While technology is improving the efficiency of the modern workplace, it has made our workstations more complex. Nowadays, just about everyone has an ergonomic chair, an adjustable monitor, an adjustable keyboard tray or desk, and a newfangled keyboard and mouse. But, adjusting it all to just the right fit is complicated. For most people, it’s a guess as to whether the workstation is set up correctly.
