When you’re stretching and twisting at your desk you can strain your spine, neck and shoulder areas. Performing simultaneous keyboard and paperwork activities with poor body positions leads to troublesome aches and pains. This is why physiotherapist Sarah Mahoney developed the MicroDesk inline writing platform. With a MicroDesk above your keyboard your papers are directly in front of you so you can read, type and write without stretching and straining.

MicroDesk MD-SS Regular writing platform is for use with a flat desk top. Step MicroDesk Writing Platform is for use with a keyboard tray or on a level desk when monitor position is low.

Other benefits include:

  • Stops aches and pains caused from twisting when writing to the side of the keyboard
  • Centres paper work in line above the rear of the keyboard
  • Makes a stable, adjustable work surface - excellent for writing and reading with computer work
  • Continuous access to keyboard as you write
  • Clear, transparent surface
  • Organizes your workspace
  • Increases work comfort and decreases muscle strain
  • Comes with a non slip ruler/guideline with all models
