Step 1: The Support for Computer Accessories to Avoid RSI Â Epicondilytis-
You need the arms to be relaxed close to the body, and supported at an angle on a surface because adequate support is impossible on horizontal tables, which may cause more pain, lost effort and inability to work. You will notice that your pain will begin to lessen every day, but you should keep a correct body posture and complete physical therapy for your elbow.

- Wood screw: Round head screws -(2) 1 inch #8. Flat head screws -(4) 3/8 inch. Drywall screws -(4) ¼ inch. Flat head screws -(4) ¼ inch with fender washers (4) (or substitute big head screw)
- Wood board- (1) 500 mm (W), 400 mm (L), 12 mm (T). Medium size (make adjustment to waist as necessary)
- Wood scraps - (2) 70 mm (W), 180 mm (L), 10 mm (T).
- Wood wedge scraps - (2) 70 mm (W), 70 mm (L), 20 mm (T).
- Rubber scraps - (2) 70 (W), 70 (L), 5 (T) mm
- - (2) 70 (W), 30 (L), 5 (T)mm
- C-clamps (2)
Step 3: Tools:
- Wood drill bit 5/16” - Metal drill bit 21/64” - 11/64”
- Tape measure
Step 4: Drawing Measurements:
Step 5: Steps of Construction:
Step 6: Preparation of the Wood Scraps
2a. The wood plank: cut a lateral surface at a 45º angle, and drill a hole onto superior surface with 5/16 wood drill bit.
2b. The wood wedge: cut the wood block into a wedge with the hacksaw from 20 mm to 15mm (see photo). Drill three holes onto superior surface at a 8º angle (approx. see drawing measurements), two lateral holes with 21/64 metal drill bit and one central hole with 11/64 metal drill bit.
3. Hammer claw nut: nail the claw nut into the center hole of the wedge shape.
Step 7: Installing of the Wood Scraps
4a. Attach the wood wedge to the wood board using round head screws 1” #8 -
Step 8: Installing of the Wood Scraps
5b. Fixed-pin hinges. Be careful to place the plank in the correct direction.
It should be able to close over the wood wedge (see photo).
Step 9: Installing the Leveling Feet
Could be replaced the system – wood wedge, claw nut and leveling feet, by the leveling feet commons, but the support would be unstable (see photo)
Step 10: Installing the Support Systems
Step 11: Installing the Support Systems
8a. Screw rubber rectangle onto the vertical side of the L-shape, using round head screws ¼ with fender washers or big head screws.
Step 12: Finished !!
10. Use the C-clamps to attach the support to the table.
Step 13: Installing This in Your Workstation
12. Adjust the height using the leveling feet.
