I currently have 4 different chairs I use in my living room each with different positions to give my body a change, including standing poistion. Even these 5 different positions make my body cry out after around the 6-8 hour mark. Also none of them are really that comfortable so I have to switch up every 30 mins to 1 hour max. I've tried big mid range ergo chairs before but I would still get back pain so it was a huge waste of money. I think changing it up is a much better way. It is either my back or my arms which go and once I hit that wall I am unable to sit comfortably any more at all and every position becomes painful. Getting some excercise in the day can help prevent this quite a bit but I do still feel it creeping in by the end of the day.. The lying on my back/or sitting up in bed in bed I feel would give a bigger difference in the seating arrangements to see me through the rest of the day. This seems a good thread: http://ask.metafilter.com/145464/How-can-I-use-a-desktop-computer-while-lying-down Also the super gorone desk looks like a great idea and not that expensive either. I would like to make some diy solution if possible. So I'd like to hear ideas of how to make some solution on the cheap of the ideas given in those threads. The gorone is probably better than paying to make it myself since I don't have tools either so making would end up worse and probably more expensive. The gorone is affordable enough. I dont have a laptop though so that would be another extra cost. I also saw prism glasses suggested in that thread. I'm thinking maybe have a monitor at the end of the bed on a table and use prism glasses lying down on the bed with mouse and kb on lap. Thoughts?
