Key points:

  • Head straight up in line with shoulders and torso.
  • Top of monitor in line with eyes or slightly below.
  • Upper back straight with shoulders and arms relaxed at the sides.
  • Arms relaxed at sides with a 90 to 100 degree angle at elbow; adjust armrests to support arms with wrists straight so hands are in line with forearms.
  • Adjust backrest to support curve of lower back.
  • Adjust seat height so feet are on floor or footrest. Comfortable space between desk and thighs; knees extend past seat and form a 90 to 110 degree angle.
