How to maintain a good posture when working from home

Tim Evans, Access2Comfort

Sitting still in a poor posture for long periods of time puts stress on discs, muscles and tendons. If working at a desk takes up the majority of your time, this can cause long-term problems. Check out our tips for a better workstation experience.


  • Adjust your seat pad height and backrest to suit you
  • Keep your feet flat on the floor or on a footrest
  • Take regular breaks


  • Do not sit with your legs crossed
  • Do not sit with the back of your knees rubbing on the edge of your seat pad
  • Do not hunch or slouch forward in the chair
  • Do not stay seated in the same position for long periods of time
  • Do not sit n the edge of your seat
  • Do not have your keyboard or mouse out of functional reach
