These days, everyone is working from home. Working at your kitchen table or in your bedroom can place even more stress on your back, neck, legs, and arms. Here are some WFH (Working From Home) ergonomic products we love and tested that provide real relief from and aim to prevent pain.
NOTE: Some of these items are pricey, but you really do get what you pay for.
Monitor Risers. Your monitor should be at eye level, so you can sit up straight. The bonus is that you can store some office items under the riser!
Laptop Stands – If you are using a laptop and have been experiencing any neck or shoulder issues, you may want to investigate these. I, personally, use the Roost Laptop Stand. I love that it is lightweight and comes with a carrying pouch.
A Vertical Mouse. This one takes some getting used to, and is a bit pricey for a mouse, but once you have it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
The Purple Royal Seat Cushion: Everything they say about Purple products is true. This one transfers easily to the car, too.
A great footrest. This one is highly recommended by the New York Times. Being tall I don’t personally need a footrest; however, I have a client who swears by this product. It was a game-changer for her as she is only 5’2”.
An Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse Set: This set can only be used with Windows-based PC. We Mac folks won’t be able to use this product.
A mesh chair with lumbar, neck support, and arms: This chair also has flip-up arms to allow one to move closer to a desk or table if needed.
A lot of people thought that working from home was not going to be long term. With the pandemic numbers rising again, one may be at home longer than originally planned. Having the best ergonomic items in your home office will save you lots of aches and pains.
