Working at home shouldn’t mean working from an uncomfortable workspace. You can set up an ergonomic home office affordably today.
According to the 2018 U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, American Time Use Report, 24% of Americans with full-time jobs worked some time from home in 2017. And that’s up from 18% in 2003.
To meet the needs of almost a quarter of the American workforce working from home, the number of affordable ergonomic home office products has increased.
Set up an Ergonomic Home Office Affordably
From ergonomic keyboards to ergonomic chairs, to an ergonomic mouse the options are endless. I’ve taken a look at all the options out there and have put together some ideas for you to set up an ergonomic home office affordably and easily.
The options for ergonomic keyboards continue to grow. The very affordable Perixx PERIBOARD-512 Ergonomic Split Keyboard – Natural Ergonomic Design – Black – Bulky Size 19.09″x9.29″x1.73″ provides comfort for your wrists.
While the Kinesis Freestyle2 Ergonomic Keyboard for PC (9″ or 20″ Separation) (9″ Separation) allows you to adjust the keyboard to allow your arms to be straight in front of your body.
This is a category where the options have grown significantly. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the different styles of ergonomic mouses. I like the Anker 2.4G Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse, 800 / 1200 /1600DPI, 5 Buttons – Black
