Are you also forced to work from home, due to Covid-19? Then it is important to pay attention to your workplace. Because with a healthy home workplace, you can work comfortably and efficiently and prevent annoying neck, shoulder or wrist complaints.

To be able to work healthily with your laptop or Chromebook anywhere, we have devised solutions that allow you to quickly and easily create your own healthy workspace at home.

Tips for healthy working at home

Support your body

Sit well back in the chair with your back against the backrest and have your forearms supported while the shoulders droop.

Work in an upright posture

Place the screen straight in front of your body and put the top of the screen at eye level. For your laptop, use a laptop riser and place documents between the keyboard and screen.

Avoid reaching

Place the keyboard and mouse close to your body and put the phone within reach.

Avoid small repetitive movements

Typing is healthier than mousing, so use shortcut keys as much as possible. Move the mouse from the whole arm rather than from the wrist. Use a separate keyboard and mouse when working at your laptop.

Ensure relaxation and sufficient exercise

Limit the number of hours of screen work and take regular short (micro) breaks. The advice is to change your posture regularly and relax/stretch your muscles after every 10 minutes. Frequently alternate sitting with standing and walking. Keep your body fit!
