[ARCHIVED] Comfort Tips for Computer Users

Symptoms of stress and fatigue from working at a computer can be avoided with proper posture, good work habits and ensuring the equipment you work on is adjusted correctly:

To maximize personal comfort:
Your keyboard angle should be adjusted as flat as possible or pointing slightly downward.
Keyboard should be at elbow height.
Your monitor and keyboard should be in line with the center of your upper torso and eyes.
The top of your monitor should be slightly below eye level.
Use a wrist rest, if necessary, to hold your wrists level.
Never plant your wrists on the rest while you type. Use it to support your palms between keying.
Adjust your monitor so the contrast is high, brightness low.
Adjust the angle of your monitor to reduce glare or reflection.
Keep the screen free of dust and fingerprints.
If the display is flurry or jittery, report it to your supervisor.
