Today’s Work Environment
Very few people do 100% of their work at ONE desk using ONE computer. And despite the expansion of smart devices, there has been little decrease in the use of laptop computers. Many people take them to work on the go. And most people whom use them, do so for more than a few minutes. Therefore, health and ergonomics need to be portable as well.
A laptop, by itself, does not address many of the things that are important for an ergonomically healthy work environment. And ones skeletal structure was not designed with the laptop in mind. That is why laptops need a little bit of a boost... to help their owner’s posture and overall health.
Benefits of Ergonomic Laptop Desks
The first, and possibly most important benefit, is that a Laptop Desk allows the computer screen to be set at a much more advantageous height. This can vastly reduce strain to the neck, and the development of bad posture in order to adjust to the device.
As well, these desks allow the use of integrated keyboards, which can be placed at a level that reduces stress on the user’s hands, wrists, and shoulders.
Ever sit with a laptop on your lap? Literally? It can get a little hot, can’t it? Laptop desks allow better ventilation which is good for both the laptop and your lap.
