LSSmith Posted June 17, 2017 Share Posted June 17, 2017 Are there any recommended guidelines for appropriate desk heights/chair heights and distance from one another? I ask because whether I'm using my mouse, or practicing with my wacom tablet, for photo editing, my right arm (the editing arm) becomes painful to the point that even massaging the knots out doesn't help much. I have a conventional desk with a drawer for the keyboard, which is where my wacom tablet lives. My mouse sits on the desk surface adjacent to the monitor. My chair, however, is not a standard issue desk chair. It was available, and I nabbed it for desk duty. The seat is approximately 5 inches below the desk drawer. At present, my schedule doesn't allow me to take frequent breaks of over 10 minutes, so most of my editing is done in one shot over the course of a few hours. I'm wondering if my chair is too tall, or if I'm sitting too close to the desk.....or if I'm doing something else wrong. Any helpful advice will be gratefully received. Thanks, in advance.
