for the majority of people but not many people
actually consider the medical consequences that
working with computers can cause, such as:
- muscle pain
- damaged eyesight
- bad posture
*Sitting at a computer for long periods of time can take a
toll on your body. By not sitting with the correct posture,
it is easy to end up with back pain, neck pain, knee
pains, and a tingling of the hands and fingers.

prevent other pain and possible serious issues.
Avoid using excessively wide wrist rests, or wrist rests that are
higher than the space bar of your keyboard.
