Students have the most interesting studying spots. I have seen a lot of makeshift study spaces, some more elaborate than others. I feel like the name of the laptop has been taken a little too seriously by students throughout the years. It is not meant to be used for long periods of time on your lap or on a kitchen table. Don’t get me wrong, they are great portable devices. They allow students to study and work just about anywhere. The problem is the posture it puts students in to complete their tasks. The risk of discomfort is extremely high!In a study of university students, 70.8% complained of lower back pain (LBP) in a sitting position, compared to 23.5% while lying on their back, 3.6% while standing, and 2.6% while lying face down (1,2).
The good news is that there have been many portable products made to accessorizes laptops in order to increase levels of comfort and productivity! Who doesn’t love being productive and comfortable.
We have created a bundle for students that will not break the bank and be portable for at home and at school use. In the bundle we have the trifecta, a mouse, keyboard and laptop riser. Honestly these items should always accompany laptop use, here is why:
The laptop riser will help bring the laptop screen to the right eye level while the external mouse and compact keyboard will eliminate the awkward reach to the laptop touchpad and keyboard.
Here is an image to show you what an optimal/neutral position looks like. This will help with your discomforts if you mimic this workplace.
Take care of your body and you will be compensated with great productivity and comfort!
Go get your Student Bundle to start your ergonomic journey.
