Beyond the Chair: Office Ergonomics for a Healthier You: Are you one of the lucky ones to use one of those chairs for posture support? Or perhaps an adjustable office chair? If your answer is yes, at the end of the day, do you still experience neck and back pain? Do your shoulders still crouch forward, and your neck still stretched forward while working?
To keep your neck from straining, your view of your screen should be at the lower half of your viewing angle. Your forearms should also be parallel to the ground while you type on your keyboard. This is the most relaxed and natural position for your arms to be in while typing. You may be able to adjust your chair up to a certain point, or even to the height you can comfortably view your computer display and keep your arms on the correct position, but what about your legs and feet? Are your feet able to stay flat on the ground and keep your legs from dangling?
The right computer screen should be large enough that your eyes can see everything comfortably without straining your eyes and neck. When working, your eyes should be aligned with the top-most part of the screen. If this is not possible because you are working on a laptop, then the screen should be on the bottom half of your viewpoint. This gives your eyes a relaxed viewing angle without straining your neck.
One of the coolest beach chairs that I came across is by Natural Access, and helps bring difficult terrain to people who use wheel chairs or have difficulty navigating uneven surfaces. It is called the Natural Access Landeez All-Terrain Wheelchair. Designed for outdoor use, it gives freedom for people who use wheelchairs to explore, to enjoy days at the beach or outdoor on dirt trails. It has large, oversized all-terrain wheels that absorb the shock for a comfortable ride. The fabric is tear and water resistant so that it can get wet, allowing you to truly enjoy the water, plus it folds down and can be partially disassembled for easy transport and storage.
The glide wheels are great, move smoothly and make for a much easier transition than springs. However, the wheels make a small noise as you recline the chair, leading this reviewer to believe that the sound could turn into an annoyance after years of use.
