I have made the assumption that the monitor can be raised or tilted back sufficiently to avoid undue flexion of the neck. Therefore, addressed the issue on how to raise the keyboard so that flexion of the lower back is avoided, which the keyboard table is able to achieve.  

 

When using this device a trackball mouse and / or small keyboard would give sufficient space for operation of keyboard and mouse at this working height (thus you would need to factor this into the costings)

 

At the end of the day it is a tradeoff, 1) you have this device it is cheaper but there are more variables in terms of adjustments and possible requirement for 1 or more accessories or 2) you get an electric desk, that can be programmed to a specific height, and equipment heights will then remain constant when seating or standing.

 

 

A sensible cost benefit analysis to justify purchase is required!

Thank you for this Duncan. I am not sure if this gadget does address the issue that the monitor would need to be raised significantly if you were standing working at this height (which you would achieve if you had an electronically height controlled desk) and there is nowhere for the mouse so I guess this  would need to be  integrated into the keyboard. Please correct me if my impression from the picture is incorrect.

 

Thanks

Hi Sue,

 

Following on to the keyboard raiser – the multifunctional lightweight desktop table is a very good option. Full details can be found at http://www.badbacks2go.co.uk/MFDesk

 

This is a very good item, reasonably price
