Right now I’m in the middle of a dilemma. My work area in my in-home office is downright uncomfortable. I started to notice that my back and neck pain was worse when I had a long day at my computer. Of course some of that is caused by the lack of movement when you’re sitting still for long periods, but I learned a lot when I worked for a physical therapy office about how your equipment can cause problems.
I’ve checked to make sure I’ve got everything set up ergonomically correct, so now I have to look at the equipment itself. Lately I’ve been having pain on the heel of my hand and wrists where they rest on the table. In looking for a solution I ran across some sheepskin products that look like they might be helpful. I’ve tried the gel filled wrist rests and they are OK. After awhile, though, the fabric covers on them usually start to irritate my skin. The sheepskin rest looks like it wouldn’t have that problem.
The other thing is that my chair is uncomfortable. I even stole the office chair from my husband’s office trying to find something that was comfy. It’s better, but after sitting for extended periods I still have tired butt (TB) and my back is not comfortable from the improperly curved backrest. A sheepskin seat pad might be the answer for TB, but in all honesty I think I need an entirely different seating arrangement to take care of the uncomfortable backrest.
If your office is your car you might want to consider sheepskin seat covers to make all those hours behind the wheel more comfortable.
