Laptop Stands. We've got your back.
WFH a lot lately? You've probably noticed a few things: craning your neck in Zoom meetings, noisy laptop fan, stiff shoulders and some missing books and containers (we're talking about you ScoMo).
The thing is – we are all guilty. We get into these awkward positions when we're working on our laptop, forcing us to lean forward and putting tension on our neck and lower back. But these poses can become a huge problem for you ergonomically, packing your cervical spine with some pounds of pressure over time.
Apart from physical exercises, laptop stands can step up and help you take some of that tension off.
Do laptop stands really work?
The answer is: yes, but only if you pick one that is right for you!
Doesn't matter where you're working from or how you're doing it, the rule of thumb is: pain is a clear signal that something is wrong.
So, put your stack of books aside and meet the laptop stands behind all those 5-star ratings!
Top 3 things to look for when choosing your laptop stand
When buying a laptop stand for yourself, we recommend considering these few factors:
Smart ergonomic setup
Every body is different, literally! Depending on your height, choosing a laptop stand that suits you ergonomically is like buying a pair of shoes that fit. Make your laptop work for you – you should never have to lean forward to type on your keyboard or bend your neck to view the screen.
With most suitable for laptops between 11” and 17”, shop our tested and rated favourites below:
Add fixed-height and raise your laptop or tablet comfortably to eye level. Type smoothly without having to lean in again.
Completely height-adjustable, elevate the display as you wish, and a slightly fancier cousin of the fixed-height ones. Tip: bring the laptop about an arm's length away, with top of the screen at or slightly below your eye level for best posture.
Hybrid combination that raises your screen higher and tilts your keyboard at desk level altogether. Type comfortably without having to lean in again.
