How to check your monitor is at the correct height

  • Business Just Got Personal

    Neck & shoulder pain is primarily caused by incorrect monitor height and placement. Adjustable risers and stands provide both a safe and simple way of elevating comfort levels.
  • 1. Position top of monitor at eye level

    Your natural line of sight is slightly downward, this position ensures you don’t need to hold your head higher than necessary, ensuring for a natural and relaxed neck and shoulder position.
  • 2. Tilt monitor slightly upward

    Tilt the screen so that the base is slightly closer to you, this ensures you can see the whole screen without needing to lower your head.
  • 3. Sit or stand at arm length from the monitor

    Eyestrain can be suffered when too close to the monitor. You can be slightly further back when using larger monitors.

If you use a larger monitor, you can position your monitor so that the top of the viewing area is sllightly above above eye level to avoid having to tilt your head forward to see the bottom area of the screen.  A monitor that is too low is  often the cause of neck pain.  Likewise, if your monitor is too high you will find yourself tilting your head back which can lead to shoulder pain.

  • 4. When using two monitors position them side by side

    Make sure each screen is the same distance from you to avoid neckstrain.
