The ergonomic notebook stands meet the guidelines of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) for ergonomic computer workstations, such as their emphasis on reclining and frequently changing your position as you work.
Both OSHA and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention have spoken out, on the ergonomic problems that laptops deliver to you, the user. Among these problems, the ergonomic laptop stand has solved many, such as the need to raise your laptop screen toward the plane of your eyes and the need to hold your wrists at a neutral posture.
We allow you to achieve this neutral wrist posture, regardless whether you use our riser on top of your desk or off the front edge of your desk. Our notebook platform will safely cantilever your laptop out over the edge of your desk so you can recline as OSHA recommends.
The "lateral movement contact points" allow you to quickly move your laptop out of the way, freeing up your desktop for other tasks. As you can see, we reach your ergonomic goals without asking you to buy a separate keyboard or a monitor.
A typical desk height is 29 inches, which is too high for proper keying and too low for proper viewing. The laptop keyboard is attached to the screen. Raise the screen to correct the viewing angle and your keyboard is too high for proper keying. Lower the keyboard for proper "neutral wrists" and the screen is too low for proper viewing resulting in a hunch.
The Laptop Stand functionally separates the keyboard from the screen, by changing both the user's position and the laptop position. Other stands only change the laptop position.
Furthermore, they were wrong all those years when they told you to sit up straight. Sitting up straight compresses your spine. Think about it, would you drive a car sitting up straight - not for long.
Reclining transfers much of the downward pressure off your spine.
As an added bonus, the airspace created by the angle and open space below your laptop and heat convection reduces laptop heat.
We have sold thousands of these laptop stands and the feedback has been tremendous. Users are claiming to achieve neutral postures, reduction in repetitive stress injuries, less fatigue, carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist pain and neck pain.
We manufacture the best laptop stands on the market, by focusing on ergonomics and healthy postures. The Laptop Stand conforms to OSHA recommendations for healthy computing. OSHA - the federal Occupation Safety and Health Administration is the United States authority on workplace safety.
