Be Sit Properly at the Computer

It is important to maintain proper position when sitting at the computer.The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offer these suggestions:

  • Option for a chair that is easy to adjust, feels stable, includes a backrest, and with wheels that touch the floor at a minimum of five points.
  • Make sure your knees are at the level of your hips while your feet are planted on the floor.
  • Use bendable armrests to support your arms and place your elbows close to your waist.
  • Make sure the seat is padded and offers at least an inch of room beyond your thighs and hips.
  • The seat should slightly point near the floor. There also should be some room between the back of your knees and the seat.
