Ergonomics, the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them. One of the main issues with standard monitor setups is that you can't adjust its position according to your custom requirements. Thus making your workflow slow and leaving your body in a tired state. This problem affects not just the people working in offices but to a diversity of people. Therefore, to fix this problem we designed an ergonomic customizable monitor stand.

This project was designed to resolve several other limitations such as desk organization and working conveniently at night. Our versatile system was fabricated with laser-cut acrylic parts, LEDs and some simple hardware so that one can easily replicate the concept.

Follow these easy steps to upgrade your setup and increase your work efficiency. Don't forget to drop a vote if you found this fix useful!

Step 1: Good But Not Good Enough

I have always needed a monitor stand as I feel it's a problem that all 'tall' people face, which is, due to our height we need to look down at our screen, which after a couple of hours turns your neck into a stiff knot and worse it spoils your posture. Secondly and most importantly, my work table is rather narrow, and as my keyboard occupies most of the space, I either work over it or I push it aside. In short, it gets very cluttered and working becomes inefficient! And finally, at night I need to unnecessary switch on a light as I fumble on the keyboard due to complete darkness which again can get very frustrating.

I'm sure several of you might have faced some of the exact problems and one day you just need a solution, so what do you do? Well, simple (or so it seemed) you go to Amazon and start looking for a monitor stand. Well as you scroll down the list you suddenly find out that these stands cost a lot more than expected!

Finally the maker instinct kicks in and you make your very own fix to all of these problems. In the following steps I will share the designs of the concept.

Great project, well documented. If my neck hurts even slightly more while using my computer I will certainly be building this for myself.
