ergonomic Tools for the Home office

If you have to spend a lot of time in your home office, you'll be sitting and typing a lot. So making sure you have the right ergonomic equipment is a really smart move. Otherwise you might end up suffering from a bad back or Repetitive Strain Injury - and have a lot of physiotherapy bills to pay!

This chair is a good option for the home office if you can't afford a Herman Miller Aeron and are not sure about kneeling chairs

It's easy to assemble and is reclinable so it's a good choice if you enjoy gaming as well.

Another great option is the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard.

The DXT is designed to promote a neutral, more vertical wrist posture to relieve unnecessary strain on your hands, arms and fingers while allowing the hand to work with a light touch fingertip hold providing precision cursor control. 

For a full ergonomic solution, use with the Kinesis Freestyle Pro Keyboard.
