New technology has rapidly expanded our world and our abilities to communicate and do business. The digital age has introduced the benefits of improved communication and lightning-fast global commerce, but it has brought with it a multitude of computer work-related injuries and physical ailments associated with prolonged sitting. Carpal tunnel syndrome, induced by typing for extended periods of time with incorrect positioning of the wrists, has reached an almost epidemic status among today’s desk workers. It’s time to improve awareness of the health hazards of the digital age, and it’s time to redesign offices with the worker’s health and well-being in mind. If you work in a Studio City office, you need to take the right precautions to avoid carpal tunnel.
The Importance of Proper ErgonomicsThe right approach to carpal tunnel syndrome is about prevention. Avoid the costly expenses of treatments like medication and surgery by outfitting your office with ergonomically correct furniture to stop carpal tunnel syndrome before it starts. There are many ergonomic office accessories that can help you avoid work-related health hazards currently available.
The Humanscale float desk keyboard system is one weapon in your arsenal in the battle against physical ailments like carpal tunnel syndrome. By bringing the keyboard to an angle that is more comfortable for you, this keyboard tray positions your wrists so you can type without strain all day long. Your pace of work won’t be impeded, and you’ll be enjoying your work in a more comfortable environment.
Why worry about just your wrists? The health hazards of a sedentary lifestyle extend far beyond carpal tunnel syndrome. Studies have shown that sitting still for extended periods of time can decrease blood flow and circulation, and lead to large-scale health concerns like obesity and cardiovascular disease. Ergonomic office workstations combat work-related injuries from head to toe. The stand-up desk invites desk workers to switch positions and engage the muscles of the legs while improving circulation of the entire body. If you are seated for a long time, sitting in an ergonomic office chair ensures that your body is positioned properly to support correct alignment of the spine and alleviate pressure on the spinal disks, reducing pain and tension in the back. Ergonomic footrests complete your proper full-body positioning in the office, inviting leg activity and maintaining proper circulation and comfort of the desk worker. To ease stress on the neck and strain on the eyes, dynamic monitor arms bring your work to eye level. Neutral white lighting provided by the Humanscale Element light creates a peaceful ambiance in your work space, eliminating the distractions of buzzing fluorescents and improving your alertness and focus.
