Ergonomics is the applied science that deals with designing and arranging things so that people can use them easily and safely. In the work environment that means that the workstation should adjust to you rather than you adjusting to the workstation. Ergonomics is a partnership between you and your desk set up. The first step is to set up your desk to meet your particular needs, then secondly train yourself to use proper posture mechanics to maintain a good ergonomic work standard. You should be able to find various types of resources here that will help you to accomplish setting up your workstation to assist in being more productive while keeping you safe from injury.
