as 4 height of the table and chair der is no single 1 answer 4 dis since v all posses different anthropometric configuration thus needin different hight and width

but d monitor should b in d eye level
and d postuiion of a keyboard and mouse shoud b such dat dey do noT cause strAin du 2 prolonged usage

if needed design ur own computer table 2 suit ur height and comfort and den get it fabricated from a carpenter

as 4 d ergonomically designed chair, u may wan 2 ask ur local orthopedic doc 4 a suggestion (if required turn your doctor around on his chair and check our d brand of chair he is sitting on ;))

mera kutch nahi ho sakta
I am suffering from back pain and my elbow & wrist are more painful ... now a days i cant sit infront of pc more than half an hour,... wrist and elbow starts paining seriously
I had the similar problems.. I had constant pain in my wrist neck shoulders.

My solution was to just get 'casual' with my keyboard and mouse. Instead of keeping it on the desk I kept the mouse and keyboard on my lap :D.
one sure shot solution for wrists is to keep some sort of wrist pad. i used a couple of books below my wrist to raise their level. http://images.google.com/images?q=wrist+pad&sourceid=opera&num=25&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&sa=N&tab=wi

height - your eyes should be just above the top level of your monitor.
back- just keep a cushion to support your lower back. Make sure your back isn't curved but in the 'natural' position.

Tips -
-change your posture regularly. Get up every 15-20 minutes(set a schedular for this) and walk around
-google for chair exercies and strecthing.
-When u r not typing or using the mouse , strech your body and rest those elbows!
-Ultimately I got so sick of sitting in my chair, I turned my monitor around and started sitting on my bed. Now I keep my laptop on the bed and sit on the floor :D . it works great!

Check some furniture from Godrej. They are expensive but the ergonomics is good! Also you can Google for the height n all!
