Aside from regular exercise, an ergonomic workplace is a must for your body!

Creating your workplace goes like this:

  1. feet flat on the ground
  2. sitting height: pelvis above the knees
  3. sitting depth: space the size of a fist between knee and chair.
  4. support the lower back: round shape above the belt
  5. table at elbow height
  6. the upper border of the screen at eye level
  7. viewing distance: at arm’s length
  8. keyboard: relaxed posture and support the hand and wrist
  9. leave sufficient space for the mouse
