How will a monitor arm benefit you?

  
    
 

 

A monitor arm enables you to position your screen precisely where you want it and keep it securely in position. Here’s why that matters:

 

  • The right height: Keeping the screen at eye level (for large monitors) or 10-15 degrees below (for small ones) protects against dry eyes and eye fatigue. It’s particularly useful if you wear bi- or varifocals.

 

  • The right distance: Your monitor should be about an arm’s length away from you. Closer forces your eyes to work harder, risking eye strain.

 

  • Reduce vibration: As this study notes, vibration does not have a significant effect on the performance of simple tasks, but it can have a negative effect on complex ones. A monitor arm enables you to take full advantage of the sturdiness of your FRISKA desk.
