I thought it would be handy to start a thread about ergonomics since I believe for most people, they’re pretty underrated. I’d like to think we here are a bit more ergonomically minded (trying to avoid RSI here haha).
Feel free to post your set-up, as well as give suggestions to others. If you want to improve your own set up, feel free to ask questions and I’m sure we as a community can help you out.
So what’s your set up like?
I want to upgrade my chair next. Hoping to score a used
Herman Miller Aeron for cheap in the future.
My desk is fine, but I don’t find myself using the stand function as much as I thought I would. Normally when I get tired I just stand and walk for a bit instead which seems to defeat the point of needing to stand at my desk for periods of time. I might change my desk to an L desk in the future for extra space, TBD.
Ergonomics that I want to improve on greatly are actually my work bench.
Currently my work bench is at an L to my desk, but sits much higher. Since it’s in the L formation, I use the same chair, but my chair can’t go any higher. Over long periods of time, this causes strain in my shoulders and neck. I try to make it easier by scooting in a bit more, but since I have boxes and stuff in the undersection of the work bench, I don’t really have anywhere for my legs which means I can’t really scoot in that much.
Should I consider just getting an adjustable stool to use for both my workbench and computer desk? Anyone have any suggestions or opinions on how I can improve the situation?
Can’t wait to see what y’all have as well!
