Although workstation ergonomics as a science has been around for many years, few people take the time and energy to set up their computer workstation in an ergo.
Gareth Forbes's insight:

This source of information has proved quite helpful and descriptive in describing perfect ergonomics, how to get into a habit of having perfect ergonomic structure, and how to adjust your workspace. Diagrams and pictures are absent but makes up for it in a detailed description of how staining of muscles can cause pain and bad posture when not using a proper ergonomic workspace.

Gareth Forbes's insight:

This Source of information gives a very small amount of information about having a proper ergonomic workstation. With only 4 paragraphs of information it is expected that it is not very detailed and features zero pictures or diagrams. In fact, there is pretty much no information at all and is useless in terms of informing.

The information given in this source is very short and quite basic, without much information on the topic, but more a personal account of using ergonomics, but still extremely vague. However the source does present a detailed Diagram of the perfect ergonomic sitting position.

This diagram follows basic ergonomics, from my experience following these rules will help not only your posture, but tired eyes and wrist cramps.

Gareth Forbes's insight:

The Video featured in this YouTube clip gives great information strictly relating to ergonomics and injuries involved with bad ergonomic practice. 

The pro's of this video are that it has plenty of information, coupled with diagrams and pictures. The video is lengthily but not so that it starts to repeat superfluous information.

The cons of this video is also one of its cons, being so much detailed information, it is too much to read for it being a video. It is more of a slide show than anything else. The video would need to have a narration to be more interesting, rather than a continuous read.
