And More Office Ergonomics!

Another Step Towards Ergonomic Perfection

Following another piece of advice from our office ergonomics friends at Humantech we took another step towards creating a more ergonomic office by adding laptop stands, with external keyboards and mice. This moves the screen of the laptop up higher which puts it at a more natural and neutral viewing angle, resulting in less stress in the neck and spine. An Australian site, Ergonomic Rescue, as a great little diagram to help illustrate:

what we got

We started out on a few recommendations from the consultants at Humantech, and then found products that would fit both the ergonomic and aesthetic needs of our office.

  • Goldtouch Go! Notebook Stand – It’s super compact (folds up!) and matches our Apple products perfectly.
  • TwelveSouth Hoverbar – We were blown away by the quality of this iPad stand/arm.  It clamps onto your desk or monitor/iMac and holds your iPad, like a boss.
  • Microsoft Arc Mouse – For our non-Bluetooth wielding member of the team we snapped up Microsoft’s entry into the world of sexy-mice.  It works great, and looks like something out of Star Trek.
  • Apple Bluetooth Keyboard – A classic, super compact and mobile, and always in style.
  • Apple Magic Mouse – My favorite mouse.
  • Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard – Just discovered this one- a great design, nice flat keys, slim profile, and extra special, it runs on light.

 

So far so good!  Every little bit helps to create a better looking, and more ergonomic work space.
