Virtually everyone has experienced pain and discomfort after a long day hunched over the keyboard. That's because poor posture while typing has been known to cause neck pain and upper and lower back pain, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome and other work-related musculoskeletal disorders.
The fact is, a keyboard placed directly on the desktop creates a number of injury risks. Not only does it force the user to lean forward in an unhealthy, 'hunched-over posture, it causes wrist anchoring and creates contact stress on the work surface. Plus, the potential benefits of many other ergonomic tools like a task chair or monitor arm are rendered useless.
Ergonomists agree that the healthiest typing posture is one that allows the wrists to maintain a neutral or slightly pronated posture at a straight or bent at a slightly downward angle. For that reason, each Humanscale keyboard system allows the keyboard to be positioned anywhere from 0o to a -15o angle. Our unique dial-a-tilt feature allows each user to note the angle at which he or she keys most comfortably, and the system repositions in seconds to accommodate new users.

Access Rehab Inc would like to thank you for furnishing our new clinic in Vaughan. It was pleasure working with the designer whose choice of colour is on point. The customer service and delivery was an excellent experience. I can see now why they are voted one of the top ten office furniture in Toronto. It was a very smooth and executed experience. I would highly recommend The Office Shop Inc.
I worked with DeAnna to purchase new furniture for my office and I could not be more pleased. DeAnna worked me with for several days to finalize the design and we received all our furniture in under three weeks! The delivery team was extremely kind and worked with us to ensure that the set up was exactly what we wanted. I am so happy with all of our new office furniture. I would definitely work with The Office Shop again and I would absolutely recommend them.
Franca and the team at The Office Shop provided a great experience for us as we purchased furniture for our new school spaces. They were patient and helpful and very hands-on as we made many decisions. Much appreciated!
So many thanks for Joanne’s great service. I feel my WRH life is much better. I love my new chair
I ordered a home office chair. They are very patient. They are very knowledgeable on differences of chairs. Prices are equal to similar places.
DeAnna Murphy and the entire Staff at The Office Shop are outstanding! They are responsive, professional, competent, and a pleasure to work with. I recommend them very highly! Dr Richard Leblanc
