Countless hours spent at a traditional desk workspace setting can take a toll on your body,
posture and comfort. Improving the tools you use as well as the environment you work in will do
wonders for ensuring a healthier lifestyle and better quality of life at and outside of work. Here
are seven ways to benefit you and your workspace.
VARIDESK Height-Adjustable Standing Desk
Most of us know about the benefits of a standing desk. However, most of us don’t want one. The
Varidesk allows you keep height adjustments exclusive to your desktop as opposed to the whole
desk. Additionally, the design allows it to blend into your desk without being a gaudy eyesore.
Ergonomic Kneeling Chair
Maybe you have seen these before and wondered how in the heck someone sits on them. To
achieve great back posture, this chair causes you to essentially kneel on the lower portion of the
chair and then sit your posterior on the upper part. The end result is that you are forced to
activate your core, thereby ensuring better posture and less risk for injury or pain. Perfect for
folks who spend an extensive amount of time sitting at desks.
Gaiam Balance Ball Chairs
Ergonomic office items are probably going to look weird. But that shouldn’t stop you from
investing in the Gaiam Balance Ball chair. We’ve all seen and heard of the benefits of using an
inflatable exercise ball at our desk. The downside is that they are hard to move around without
having to get up from your seat. This chair adds wheels and a backrest to this popular
ergonomic seating solution.
Reducing stress can be as easy and reducing the clutter around you. Just as well, finding smart
places to put loose items (such as a cell phone) can make all the difference. The Ergotech
Ultimate Desktop Organizer organizes your things on either side of the computer monitor. Attach
photos, notes and other varying items to keep your workspace clean and your mind sane.
Kensington SoleSaver Ergonomic Footrest
While seated, a large amount of strain is endured by your core should your chair be too low.
One of the ways to combat that strain is by utilizing the Kensington SoleSaver Ergonomic
Footrest. The angle keeps your feet and legs in a natural position as you continue to work.
Raised knees also ensure better circulation as you sit.
Vertical Optical Mouse
Sometimes deemed the “Shark Fin,” this mouse keeps your hand, wrist and arm in the
“handshake” position. This improves circulation, reduces strain and, let’s face it, looks really cool
on your desk.
Antec Advance Accent Lighting
Hours staring at a computer screen can wreck havoc on your eyes as they fix their position on a
short depth of field. A subtle back light behind the computer monitor can bring relief to your eyes
and add a cool color hue to improve your surroundings.
