Did you recently find yourself working from home? If so, your temporary office space and desk are areas you likely find yourself spending significant time. Research suggests that 72% of office workers spend at least 6 hours per day at their desks.
This amount of time can lead to common musculoskeletal discomforts and injury. The CDC reports 74% of those who sit at desks for more than six hours per day report back discomfort at least twice per week.
Ensuring your workspace is set up in an ergonomically-correct manner can help you avoid a long list of potential musculoskeletal injuries to your back, neck, and wrists. Additional benefits to creating an ergo-friendly environment include improving productivity and comfort.
