The keyboard stand combined with a high monitor stand provide a comfortable arm and head position. It can also be moved out of the way, converting back to a regular desk
The lower stand is an adjustable piano / keyboard stand, another instructable had an ironing board, I believe it would provide similar functionality. A weight is spread across the base to increase stability.
Sitting on top of the stand is a Foam Board platform.
The keyboard is a Logitech Wireless Wave and it's curved shape holds it into an upside down Helper Shelf. The keyboard angles at 22 degrees and I find it easy to type with.
The monitor is a Dell with an adjustable height stand. It is on a custom built monitor stand where the lowered monitor is at sitting eye level.
Standing and having the monitor rotated 90 degrees is very useful for working with long documents.
