How a Monitor Mount Can Improve Your Workplace Ergonomics

Whether you’re part of the huge section of the workforce that is spending more time than ever working from home, or you simply want your office space more comfortable, a monitor mount could be the missing piece you’ve been looking for. These strong, movable arms elevate your monitor and make it easy to customize your workspace to meet your needs. There are several ergonomic benefits to using a monitor mount. Here is a look at some of the biggest advantages. 

Ergonomic Benefits of Monitor Mounts

Reduced Neck StrainAtdec Monitor Mounts- HealthPostures

Without a mount, most monitors aren’t positioned to meet eye level. That means that to look at the screen and work, you must bend your neck up or down. Although that position may not feel bad for a few minutes, doing so for hours every day can lead to significant neck soreness and stiffness. Keeping your neck in an unhealthy position for such a long time can even cause permanent damage to the cervical spine. A monitor mount allows you to position your screen at a level to keep your neck protected.

Reduced Eye Strain

Eye strain is always a risk when your job requires you to look at a computer screen for eight hours a day. Although there are glasses that can reduce the blue light, one of the most impactful things you can do is to keep your monitor in the right position. A monitor mount lets you put your screen at the most ergonomically correct position, which is about arm’s length from your face. It also lets you slightly tip the top of the monitor away from you. This position will ease eye strain and the associated symptoms. 

Options for Sit-Stand Work

Ergonomic experts laud the benefits of standing desks and urge workers to switch up between sitting and standing to work. Without a monitor mount, every change means readjusting your space, which is tedious and reduces efficiency. A monitor mount lets you adjust your screen positioning by just sliding the screen up and down as needed, for a quick transition.
