How to choose a monitor mount?
How will the monitor arm mount attach to my desk?
If you choose a desk-mounting monitor arm, many models come in either a grommet or c-clamp version.
The c-clamp is the most popular version because it attaches to the back of your desk without the need for you to drill any holes into your workspace. If you choose the c-clamp version you will want to ensure that your desk has a deep enough lip so the clamp can attach properly to your desk.
If your desk will not allow for a c-clamp, then you will need a grommet mount. Grommet mounts need to be mounted through a hole in your workstation surface. Some desks come with a pre-made grommet hole, but if yours did not, then you may need to permanently modify your desk.
Some monitor mounts use a universal mounting system, eliminating theneed to choose between a c-clamp or grommet mount.

Tips on setting up your new ergonomic workstation
Standing desks can be great for your health and that is why you want to ensure you are using yours properly to eliminate any stress on your body. Here are some tips to keep your workstation ergonomically sound:
Desk Height: Set the height of your desk so you are able to type on a keyboard with your arms rested comfortably at your sides (let your shoulders hang naturally), and with your hands at or just below your elbow
Monitor: Next, raise your monitor to be at eye level so you are not tilting your neck up or down while you work. You want a slight tilt to your monitor, about 10 to 20 degrees. Be sure you are a safe distance from your screen; you want to be no less than the distance from your middle finger to your elbow away from your monitor.
