Eliminates Twisting at the Neck and Torso - The Microdesk is designed to be positioned inline, above the rear edge of the keyboard and below the monitor. By placing documents and papers directly in front, users no longer need to twist at the neck or waist when reading reference materials or making notations.
- Positioned above the rear edge of the keyboard, the Microdesk reduces the potential for pain and discomfort in the upper back and shoulders. By allowing users to keep papers and books well within the comfort zone, forward reach is significantly reduced. As well, by making use of the space between the keyboard and monitor for paperwork, users can be sure other key tools (such as the mouse, numeric keypad or phone) remain as close to the comfort zone as possible.

Facilitates Good Upper Body Posture
- The adjustable slope (from a negative incline of 12° to a significant positive incline of 20°) allows users to position materials at the most comfortable angle for reading, handwriting, or glancing at reference materials. The Microdesk significantly reduces the risk of upper back and neck strain caused by repeatedly bending the neck or hunching over the desk.
Adds Usable Work Space
- This secondary worksurface adds usable working space to the Comfort Zone that is not typically available; i.e. an elevated area between the back of the keyboard and the bottom of the monitor. For many users, a sloping worksurface is easier and more comfortable to work on than the flat surface of the desk.
