home office

Are you using your laptop computer while working in your home office?

A laptop is a great useful powerful compact tool. It would be even better if it was easy to use it while at the same time maintaining proper alignment, thus protecting the user from musculoskeletal discomfort.

If you can get the laptop aligned for proper wrist and arm postures, it generally puts the screen too low causing awkward excessively downward bending neck postures. If you raise the screen so that your neck is more comfortable, it generally puts your wrists at risk.

If you are finding yourself spending more time working with your laptop, consider getting a separate keyboard and mouse and elevating your laptop. This will allow you to protect your wrists as well as your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
