Document Holders


Twisting the neck in order to read documents that are lying on the desk can be avoided by using a document holder. Placing the holder either in-line with the monitor or right beside the monitor can greatly reduce neck stress.


In-line document holders

Placing the document holder so that it is in between the keyboard and monitor, such that they are “in a line”, is the optimum arrangement of a document holder. This position completely eliminates neck twisting (turning the head back and forth between the monitor and the document). Instead you just have a small amount of up and down movement.


However some desks have space limitations that prohibit the use of such document holders. In those cases a free-standing document holder can be used. The recommended position of a free-standing document holder is right beside the monitor, reducing the amount of neck twisting as you look between monitor and document.


Other things to consider when looking at document holders:

  • Writing on the source document
  • Referencing books or binders
  • Frequently moving the document holder

Note: Check the Book Holder page for other possible solutions.
