Neutral Reach Zone Description
|"The neutral reach zone is the area that can be conveniently reached with a sweep of the forearm while the upper arm hangs in a natural position at the side." (Sanders & McCormick, 1993)
Professor Ergo's Thoughts:
Most people don't realize what a huge difference an ergonomic keyboard tray can make in improving comfort. Think about this: you spend all day reaching for your keyboard and mouse. Every key you type requires use of a muscle, and the farther you need to reach in order to use that muscle, the greater the strain will be. Use of a Humanscale Keyboard Tray enables users to type in the "Neutral Reach Zone."
