We’ve rounded up the best ergonomic gifts you can get your father on this special day:
One of the biggest challenges of working remotely is setting up a workstation that allows you to work seamlessly throughout the day. If your dad spends hours at his desk each day, a good ergonomic office chair is the perfect gift.
Most ergonomic office chairs comes with adjustable headrests designed to reduce back and neck pain. Not only does a good ergonomic chair supports his weight and body efficiently, but it also allows him to work with minimal distractions for a more productive workday. If you’re looking for the best ergonomic office chair, you’ve come to the right place. Ergomeister’s office chairs are a favourite among work-from-home employees. Its fully adjustable design is made to support users of all weights and sizes.
2. Sit-Stand Desk
How about a sit-stand desk to get him to minimise prolonged sitting while working? According to experts, the most ergonomic way to work involves a combination of sitting and standing. A sit-stand desk promotes healthy movement and allow the user to take a break from sitting, encouraging users to stand and stretch from time to time.
A sit-stand desk will also lower the risk of weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses. People who have been using standing desks swear by the added energy each day. A quality sit-stand desk comes with a portable option so you can move them across your office.
3. Ergonomic Keyboard
Not only do they work great for work-from-home dads, but ergonomic keyboards are also a gamer dad’s go-to choice. A good ergonomic keyboard can make typing (and gaming!) a lot easier and more comfortable.
Ergonomic keyboards have elevated wrist support that keeps arms and hands in proper position while typing. The sloped design minimise strains caused by uncomfortable typing position. Most ergonomic keyboards also have quiet keys perfect for working (or gaming) late at night.
4. Adjustable Laptop Stand
A must-have office accessory, laptop stands are the perfect gift for hard-working office dads. Laptop stands can be adjusted based on height so that you can place the screen at eye level. This will reduce the strain of looking down or up while working.
Studies have shown that too much looking down can cause serious pressure on your neck and shoulders. Moreover, elevating your laptop will improve airflow keeping it cool during usage.
5. Therapy Lamp
Is your dad’s office lacking natural light? Don’t let him work in the shadows. Get him a good therapy lamp, because having a better source of light can help with productivity. A therapy lamp is crucial for keeping a productive atmosphere in your home office. It will illuminate key task areas and reduce eye strain. So if your dad’s office is on the dark and gloomy side, a therapy lamp might just be the perfect Father’s Day gift.
6. Monitor Arms and Riser
Monitor height is a very important factor when it comes to creating a good ergonomic environment. Many people don’t realise that they need to raise or lower their monitors to prevent their necks from craning down or up all the time. Because if vision isn’t properly adjusted, one can easily strain their eyes that may cause Computer Vision Syndrome. Monitor arms and risers are often bought along with standing desks, as these items complement well with each other. Giving users the ability to adjust the height of their workstation.
7. Ambidextrous Mouse
Is your dad a leftie? Then perhaps an ambidextrous mouse is the perfect gift. It allows the left-handers to reach the buttons easily in a comfortable angle. Many ambidextrous mice in the market also come in wireless options.
8. Anti-Fatigue Mat
An anti-fatigue mat is the best gift to give people who are already using a standing desk. So, if your dad likes to stand while working, these handy mats can prevent injury by providing a comfortable place to stand for long periods of time. While not 100% necessary, this extra luxury will make standing desks more convenient to use.
9. Ergonomic Mouse Pad
Help your dad avoid painful and costly writs injury from using the mouse at a bad angle. An ergonomic mouse pad has a built-in wrist aid. The soft plush surface allows the user to rest their wrists as they work or surf the net.
10. Noise-Canceling Headphones
