Workstation ergonomics

I’m working at home full-time now, so the ergonomics of my home office are important. I just came across [Cornell University’s ergonomics pages][1] which provide a whole bunch of info. For example, I don’t think I would’ve considered a “negative-tilt” keyboard tray, but their diagram makes perfect sense. There’s a company that makes nice looking hardwood ergonomic desks. Notice how the first picture there has a negative tilt keyboard tray? Cool. Sadly, I’m not in a position to replace my desk, because my current desk holds my (rather lonely) music gear. However, maybe I can augment my current desk to be a bit better for me.

And this lousy chair should really go.
