Keyboard and mouse

Place your mouse and keyboard within easy reach and on the same surface. While typing or using your mouse, keep your wrists straight, your upper arms close to your body, and your hands at or slightly below the level of your elbows.

Key objects

Keep key objects — such as your telephone, stapler or printed materials — close to your body to prevent excessive stretching.

Headset

If you frequently talk on the phone and type or write at the same time, use a headset rather than cradling the phone between your head and neck. Experiment with various styles until you find the headset that works best for you.
