Individuals who read documents or execute data entry are more prone to repetitive stress to their neck, upper back and shoulders due to the constant motion when looking down or to the side at stacks of paper.  One way to minimize risk is to utilize a document holder.  This will allow the papers to be placed in a proper location and the alignment will greatly reduce poor posture.

We offer several types of document holders.  For this blog we have identified a few varieties. We will express both the pros & cons so you can make an informed decision.
