These days, it’s very likely that you will spend a good portion of your time using some sort of electronic device. Whether it is an iPad, a smart phone, a laptop, or a standard desktop, nobody can deny the importance and the need people have to use any of these as a means of communication or getting work done. Despite the fact that the popularity of iPads and smart phones is constantly on the rise, they still aren’t able to fully replace the conventional desktops and laptops.
Regardless of the fact whether you’re using a desktop or a laptop, you surely aren’t spending just a few minutes on it every time you use one. In fact, recent studies have shown that the average person spends at least 2 hours per day on some kind of gadget. However, if your job requires you to sit in front of a computer or laptop to get it done, then those studies mean nothing to you and you need to do everything you can do in your power to make that time spent in front of the screen as comfortable as you can for the sake of your health.
We all know that when it comes to laptops, things can get very uncomfortable very quickly. You won’t always have the privilege of using it on top of an ergonomic desk while sitting in a comfortable chair. So for these two reasons alone, you need to somehow adjust the laptop to be easy on your spine and your eyes.
Luckily, technology has greatly evolved in the past few years and people have found solutions to this problem as well – laptop stands. Thanks to the laptopstand, you can now easily use the laptop in a not-so-comfortable and far from ideal conditions, yet still feel no back pain, neck pain, strain in your eyes, and so on.
The benefits of an ergonomic laptopstand are numerous, and depending on the model of the stand, they can also grant additional health benefits. The main benefit is providing a spot to place a laptop, at a height that doesn’t require the person using it to assume bad posture or strain their neck in order to operate with it comfortably. Furthermore, any quality ergonomically designed laptop stand will also accommodate the keyboard of the laptop, allowing the user to type without straining their wrists.
Everybody knows that the ideal height of the monitor should be at an eye level. However, in practice that almost never happens, not because we don’t want it to be at an eye level, but because it’s impossible, at least without a laptop stand. Moreover, many models will also have cooling and lighting features, allowing you to work in the dark and keep your laptop cool.
In my opinion, there is no reason why every laptop owner should not have a laptop stand. It is a small price to pay for the sake of your health. Furthermore, your productivity can be taken to a whole new level, meaning you will get work done quicker and more efficiently, and then spend more time away from the laptop – the ideal win-win situation!
