Follow the steps below when planning your workstation. The values displayed will help you place your equipment to establish a Neutral Posture, the basis of a comfortable computing workstation. Be sure to also try the Workspace Assessment Tool to evaluate your current working conditions.
Remember! Even if your workspace is set up properly you can still get muscle fatigue from maintaining the same posture for too long—adjust the position of your monitor, keyboard and chair as your posture changes.
Notes: Be sure to include shoe height to figure proper measurement. Consult an ergonomist for detailed information. Values are based on the 1988 Anthropometric Survey of the U.S. Army Personnel.
