models of The OFFICE
member of Summerland's engineering team underwent Carpal Tunnel surgery
in the early '70s, long before most of the world had even heard of
RSI's. We are particularly attuned to ergonomic considerations
in product development.

describes ergonomically correct placement, within the unit, of
electric, electronic, and mechanical components, as well as functional
Ergonomics is the science that seeks to fit
the job or task to the individual rather than expecting the individual
to conform to the job or task. It
seeks to adapt work or working conditions to suit the worker.
1.Sit with your lower back against the chair and your
feet flat on the floor or on a foot rest.
2.Adjust your table
and chair so that your
elbows are bent at right angles and your forearms are approximately
parallel to the floor.
3.Keep your wrist neutral (straight) by using a wrist rest that is
the same height as the keyboard.
4.Place your mouse on a surface close to and at the same height as
5.Position your monitor directly
in front of you, approximately
an arm's length away, with the
top of the screen slightly below eye level. Tip the monitor
back at an angle similar to that used when reading a book.
6.Use a document holder to position work at eye level.
7.Adjust your lighting and monitor to prevent
glare or use an anti-glare filter.
8.Use adjustable tables and chairs
to correctly position the keyboard or monitor.
