Monitor Arms Can Change the Way You See Your Work

Ergonomics Training Atlanta, Atlanta Ergonomic ConsultantThe ergonomically correct way to view a monitor is to position your monitor(s) on center-line with your head. Position the monitor height so that the top third of the screen is at eye level when you are sitting upright in your chair. Envision that your chin is on a shelf and look directly forward at the portion of the screen that you refer to the most. The monitor height should be positioned so you can maintain an natural upright head and neck posture.

Depending on your vision needs, you may need to move the monitors up or down or forward or back to fine-tune the clarity of your vision. The increased use of bifocals and trifocals means that more people are viewing their monitors from a new angle.  Ergonomists recommend placing monitors at a lower height – sometimes on the work surface – for people who wear bifocal or progressive glasses and view through the middle or bottom portion of their lenses for close vision.  Monitor arms can accommodate all vision needs to provide height and distance adjustability, unlike a fixed monitor.

Collaborate More Effectively
It’s easier to collaborate when you and your coworkers can easily see the monitor.  No matter where you are sitting or standing, your monitor can flex to the best possible viewing position for everyone and make your meeting time more productive – up, down, right, left, landscape or portrait.

Make Your Desk Space Really Work
Transform the dead space underneath and behind your monitor(s) into useable space. With a monitor arm, you can move your monitor out of the way when you’re not using it.  Take back your desk space when reading, writing and proofing hardcopy documents so you can work on the area directly in front of you rather than off to the side.

Increase Visual Comfort Effortlessly
We all have our own preferences for monitor placement and viewing angles depending on our height, vision issues and the lighting around our workspace. Look for a monitor arm that provides multiple adjustments so you can change the height, depth and tilt angle according to your vision needs. Positioning two computer screens is easier with a Dual Monitor Arm.

There are many HD, LCD, LED and IPS panel monitor arm selections and configurations. If you have any questions about which model would be best for your workplace needs, please give us a call at 1-800-289-3746 or email us at
