Checklist For Your Workstation:
- The front of your chair seat should contact you just below your kneecap when you stand in front of your chair for proper seat height.
- When you sit on the chair, if the seat pan adjusts, create a slight forward tilt so that 50% of your trunk weight is on the back of your thighs and 50% is on your sit bones.
- The back of your chair should support your trunk in a vertical position; tilt the back of the chair up so it supports your lower back.
- Hips and elbows should be at approximately 90 to 110 degrees.
- Your wrist should be in a neutral flat position when you place your hands on the keyboard.
- Monitor height – the visual top of your monitor should be at your eye level.
- Monitor distance should be roughly an arm’s length away.
If you are still experiencing pain while sitting for long periods, you may want to consider purchasing a lumber roll to keep you more upright, or ball chair to sit more actively during the day. If pain still persists, call and book an assessment.
