Guest post by self-proclaimed nerd gamer Kiera Walters
I’ll admit it. I’m a nerd. I embrace the geek title and everything that it entails. I like comic books, Science Fiction, and superhero movies. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, I will unequivocally state, now that I know better, that I refuse to sacrifice my own health for my nerdy habits.
Several years ago I began to play World of Warcraft. I know, I know, it’s an addiction. The WoW world is so robust and captivating that it’s easy to get sucked in. For awhile there I was playing for several hours every single day, and I began to develop a terrible pain in my lower back and neck. I couldn’t figure out what it was from, though I should’ve known!
I began getting massages once a month from a massage therapist friend of mine, and after remarking on how tight my shoulder muscles were, she asked me if I was a gamer. Now, I don’t wear WoW t-shirts or superhero capes to my massage appointments, so the only way she knew was because of the very specific type of muscle strain that I was presenting.
My friend suggested that I look into improving my gaming posture by investing in an ergonomic gaming desk. This was a relief. At first I thought she was going to suggest that I give up gaming all together, which I’m not really willing to do. After all, gaming is such a great way for me to burn off stress at the end of my day.
Since my massage therapist friend made this recommendation to get an ergonomic gaming desk, I’ve checked a few of them out. The thing about the Mobo that impresses me most is that it is portable and it doesn’t take up much room. The fact that I can clamp the keyboard tray onto my chair, without actually spending money on an entirely new desk, has been quite an incentive for me to try it out.
I’m not an expert on ergonomics, but I feel like it’s crucial to invest in the long-term health of our bodies, no matter what we do with our free time! Nerdy gamers like me, IT people, even regular old office folk can definitely benefit from an ergonomic gaming desk. After all, it’s not the “gaming” part of the desk that’s important, it’s the ergonomics.
Do you have an ergonomics story to share? We’d love to hear it!

In today’s workplace, the average person spends the majority of their day banging away at a keyboard. Increasing the stress and strain placed on the muscles, tendons and joints of the neck, back, shoulders and arms. Over time, this stress and strain can lead to a host of severe Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs) such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Luckily, there’s a way to remain comfortable and productive. Maintaining a neutral body position while seated and working at a computer is essential for slowing and alleviating the symptoms of RSIs.

Online Gaming, web surfing, blogging and social networking have become some of our favorite pastimes. But long hours at the keyboard have lasting negative effects on our bodies.

The Mobo is the healthier way to play. Not only can the Mobo help protect you from injury, by naturally encouraging a healthy neutral body position, it can also provide the comfort you need to stay in the game longer. The Mobo eliminated awkward stretching r reaching for computer controls by bringing the keyboard and mouse to you.

The Mobo is a heavy duty computer accessory backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Today, 62 percent of households in the United States have at least one computer. And not only is that number growing, but the amount of time spent at a computer, per session, is increasing as well.
Millions of computer users are at risk of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs), which are painful, sometimes debilitating injuries. RSIs can worsen over time if not addressed early. Experts agree that poor posture and improper workstation arrangement are the root causes of RSIs.
Luckily, preventative measurers are out there. Research has shown that keeping a neutral body position while seated at the computer is essential for slowing and alleviating the symptoms of RSIs. With the Mobo Ergonomic Computer Station, you don’t have to think about maintaining a neutral body position. The Mobo naturally positions you in a comfortable and healthy neutral body position.
A neutral body position is a comfortable working posture in which the body’s joints are naturally aligned, effectively reducing the stress and strain on the muscles, tendons, and skeletal system and in turn, reducing your risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder or repetitive strain injury. The U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) established the following guidelines for maintaining a neutral body position while working at the computer:

One in three computer users suffer from overuse syndromes. These syndromes include carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and hyperactive levator scapulae as well as a host of other musculoskeletal disorders, including RSIs.

What type of chairs will the Mobo mount to?
The Mobo will mount to most chairs with open or T-shaped arms up to 4″ wide and 2-1/2″ thick.
What tools are needed to install the Mobo?
Installs easily with a phillips head screwdriver .
How long it does it take to install the Mobo?
10 -15 minutes. Make sure to read the installation instructions for important adjustment and easy installation tips.
Will the Mobo work on wheelchairs?
No. The Mobo may mount to some wheelchair models, but it makes the wheelchair too wide to pass thru most doorways and may interfere with normal wheelchair operation. Therefore, it not recommended.
Is the Mobo strong enough to support heavy laptops?
Yes! The Mobo is made from high quality industrial polymers (polycarbonate and ABS) to provide exceptional strength. While we do not recommend using the Mobo with more than 15-20 pounds, it has been tested with the weight of up to three laptops at the same time.
Will the Mobo work with wired keyboards?
Yes. However, some keyboards may require a USB extension cable to easily reach the Mobo tray. We intend to offer USB extension cables on our website very soon. In the meantime, USB extension cables are inexpensive and are available wherever computer accessories are sold (online, big box retailers, etc.).
What is the size of the keyboard tray?
The keyboard tray surface is textured plastic and measures 22″x12-1/2″ and is slightly arched away from the user.
What are the specs of the Mouse pad area (size, material, etc.)?
The Mobo includes both left and right mouse pads that attach to your chair. The useable mouse pad areas measure 7-1/4″x11″ each and have a black nylon (fabric) covered neoprene mouse pad. The tray is arched inward on each end to allow you to shift it left or right to provide the maximum useable mouse pad area.
Can the Mobo fit chairs with arm rests thicker (taller) than 2-1/2″?
The short answer is yes. However, you will have to purchase additional hardware from your local hardware/home improvement store. The Mobo requires 8 screws to mount correctly. To allow the Mobo to fit as many existing chair configurations as possible, it comes with 4 different lengths of screws. The Mobo uses 8/32 screws and includes 8 each of the following lengths: 1-1/2″, 2″, 2-1/2″ & 3″. So, to fit a chair with arms thicker than 2-1/2″ you would need to buy 8/32 screws in lengths 1/2″ longer than the arm thickness (example: 8/32×4″ would fit an armrest that is 3-1/2″ thick).
Do you have a list of chairs that are compatible with the Mobo?
No. The shear number and variety of chairs available, make this task extremely difficult. The Mobo was engineered to fit as many existing chairs as possible. First of all, the chair must have armrests. The Mobo will mount to chairs with T-shaped or open armrests up to 4″ wide and 2-1/2″ thick. There is an adapter that allows the Mobo to be installed on chair armrests with extreme curves. For more information,view the installation instructions.
How does the keyboard tray attach to the mouse pad armrests?
The keyboard tray does not actually “attach” to the mouse pad arms. It simply sits on top and has rubber feet that provide friction and keep the tray from shifting accidentally. This allows the tray to be easily and quickly removed or repositioned for comfort.
The keyboard tray also features sides that curve inward to allow for full mouse pad use on one side or the other. When the Mobo is installed, the keyboard tray spans between the two mouse pad armrests. The keyboard tray can be shifted left or right to offer the full mouse pad area for either side.
