Work station setup after rupturing my achilles tendon, for before and after surgery

by Chris C
(Tiburon CA)

Hi, I ruptured my achilles tendon and am having surgery next week. Since I am working at home and will be for a few weeks, I want to make sure my work station is set up properly so I can type, be on the phone, keep my leg elevated, etc. \

Can you recommend anyone who can help set me up, including recommending and getting the right computer peripherals (elevated station, etc)? I live in Tiburon, CA.

Hi Chris.

Sorry, I don't have any suggestions for ergonomics guys for your situation (or any other, for that matter) in the Bay Area.

If you want to keep your leg elevated, all you're really going to be doing is laying on the couch with your laptop on your belly.

Maybe an ergonomics guy can work something around.

Let me know how the Achilles surgery goes. And assuming you get casted, let me know when it comes off. If they don't do a hard cast, let me know that and I can help you recover way faster.

Please reply using the comment link below. Do not submit a new submission to answer/reply, it's too hard for me to find where it's supposed to go.
