Ergonomic Home Essentials

Sit-to-Standing Desk

This well-built sit-to-standing desk fits on your current desk. When in the low position, it lifts your monitor to eye-level. In the high position, the keyboard tray allows you to rest your arms with very little effort.

Reclining Desk

When neither sitting nor standing are comfortable, but you've still got work to do, recline instead. This is an excellent option for long work days and days when back pain has you down for the count.

McCarty's Sacro-Ease

A wedge-shaped seat support for your car brings your hips above your knees. Changing your pelvic tilt takes the pressure off the sacrum and low back. This one is built to last with excellent fabric, foam, and internal structure. 

Core Balance Disc

Portable pelvic tilt adjustment, brings your hips above your knees and provides instability for core balance and strength while sitting. Less cumbersome than using an exercise ball as a chair, while providing similar benefits.

The Body Cushion

For use during debilitating periods of low-back pain when you just can't find a position of comfort, especially with L4-L5 and S1 disc bulge or herniation. When you need to rest, this investment is a life-saver.

Adjustable Desk Stool

While there are fancier versions out there, this sturdy adjustable stool does the trick just fine. Sit on the edge, and bring your pelvis above your knees for optimal spinal balance while sitting at your desk.
