Kids Computer Desk

A recent study by AOL has shown that 46% of our children are on the computer at least four times a week. Of that 46%, nearly 20% are online each day. Children may be the fastest growing Internet audience today, so it is important that you have a good kids computer desk for them to sit at.

When looking to purchase a kid’s computer desk, there are several things you should keep in mind. Children can sit at an adult’s desk, but the ergonomics will be much better if you purchase your child a desk built specifically for their age. Ask the store you are looking in if they have desks specifically built for children your child’s age. Ergonomics is the science of adjusting a workspace (in this case, the kid’s computer desk) so that it will place the body in the most comfortable and healthy position. So a kid’s computer desk built specifically for their age group will help put them in the correct eronomic position.

Once you purchase a kid’s computer desk, there are other factors to consider to keep them in the correct position when on the computer. The monitor should be placed directly in front of your child and not off to the side. The monitor should be at eye level. To achieve this, it may be necessary to place the monitor on a stand. To help prevent the possibility of carpal tunnel, you should make sure your child’s arm is level and not bent when typing or using the mouse. Your child’s knuckles, wrist and the top of their forearm should form a straight line. To achieve this, you may need to adjust the height of their desk chair. It will help if the desk chair that came with the kids computer desk has an adjustable back and arm rests.

It will be important for your child’s long term health to provide them with a healthy desk environment to help prevent back, neck and arm problems.

Have your children vision tested to make sure they are able to see and learn as other kids their age. If you find your child's vision is low, research getting low vision devices to help them.
