Work in Comfort with an Acrylic Monitor Stand

Sitting at a computer for long periods can put a strain on the body, creating a range of aches and pains. If you find that after using your PC, you suffer from an aching neck or shoulders, then it may be that your screen is too low, resulting in a hunched posture as you work. For a simple solution to this problem, check out the wide range of acrylic monitor stands on eBay. You are sure to find one to fit your needs and your budget.

How can you tell when a monitor stand is needed?

If you are experiencing discomfort, this is a major sign that something in your workstation needs to change. In fact, even if you are not yet experiencing any discomfort, it is worth checking that your workstation is correctly set up in order to avoid future problems. Neck and shoulder pain can be caused by looking downwards at your monitor, so it is worth checking its height. Ergonomic guidelines say that the top of your monitor should be at around eye level when you are sitting up straight and looking straight ahead. If your monitor is lower than this, then you may benefit from a monitor stand.

What features do acrylic monitor stands have?

The most basic of acrylic monitor stands usually benefit from a simple design comprised of a single piece of moulded acrylic. They are available in various heights and colours, including clear acrylic for an unobtrusive look. Some additional features that you may also find include:

  • Built-in shelves, for storing papers, accessories, or the keyboard when not in use.
  • Drawers for storing stationery and other office essentials.
  • Adjustable height, to allow the stand to be perfectly tailored to your needs.
  • Cable tidies, to keep wires and cables neatly stored behind the unit.
What are the benefits of using an acrylic monitor stand?

By raising your monitor to the correct height, your posture will be improved, reducing strain on your back and neck, and making it less likely that you will develop postural problems. Improving your level of comfort will also help you to work for longer without distractions. Acrylic monitor stands are lightweight and usually require very little, or no assembly. The range of colours available make it easy to find a stand that will coordinate with your home or office décor.
