Home Office Ergonomics

A comfortable work space can help you feel your best.You may need to give your home work area a makeover…


Home workstation set up:

  • arms at sides
  • elbows bent to 90 degrees
  • wrists straight
  • hips/knees bent at 90 degrees
  • feet flat on floor
  • sit up straight
  • top of the screen/monitor should be eye level


For long periods of time, a desktop computer is ideal. Laptops and tablets force you to look down at the screen while working which may place excessive strain on your neck.

Visual Breaks: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Place the monitor at a 90-degree angle from the window. Use ambient lighting with task/desktop lighting over documents.


  • take breaks every 30-60 minutes
  • maintain good postural alignment
  • stay well hydrated
  • stretch/exercise daily

If you continue having pain, you may benefit from physical or occupational therapy. For more information, please contact RCCA at info@rcca.org561.655.7266
