Computer arms can be a valuable tool for your computer that won't cost you a lot of money. Computer monitor arms fill a variety of needs for a variety of work spaces. Consider a few of the things that a computer arm can do for your office:
1. A computer monitor arm allows you to adjust the height and distance of your monitor, creating less strain on your eyes and body.
2. Computer screen arm mounts save desktop space by keeping your monitor off your desk.
3. CRT computer monitor arms allow you to mount an older, non-flatscreen monitor.
4. A computer screen arm mount can allow you to mount multiple monitors if you need to monitor several websites at once.
Regular and CRT monitor arms offer so much versatility for offices of all sizes. Whether you need to save space or want to position yourself in a more ergonomic position, computer monitor arms can give you a way to accomplish your goal.
Decide on what you need for your ergonomic computer screen armBefore you buy, you'll need to know where you plan to mount the computer arms (desk or wall) and how much you'll need to adjust the arm. You'll also want to consider whether you need CRT monitor arms and whether you want to mount multiple monitors on the same arm. All of these factors will determine the computer arm that you'll need.
Weigh your computer monitor for an adjustable LCD monitor armMost computer monitor support arms only support a certain amount of weight safely. Make sure that your monitor falls within the recommended guidelines for weight or you could end up with mounting problems or a falling monitor.
Mount the computer monitor arm in an ergonomic positionOne of the biggest advantages to a computer arm is that you can adjust the monitor into a more ergonomic position, which will cut down on neck and eye strain. Experts recommend mounting the computer directly in front of your chair and to use a swinging arm if you need to move the monitor to communicate with customers.
- Before you mount your monitor, make sure that the computer arm is in the proper position when you are seated in your regular chair. Estimating the placement can result in a monitor that is too high or too low when you are sitting. Your eye line should be 2 to 3 inches below the top of the computer casing.
