Ergonomic Computer Accessories to Improve Your Comfort and Increase Efficiency
How often have you experienced back or neck pain at work? If you’re like millions of other Americans, suffering from some type of soreness or discomfort has probably become a part of your daily life. You already know about the benefits of taking numerous short breaks throughout the day, looking away from your screen frequently to prevent eye strain, and trying to get a little exercise in while you’re at work, but is there anything you can do to fight against the nagging pain in your back or neck? Adding a back or seat cushion to your ergonomic office furniture can make a huge difference.
Besides being incredibly comfortable on your back, a softer, more malleable cushion will make all the difference. A number of back cushions are molded to fit the contours of your back so that you get a custom fit that works for you. A seat cushion can work wonders on your body and increase your overall comfort as well.
Sometimes adding a footrest to your other ergonomic equipment can be beneficial as well. Footrests can provide you with the ankle support that is necessary, take pressure off of the bones in your feet, and promote circulation in your lower body. Some models of footrests even rock, which encourages a healthful rocking motion that can increase your balance, improve your muscle tone, and help to soothe back pain. It’s also incredibly helpful in easing away stress; rocking back and forth is often both calming and comforting.
Something as simple as a wrist rest for your keyboard could be exactly what you need to reduce your pain levels throughout the day. Options like the Goldtouch Gel Filled Palm Support align with the right and left sides of your ergonomic keyboard and help to protect your wrists, hands, and arms from contact stress. The ability to reposition the supports as necessary will make all the difference in reducing your pain throughout your day.
If you’re utilizing a standing ergonomic desk as part of your office setup, a standing support mat is an absolute necessity. An option like the Ergomat AB Classic is a great choice as it’s designed to increase your comfort while reducing tripping hazards, body aches, quality issues, and sick leaves.
