The Ergonomic Arm Rest
What are the Benefits of Ergonomic Armrests?

The Value For The Ergonomic Arm Rest. Read how ergonomic armrests can prevent shoulder strains and unnecessary tension.



*



In our desk-bound jobs, we use our upper bodies more rigorously. For example, we are constantly moving or shoulders, hands and wrists when typing at our desk.

No matter how advanced your ergonomic workstation may be, the position in which you work (arms held across the desk as you type) is not neutral. Neutral position means when your body is default position, or natural position. For example, the neutral position for your arms is to hang downwards.

By stretching or laying your arms across your desk for hours at end, causes strain and stiffness to our shoulders and arms.

The Benefits of an Ergonomic Arm Rest





1. Ergonomic armrests allows your arms and shoulders to be in a relaxed position.

2. It minimizes your tendency to make forceful movements.

3. Provides support to your arms to prevent tight shoulder muscles.

4. Helps maintain "neutral typing position".



Therefore take into consideration on choosing a suitable ergonomic armrest as part of your ergonomic workstation set up.

How to Choose Ergonomic Arm Rests



The principles of Ergonomics is all about fitting the workstation to the worker to make their movements at work as natural or as "neutral" as possible.

Therefore, when choosing armrests, they should be adjustable in

  1. height

  2. Armrests that are too high causes 'raised shoulders', which is harmful in the long run. Armrests that are too low causes leaning.

  3. length

  4. They should not prevent the workers from sitting close to the desk. They should also provide adequate coverage of support.

  5. and, distance between armrests

  6. This is to be customized to the user, allowing comfort and spacious enough to get off the chair easily yet not slide and lean around when in the chair.
