Microdesk sloping writing platforms are a unique solution allowing comfortable keyboarding and document reference in line with your keyboard and monitor. The MicroDesk has been specifically designed for keyboard users that need to refer to paperwork or documentation that has traditionally been placed to either side of the monitor or keyboard.
The Microdesk is a clear acrylic, writing slope, with adjustable non slip feet, that fits over your keyboard. The Microdesk allows you to avoid repetitive body twisting whilst writing or referring to documents to the side of the keyboard. As your papers are placed directly in front of you, twisting and neck stretching problems are avoided. This is a fundamental requirement for any ergonomic workstation.
The Microdesk standard is 56cm wide and has a fully height and slope adjustable from 6cm – 13cm at the front and 13cm – 20cm at the back. The Microdesk is completely stable at any height setting, which makes it the most versatile product of its type available today.
The MicroDesk Compact is 43cm wide and has more compact feet for more desk space saving!
Choose the MicroDesk if you do large amounts of data entry or copy-typing.
How to Use
Adjust the height to suit either a flat surface or a keyboard tray. When writing on the Microdesk™, keep elbows within range of your body, no reaching out. Write with a bent elbow not a straight arm. You can access the function and number keys of the keyboard beneath the front edge of the Microdesk™ and rest your forearm comfortably on the platform on top when using the Microdesk™ for writing.
Keep your chair close to the desk and your mouse close to the keyboard. Your back and feet should be well supported, and your shoulders and neck relaxed for work.
The Microdesk™ suits left and right-handed writers. There is a removable lip at the base to stop your papers from sliding off – don’t lean your wrist on the high lip while writing, keep to the side where there is a flat area OR change to the low lip profile. The ruler / line guide is included with all desk models.
Note: Do not slump or stoop as you work. This causes tension in your back, neck and shoulder areas. The Microdesk™ helps relieve this tension through positioning your body well while you work.
