Finding the Proper Desk Height

office desk in san joseThe height of your computer desk or office desk in San Jose is the key to your comfort. A desk that’s too low will restrict the movement of your legs, and prevent you from easily seeing your computer screen or reaching items on your desk. A desk that’s too high will make it difficult for you to type on your keyboard. These problems will contribute to eyestrain, headaches, neck pain, back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

To find the proper height for your office desk, sit in your desk chair with your arms resting at your side. Your elbows should be at a 90-degree angle, and your upper arms should be against your sides. If you can’t comfortably rest your forearms on your desk or type on your keyboard at this position, your desk is not at the right height.

While in this position, ask a friend or co-worker to measure the distance from the floor to the underside of your forearm or wrist. This will give you the ideal height for your office desk. If you’re unable to find a desk of that height, you can compensate by adjusting the height of your office chair.
