The Ergo Adjustable Armrest takes the pressure off of your wrist

adjustable armrest

If you spend enough time at your desk, you’re going to start noticing little aches and pains in your shoulders, wrists, and forearms. It’s tough on your body to be doing the same repetitive motions over and over again, especially when you aren’t at the optimal angle. If you have a proper chair, desk height, and support for your arms you should be alright, but making your setup to your exact specifications can be difficult.

If you already have a proper seat like the Zody chair, and a sweet desk, then all you need is a way to support your arms. This Ergo Adjustable Armrest can help you out as it can support up to 24 pounds on its aluminum alloy body. There are three pivot points and two adjustable hinges to make sure you’re all comfy cozy. This should relieve the pressure on your wrist, arm, shoulder, and even your neck. The forearm support is padded, so you won’t need to worry about a hard surface cutting into you over a period of time, or having your arm stick to a plastic or metal surface. Not to say that it won’t happen, but at least it will be on a pillow rather than a hard surface.

There is a built-in mousepad, but it seems relatively small, making this setup better suited for an office setting. Seeing that this is a clamp, you’ll need to be mindful of the fact that this will only fit desks that have a thickness of 3/8 to 1 and 7/8” thick. It’s not terribly expensive at only $52, but whether or not it will be what you need to make your station more comfortable is up to you.
