In our technologically modern times, using the computer has become a necessity most people partake in on a daily basis. However, with this phenomenon comes bad posture and other habits that can be remedied with a few simple alterations.

Many people have pain in their upper and lower back because their computer is not positioned properly. By placing the keyboard near the arms and at approximately waist height, it is much easier to maintain a good posture that will not hurt either your back or arms.
