Its hard to think of summer ending and long evenings disappearing into short, dark days. But every year inklings of back to school haunt families around cottage dining tables. Buying a well designed desk lamp is an excellent long-term investment for your young student. Desk lights are now designed with LED technology so they have long life spans that will take your student through to college and beyond, so worth the extra investment.
Anything in the physical environment that affects the fit between a person and their work is ergonomic by nature. A good fit includes lighting, which is as important as any other work space tool. In the absence of good light, people will hunch, squint, and frown over their work, without realizing it. By reducing eyestrain and allowing people to maintain healthy posture, proper lighting can improve productivity and reduce tiredness.
Well-designed task lighting have the on-off controls within easy reach of the individual; the individual can also control the projection of the light (to reduce glare on the monitor screen and the surface) and the heat generated isn’t scalding to the touch.
Ideally, a task light provides “control within control,” so not only is the on/off switch easy to reach for, but also the amount and position of the light. When available, brightness controls should have a generous range.
