Are you suffering from Irritable Desk Syndrome?

NEC-Mitsubishi conducted a survey of 2000 adult workers a couple of years ago and found that far from office workers being more mobile they were, in fact even more tied to the office chairs and desks than ever before.

Many had developed bad habits, despite knowing about them and were, as a result suffering from Irritable Desk Syndrome.

Particularly at risk were laptop users who often sit hunched forward in their office seat looking down on their screen, something that no ergonomic office chair will compensate for. What was really needed was to place their laptop on a raised plinth so they could address their workstation correctly and sit properly in their office chair.

You will find two useful pdf documents Irritable Desk Syndrome and Deskology produced by NEC-Mitsubishi that outline the problems they found and their recommended solutions in these two short reports.
