Forearm Supports

Many individuals who work at desks or other types of surfaces may work more effectively with upper body support, particularly support of their forearms. Forearm supports are products that typically attach to a worksurface and are adjustable. Essentially, they are armrests that attach to a work surface. There are several different types that adjust to a variety of heights and positions. Forearm supports are used to alleviate pressure on a worker's neck, back, arms, and wrists.
