Telecommuting & Mobile Ergonomics

Whether working at home, the local coffee shop or at another office on campus, it is imperative to set-up your workstation to allow for neutral postures. The cumulative effect of working on laptops, cell phones, and tablets may increase the risk of chronic neck/shoulder injuries and repetitive stress injuries of the hands and wrists. Follow these tips and guidelines to improve comfort when work takes you beyond your Stanford office.
