Ergonomic Monitor and Mouse

This project will Ergonomically "renovate" your office space effortlessly!  Spring Cleaning?  Don't throw away those old phone books and that page a day calendar you stopped using midway through the year, use them in this quick and easy process that's actually good for your well-being! Monitor top at eye level and mouse raised in minutes...

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Old phone books, old page-a-day calendar, optional poster board or typing paper and personal swag (stickers, buttons, pins).

Step 2: Ergonomic Mouse

Ergonomic Mouse raises your wrist to the proper elevation on an old page-a-day calendar to avoid strain.

Step 3: Monitor Riser

Decide what height is best for you. The top of your monitor should be at eye level. Use 1, 2, or 3 books to suit your needs.

Step 4: Optional Finishing Touches

Optional: After choosing your selected height, you can cover the books with a piece of poster board or typing paper (using a couple pieces of tape to keep it in place). And, if you so choose, you can decorate with selected swag so that when you’ve been looking at your monitor so long, to avoid eye-strain, you can admire your swag. Your body will love you!

    An interesting solution. I use two boxes filled with unnecessary CD's and DVDs.

    That's a good use for support! I've seen some pretry neat things done with thise old CDs as well...from crushed up on a disco ball to being outdoor ornaments for a tree; even used to make coasters. So many ways to repurpose things.

    cool, I didn't realize the mouse should be raised like that. would be cool to see a tall mouse hack.
