Working From Home
The developing COVID – 19 situation has seen an ever-increasing number of our patients now working from home, some for extended periods of time. At Pinnacle Spine & Sports, we believe that working from home should not pose any barrier to proper workspace ergonomics. With this in mind, we have developed a guideline to help improve your home workstation
General Work Station Ergonomic Advice:
- Monitor at arm’s length.
- Sit with hips higher than knees (especially if you have low back pain).
- Top of the monitor at or slightly below eye level.
- Have arms resting by the side, elbows at an approximately 100-degree angle.
- Have keyboard and mouse close to you to avoid reaching forward (use a separate wireless mouse & keyboard if using a laptop – don’t try and use the laptop’s keyboard & touchpad, as it’s impossible to get everything positioned correctly).
- Keep wrists neutral when typing (lower the keyboard stand if needed).
- Keep work close at hand.
- Keep documents at the document holder in between you and the monitor or at the side.
- Break the day up with multiple small breaks rather than one longer one (break & stretch every 30 minutes).
- Shoulder rolls, gentle neck stretches (while reaching down with the opposite arm), and side bends, are good ways to improve mobility during the day.
- Rest your eyes by looking off the computer screen and focusing on a distant object in between work tasks.
- Avoid slouching when sitting.
- Avoid reaching forward when typing.
- Avoid twisting and turning of the neck and trunk when switching between tasks.
