Seating and Positioning


It is now recognised that it is important to be correctly seated while using a computer. A comfortable working position will help with concentration, quality of work, and reduce the risk of long-term problems such as repetitive strain injury. This is important for all who use computers, and especially so for those with disabilities.

Basic common-sense rules should be applied in the first instance. Chairs should give support, allow the feet to be flat on the floor and be at the correct height in relation to the monitor and keyboard. For people with disabilities further advice and specialised seating may be required. Professional advice from a physiotherapist or occupational therapist should be sought if there is any doubt.

An adjustable computer trolley will allow a workstation to be positioned to suit different users, making effective use of expensive resources.

Ergonomic keyboards, wrist rests and arm supports (QED) can give extra help.

The position of the workstation within a room is important for users with visual difficulties as lighting can have an effect on the clarity of the screen. They may also need to be positioned so that they can be a part of other activities.
