Do you find that you’re sitting at an uncomfortable position in your office because you are forced into awkward posture? As we have discussed before, there are many negative long term ramifications to having bad posture and if you think being taller than average is leading to unnecessary strain in your job, then consider some of the following solutions. Today we are looking at ways for those, who are taller or larger than average, to rectify issues they may be having at work.
A worthwhile investment for those of above average height is getting a quality ergonomic office chair, such as from the Bodybilt selection of products.
Bodyblit Stretch J2509 Tall Chair is the seating solution for taller than average workers with a weight limit up to 21st. (133Kg). The Bodybilt Stretch seat is 4” longer than the standard contoured seat. It is also 3” narrower than the wide contoured seat.
Bodyblit Stretch J2509 Tall Chair provides exceptional comfort with upper and low back support. Multiple layers of foam combine with anatomical contours and unique recesses to reduce seated pressure.
Adjustable Monitor Positions
If you find yourself leaning forward for extended periods during the day in order to properly work on a PC or laptop, you could be risking repetitive strain injury. A great way to deal with this issue is to install an external ‘mount’ or ‘arm’. These are tools designed for you to customise the positioning of your work device, such as a laptop.
ERGOTRON LX DESK MOUNT NOTEBOOK ARM. Durable polished aluminium construction. Sleek and streamlined, the LX frees up space and allows positioning of your display for greater productivity. Reposition your laptop with just a touch. Up, down, forward, back. The LX laptop arm provides an unparalleled range of motion.
Having an ergonomic chair and a customisable device mount may not always be the answer however. The truth is that some desks are a fixed height and while getting a brand new ergonomic desk setup in your office could seem daunting, there might be a simple alternative for the taller among us.
