Neck, back, and wrist pain are common complaints from people who regularly use a computer. To help these people become more comfortable and less susceptible to long-term problems, this site offers many suggestions for proper computer ergonomics. Some of the best tips are on office setup, such as positioning the monitor, keyboard, and chair. Mobile computing can be ergonomically worse than at a desk, so information about laptops is also given. Some products that promote ergonomics and their effectiveness are discussed. The health section explains the causes of different types of discomfort, and illustrates some stretches that can help. One topic that is rarely addressed is ergonomics for children, but this site covers it well. Adaptations for the disabled will be put online in the future.
