Following our recent post on 5 Effective Exercises For the Elderly to Improve a Stooped Posture', we thought it'd be beneficial to extend the conversation to those of us locked in the modern office environment. Stooped posture isn't just a concern for the elderly; it affects many who spend hours at a desk. Today, we'll delve into office accessories specifically designed to support a healthier posture. If you're battling with slouching or leaning towards your screen during your workday, this discussion could be a game-changer. Let's explore how to make your workspace more posture-friendly.

Top Office Accessories to Combat a Stooped Posture

As we spend so much time at work, here are a few office accessories designed to prevent a stooped posture, along with detailed descriptions of how they help:

Adjustable Standing Desks

Adjustable standing desks prevent a stooped posture by promoting movement and reducing sitting time (1). The desks can be easily adjusted to accommodate different heights, allowing users to switch between sitting and standing throughout the day. This encourages better posture and reduces the risk of developing a stooped posture (1). Standing desk heights can either be altered electrically or hand-wound by the user. Motorised standing desks often have preset height buttons for added convenience. To maximise the benefits of standing desks, start by standing for short periods and gradually increase the time spent standing (1). Additionally, consider using an anti-fatigue mat to reduce pressure on the feet and legs while standing.

Standing desks we recommend: 

  1. Herman Miller - Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk
  2. Vari - Electric Standing Desk
  3. Flexispot - E7 Pro Plus

Monitor Stands and Laptop Stands

Monitor stands and laptop stands prevent a stooped posture by promoting proper screen height and reducing neck strain (2). These accessories ensure that screens are at eye level, encouraging better posture and reducing the likelihood of developing a stooped posture. Quality monitor stands and laptop stands on the market offer adjustable height and angle settings, allowing users to customize their setup for optimal comfort (2). When selecting a monitor stand or laptop riser, ensure it can support the weight and size of your device while maintaining stability. Monitor stands are more suitable for stationary desk setups, while laptop rises are suitable for users on the go. However, both are valuable additions to the office.

Monitor stands and laptop stands we recommend:

  1. Herman Miller - Jarvis Single Monitor Arm
  2. Amazon - Basics Single Monitor Stand
  3. Rain Design iLevel2 - Adjustable Height Laptop Stand
  4. Nexstand - K2 Portable and Adjustable Laptop Stand

Ergonomic Keyboards and Mice

Ergonomic keyboards and mice prevent a stooped posture by reducing wrist and shoulder strain (3). These keyboards and mice promote a neutral wrist position and minimise the effort required to use them (3). Ergonomic keyboards often feature a split design or a curved layout, which encourages proper hand and wrist positioning. Ergonomic mice fit the hand's natural curve, reducing pressure on the wrist and promoting better arm and shoulder posture (3). When selecting ergonomic keyboards and mice, consider features products with adjustable palm rests for maximum comfort.

Ergonomic keyboards and mice we recommend:

  1. Logitech - Ergo K860 (Keyboard)
  2. Microsoft - Ergonomic Keyboard
  3. Logitech - MX Master 3S (Mouse)
  4. Microsoft Bluetooth Ergonomic Mouse

Optimising Your Workspace and Habits

These office accessories will only be effective if they fit in a work environment designed for optimal posture support. Regular breaks, stretching, and movement complement the use of office accessories in preventing a stooped posture. Therefore it is crucial to develop a set of healthy habits which will enhance the benefits of these desk accessories.
