You’ve got a comfy, ergonomic chair. A big work surface to spread out your work. Storage that keeps everything within reach. But there are several workstation “extras that shouldn’t become afterthoughts, because they can support productivity and increase ergonomics and comfort.
Laptops have created a lot of freedom, but they’ve also given us hunching, slouching and squinting. Flat screen monitors on raised arms not only improve your posture and reduce eye strain, they free up work space.
Keep your keyboard positioned correctly and keep carpal tunnel syndrome at bay. An articulating keyboard promotes a healthy posture for your shoulders, arms, and wrists. Better yet, it doesn’t take up valuable space on the desktop.

Whether using a built-in under cabinet LED light or a freestanding table lamp, task lighting will illuminate more possibilities.
