Posted by Anthony Taneo on Apr 10th 2023

If you experience soreness in your neck and upper back after long periods of using a desktop computer, a monitor arm can be an effective solution.

Yes, we are aware. Monitor arms are unusual components. If the design is not done properly, the products can appear similar. Investing in a good monitor arm can reduce discomfort throughout the workday, making it possible to concentrate better on tasks.

What are monitor arms? How can you identify a quality one? How could these items fit into your ergonomic lifestyle? Let's examine this.

An overview of monitor arms, including their purpose and function.


A monitor arm is used to secure a monitor in place. Your monitor should be placed at an arm's length from you.  Dual monitor arms are also available. The height of the surface should be such that it allows you to maintain an upright posture with your neck in a neutral position. When your monitor is placed on your desk, you may find yourself leaning forward and straining your spine. A monitor arm enables users to control the distance between their monitor and keyboard, accommodating for changes in posture throughout the day, such as when moving from sitting in a chair to standing at an adjustable desk.

Monitor arms enable you to rotate your screen for a different perspective on your work. To view your screen with your neighbor, simply swivel it into position. Working with two screens can be beneficial for organizing your workspace and provide better ergonomics; adding arms for both monitors will help you to manage your visual workspace more efficiently.

Using a desk mount for your monitors can help save space in your workspace. This can help ensure there is enough room on your desk for other items, and ergonomic accessories such as a split keyboard or laptop and tablet stand that can also be used to hold documents, can be added to further improve the comfort of working while typing. If you work in low-light conditions, this can enable you the space and opportunity to add ergonomic desk lighting.

Do Monitor Arms provide any benefit?

Investing in a monitor arm can help you optimize the ergonomics of your workspace. Monitor arms offer adjustable height and positioning for personalized comfort when viewing your monitor. They also help reduce eye strain, neck pain, and fatigue by creating a more ergonomic work setup. Additionally, monitor arms can help free up desk space, allowing you to create a more organized workspace.

Overall, dual monitor arms are a great way to improve the ergonomics of your workspace and help you stay comfortable throughout the workday. Monitor arms provide an adjustable viewing environment that can help reduce eye strain, neck pain, and fatigue from long hours in front of the computer. Additionally, they help free up valuable desk space while helping to keep your workspace organized.

Monitor arms are a great way to create an ergonomic work environment, but there are other options available. A monitor riser can be used to elevate your monitor, reducing the need to crane your neck while working. Monitor risers come in various sizes, allowing you to choose one that fits your monitor’s size and weight. In addition, adjustable keyboard trays can be attached to the underside of your desk to offer an adjustable typing angle and reduce strain on your wrists.

Ultimately, it’s important to assess your work environment and determine which ergonomic accessories best meet your needs. The right setup can help you be more productive, comfortable, and healthy while working.

What type of monitor arm would be best for you, electrical or mechanical?

When it comes to choosing between an electric and a mechanical monitor arm, there are a few things to consider. An electric monitor arm is often more expensive than a mechanical one, but it offers some advantages. Electric arms can be adjusted with the push of a button, so you don't have to manually adjust the arms each time you want to change the position of your monitors. In addition, electric arms are more stable than mechanical arms, so they can hold your monitors more securely.

On the other hand, a mechanical arm is often less expensive and simpler to use. They may not be as stable as electric arms, but they are usually sufficient for most users who don't need to make frequent height adjustments.

In conclusion, both electric and mechanical monitor arms have their advantages and disadvantages. Ultimately, the best option for you depends on your preferences and budget.

Monitor arms can provide the perfect solution for those looking to improve their workspace ergonomics and free up desk space. With a variety of models and styles available, it is easy to find the right monitor arm for your needs. Depending on your preferences and budget, you can choose between an electric or mechanical arm. Electric arms may be more expensive but offer the convenience of being able to adjust quickly with the push of a button. Mechanical arms are usually more affordable and simpler to use but may not be as stable as electric arms.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Monitor Arm.

A good monitor arm should be adjustable, allowing users to move the screen to find the most comfortable working positions. The object should have a swift-moving capability instead of needing to be screwed in and out. Do you want to make these movements swiftly?

The arm should be able to support a substantial amount of weight. The desk anchor should be secure, preventing the risk of any falls. It is important to be able to remove the arm with ease. A vice clamp is a suitable option as it provides a secure attachment and can be removed easily.
