Good ergonomics is extremely important in the health of your muscles, joints and spine. Preventing back pain and muscle fatigue can be as simple as making some small changes to your workstation – and this includes your desk monitor. Diamond Monitor Mounts are ergonomically designed to help prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the workplace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2013, MSD cases accounted for 33% of all worker injury and illness cases*. Examples of musculoskeletal disorders include, but are not limited to, muscle strains and lower back injuries.
