Your work area should have enough illumination.

Choose the proper desk and chair and adjust their height to fit your posture when operating.

When sitting on the chair, sit straight and keep a good posture. Adjust the chair’s back (if available) to support your back comfortably.

Place you feet flat and naturally on the floor, so that your knees and elbows have the proper position (about 90-degree) when operating.

Put your hands on the desk naturally to support your wrists.

Adjust the angle/position of the AIO PC to have an optimal view.

Avoid using your PC in a place where discomfort may occur (such as on the bed).

The AIO PC is an electrical device. Please treat it with great care to avoid personal injury.
