A correctly positioned computer screen is crucial for good posture.  Here’s how to do it.

How high should your computer screen be?


– Sit at your desk.

– Adjust your chair so that your elbows are level with your desk.  Your forearms should be able to rest comfortably on the desk.

– Position your screen directly in front of you.  You shouldn’t need to twist or turn to see the monitor.

– The centre of your screen should be roughly eye level.  If you’re looking down or leaning forwards to see  it, it is probably too low.

– Most screens are adjustable so you should be able to change the height pretty easily.  You can also rest the screen on a box or two, reams of paper or on a special monitor stand.


And there you have it – a correctly positioned screen!
