This is one example of an ergonomically correct workstation. Some people
would be more comfortable with slight adjustments such as tilting the keyboard
a bit or removing the armrests from the chair. But this picture shows many
of the important pieces of a good workstation.
Sitting with the ears directly above the shoulders, which in
turn are over the hips, helps prevent back strain. Placing a lumbar pillow or
roll against the small of the back provides extra support.
