Is the monitor directly in front of you?
- Place the monitor in line with and above the keyboard.
Is the monitor at least an arm's length distance or further if possible?
- Reposition the monitor at least arm's length distance, then adjust distance for best visual acuity.
- Increase the display font size, as necessary.
- Consider using computer glasses if necessary.
Is your head/neck upright and balanced over your shoulders when viewing the screen?
- Adjust the screen height up or down until you can view it with a slight downward gaze.
- If you wear bifocals, lower the monitor to avoid tilting your head to look through the lower lens.
- If you have to lean forward to see the screen, move the monitor closer or increase the display font size.
If frequently referring to source documents, are they positioned on a stand and near the monitor to minimize forward leaning or twisted postures?
- Place documents on an angled document holder or booklift positioned between the monitor and keyboard (recommended).
- Place documents on a document holder next to the monitor if space is limited in front of the monitor.
