The study of how your body efficiently (or inefficiently) works in different environments is known as ergonomics.

Office ergonomics is the process of identifying and adjusting items in your work environment so that you reduce the risk of injury or illness while performing office tasks.

Ergonomically-adjusted workstations help you avoid awkward positions and repetitive tasks that can lead to:

  • developing repetitive motion or strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
  • increasing headaches
  • creating eyestrain
  • increasing neck and back pain
