Document Holders

A document holder is the perfect product if your work requires you to use documents next to your computer. Data entry jobs require plenty of back and forth between your computer and documents. If you are constantly looking down or side to side at your desk, you might notice neck pain and other discomfort. A holder can provide a healthier, ergonomic viewing position. By reducing the regular movement of your head, less pressure is placed on your spine, neck and shoulders.

Document holders can either be freestanding or attached via a clamp to your desk. Place it between your keyboard and monitor at an ergonomically friendly angle of 40 to 60 degrees - you'll quickly notice the benefits of using a holder if you work at a computer for hours at a time!

Document Holder FAQs

What is an ergonomic document holder?

A document holder is a product used to keep a printed document needed for tasks on the computer close to the user and the monitor. It's usually made up of a stand on an angle between 40 and 60 degrees. The user is able to place their document on the stand close to their monitor so that they can refer to both while working with minimal head movement and strain on the neck, shoulders and spine.

Do I need a document stand for my monitor?

If the nature of your work requires you to use loose papers or a book and your computer simultaneously, a document holder will be beneficial for your posture long term. Most computer users work with the loose papers placed flat on their desk next to their computer. To refer to the paperwork and back to the monitor, they must bend their neck downwards and twist repeatedly, creating an awkward posture and causing eye strain. A document holder will avoid the repetitive slouching and twisting of your neck, as well as keep the documents and monitor at the same distance from your eyes to reduce eye strain, ultimately increasing productivity.

Where on your desk should you place the holder?

The style and design of the document holder will determine where you should place it on your desk. Most document holders with a stand or clamp can sit in any position that is comfortable for you, either between your keyboard and monitor, next to your keyboard, or next to your screen. Make sure to place it in a position that will minimise the need to turn your neck or strain your eyes while you work. You may need to test different positions and desk layouts before you find the best placement for you. Other document holders are designed to slip over your keyboard so that you can place your documents above your keyboard while you type, reducing the need to turn your head to the side.

How do you assemble a holder?

Assembling a document holder depends on the style and design of the product. Most holders will come already assembled, some will need the stand to simply be clicked into place, whereas others may need a piece to be screwed in place. Just refer to the instructions that come with the product to ensure you assemble the holder correctly.

What kind of document can the holder be used for?

Holders can be used for any kind of document, whether you have to enter data on loose sheets of paper or need to refer to a bound research journal. Some stands come with clips to hold pages in place. If you would like to use a heavier book, make sure to select a stand that is able to hold more weight with a thicker ledge to keep the book from sliding off.
