7 BEST WAYS TO STOP COMPUTER-RELATED BACK PAIN*

Keep your head up

Focus on aligning your head and neck right above your shoulder.

Move your mouse close

Ideally, it should be placed right next to your keyboard so you don’t overreach or twist your shoulder, arm, or wrist when clicking.

Be choosy with your chair

Pick one that allows your lower back to rest against a lumbar support. Then tilt the back of the chair so it’s very slightly reclined.

Sit within reach

Your torso should be about an arm’s length away from the monitor, which should be 5cm to 7cm above eye level.

Plant your feet

Keep them flat on the surface and shoulder-­width apart to quiet tension in your knees and ankles.

Stretch your shoulders

Roll them back and down, and square them over your hips.

Don’t cross your legs

Sitting cross-­legged makes it difficult to keep your spine straight and shoulders squared, and you risk overstretching the muscles around the pelvis, upping your risk of varicose veins by interrupting blood flow.

The Sci-Ryder has been designed to ensure optimal ergonomic posture at all-time whilst in use. I feel that this will give the user the ergonomically required support needed when sitting for a prolonged period of time.
