position or wrong height.
A monitor that’s too low, or too high can lead to neck pain and aches, back problems and strained eyesight. Monitor arms are a cost-effective solution to ensure the monitor is just right. Ideally, the monitor should be on eye-level. Moreover, if multiple people are working on the same desk, the adjustment feature a monitor arm provides can be an invaluable asset.
Health benefits aside, a monitor arm can free up much valuable space. We all know how most offices are filled with paperwork and other things (for lack of a more general term) which no matter how much you organise, are always going to take up a lot of valuable space. This in turn, can make more space for your arms and allow them to be properly seated on the desk.
Bottom line is, if you’re spending a lot of time sitting at a desk job, and you’re starting to experience discomfort and pain, don’t let it draw out! Get an ergonomic desk, chair and monitor arm. You spend about a third of your entire day there, so you might as well be comfortable. The comfort will then increase your productivity, as well as the quality of your overall health!
