Ergonomic Workspace Solutions, Office Furniture, and Accessories

For many of us, we spend more time sitting at a desk than anywhere else, often at least 8 hours a day, five days a week. Whether you're at your desk only a short time or work long hours, having comfortable, ergonomically designed office furniture, equipment, and accessories, can make a huge difference, which I know firsthand! Ideally, we'd all set up a great, ergonomically designed workspace before we have any injuries or problems, such as RSI, but that's not always the case, unfortunately.

Herman Miller Aeron Chair While an ergonomic desk chair is possibly/arguably the single most important item for an office workspace design implementation, that's only one ingredient. The chair's height and adjustment features, the desk height, the screen height, your keyboard and mouse position and placement, your lighting, etc. all need to be set up and adjusted specifically for your unique size and needs.

Below are some helpful products and companies for anti-glare monitor filters, document holders, ergonomic footrests, Herman Miller Aeron chairs and other ergonomic office chairs and desk chairs, desk chair mats, lighting fixtures to help reduce eyestrain, back supports, cushions, and more. Along the way I've added extra comments regarding some of the products that I use myself every single day at my desk.[*note]
