Document holders keep printed materials needed during computer tasks close to the user and the monitor. Proper positioning of document holders depends on the task performed and the type of document being used. Appropriate placement of the holder may reduce or eliminate risk factors such as awkward head and neck postures, fatigue, headaches, and eye strain.
Documents positioned too far from the monitor may require awkward head postures or frequent movements of the head and neck to look from the monitor to a document. Those awkward postures can lead to muscle fatigue and discomfort of the head, neck, and shoulders.
