A well-designed work space allows you to work comfortably without needing to over-reach, sit or stand too long or use awkward postures. The goal at any seated workstation is to promote ‘sitting tall’.
No matter your sitting posture, it will not feel comfortable if you maintain it for too long. Your workstation, chair and the way you have arranged your work area should allow you to easily alter your position. Movement is important for minimizing fatigue and can be as simple as slightly altering the angles of your neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles.
