The 411 on computer related discomfort

ErgoTip#9: Understand the causes of computer related discomfort

Shooting pains in the wrist and hand, numb elbows, cramped feet, fingers that tingle, stiff, aching neck and shoulders, lower back or jaw pain, blurred vision, itchy eyes, and lack of energy at night.

Whew! Experiencing any of these symptoms yourself these days? We have Ergotron’s Carrie Schmitz to thank for this tip, (as we do most of our tips). In fact, she wrote a terrific blog about it already. Take a minute and explore some of the reasons your work habits may be causing you pain.

October is ergonomics month…

It’s National Ergonomics month, something groups like the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society take pretty seriously. We do too. It’s part of our history and it’s part of our commitment to you, to create solutions that promote healthier, more productive environments for you to do what you do best…work, play, create.

Throughout the month we will be offering 20 ErgoTIPS for a more ergonomic and healthier workstyle. Our first comes courtesy of our web team.

ErgoTIP #1: Give yourself a Workspace Assessment

Healthy computing starts with awareness. Use our questionnaire to evaluate the ergo-fitness of your current set-up at Assessment.ergotron.com.

We wish you many ergonomic moments in the month ahead! Your back, and neck and wrists may thank you for it too.
