Armchair advice and lessons learned

Practical ergonomics tips from a Wahington Post article ...

"SKIP CHAIRS WITH ARMS: They tend to get in the way when typing, says Tamara James, ergonomics director in Duke University's Occupational & Environmental Safety Office.
WANT ARMRESTS?: Make sure they're adjustable by height and width; jelled or padded armrests are good to alleviate pressure on your arms.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY: If you are feeling pain or discomfort, speak up and ask how the chair can be adjusted. Don't wait.

LESSON: Ergonomics pays little attention to office chair armrests, but they can trigger serious problems -- and complications."   continued ...   (Via newsobserver)
