Article about the Ergoport ergonomic desktop, which is designed to enable the body to maintain the safest posture while working at a computer terminal. Instead of the body having to adapt to conventional workstation design that causes muscular-skeletal stressing, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, the void is filled between ideal body positioning and the desk. It does so by providing support for the elbows and forearms, which can significantly reduce muscle strain. This support of the arms results in reduced compression of the diaphragm, increasing lung capacity, and in turn increasing oxygen supply to the brain. This can significantly increase productivity in the workplace.
