Mobile devices as laptop, notebook or tablet PC, works at its best on mobility. These technologies are now introduced into the workplace and elsewhere, expecially at home, where an increasing number of users as home-workers, freelance, business people, spend most of time working with computers with health implications associated with overuse.

Ergonomic issues

Due to their mobility notebook computers are used in a variety of work environments resulting in several user postural configurations. Users often sit in chairs and work with notebook computers set on non-adjustable work-surfaces without the use of external keyboards, pointing devices, or monitors.

Don’t hold your laptop on your lap.

Working with notebook computers on the lap is associated with even more head and neck flexion. This can be attributed to the lower screen height of a notebook computer, which has been reported several times as a significant factor for head and neck discomfort. In addition to placing the notebook in the lap, notebook users take on many other non-desk postures. These include sitting cross-legged, laying prone (face down), and seated with feet raised and legs either straight or knees flexed approximately 90 degrees.

 

Accessories can improve non-neutral postures associated with the devices, to setting up a notebook to emulate a desktop computer, with the use of accessories such as notebook riser, keyboards and pointing devices. The use of external keyboards and pointing devices is associated with lower levels of discomfort and better levels of productivity Performance is often better with an external mouse compared to an internal touch pad.

Lounge-book improves head and neck postures and user experiences

Lounge-book is the fully adjustable laptop support that allow to find a good posture using laptop at home.
Height regulation, tilting and rotating laptop base, Lounge-book easly slide under most of furniture as armchair, sofa, chiase longue, lounge-chair, and even bed.
Seated postures with sufficient back support are often more comfortable than the prone, with relaxed shoulders and more neutral postures.
Working with notebook computers on top of a desk has been associated with greater head and neck flexion; however, it is often associated with less wrist extension.
Compared to working with a desktop or a notebook in a desktop configuration (raised monitor and external keyboard and mouse) head flexion is about 10 degrees more when using a notebook computer.
Lounge-book also allow to move legs: sitting in the same position for hours, like in a chair where the body is bent at the hips and knees, can block blood from getting back to the heart, and may even cause your legs to become swollen.

Prolonged use of a laptop, however, has its ergonomic limitations. On its own, the laptop is unsuited for working or  watch media (at least 3 hours) for more than one hours, working longer on a laptop results in an uncomfortable position with pain and stress. Prolonged laptop use leads to more fatigue and discomfort in the neck and shoulder region. Screen has to be adjusted to eye level. This can be accomplished with an integrated laptop support as Lounge-book.
You will be also, free to move, during advertising spots, to take a drink or your favorite snack!

Hundred years. Thank you Achille Castiglioni

works and philosofy of achille castiglioni the master of italian design that inspire every day our work

2018, Achille Castiglioni would be one hundred years old.
A special memory for his work that inspired us so much in the creation of our products. His thoughts guide us in our daily work: a philosophy that we feel contemporary more than ever, which we summarize with one of his most famous aphorism: “Good design projects never originate from the ambition to leave one’s own mark, but from one’s willingness to build a relationship with the unknown end-user.”Achille Castiglioni

Ci siamo ispirati alla lampada toio di achille castiglioni per realizzare il nostro supporto per notebook Lounge-book

Welcome back Brionvega! One of the brands that made the history of TV and Radio in the sixties. Brionvega returns with masterpieces of design including objects such as the “stereo radio phonograph” of Castiglioni or the radio “cube”. It was a design that had in the DNA the tradition of craftsmanship, traditional materials such as metal and wood but also with the innovation of plastic materials. But the main point of the thought was to create robust practical objects with intelligent and versatile solutions. It is the same philosophy and materials that we find in our ergonomic supports for laptops, objects that have shapes inspired by tradition but offer modern solutions for the new digital lifestyles.

Smart & Stylish support for iPad Pro and tablet PC

Smart devices as iPad Pro, also at home

Tablet PC are a new way to use computers, with intuitive gestures achieved for mobile computing.
However, responsive pencil,  Face ID and all the smart features included in amazing device like iPad Pro, tempt users to replace dektop and laptops with tablet PC, also for home-Computing.

Love your iPad as you can see on the video above?

Take care how you use it!  As convenient as iPads and other tablet computers are, they can cause physical problems because people often peer down at them in their laps. Viewing a computer screen is less stressful on the body when users are seated looking straight at the screen, not from above or below.
People use tablet PC in four different positions: in the lap with the tablet held with their hand; in the lap with the tablet resting against its case at the low angle position; on a table against the case at the low angle position and on a table with the case at its high angle position. Only when used on a table at the high angle position, users’ posture approach neutrality a straight-on viewing position. From the other three positions, users look downward at their tablets, at a steeper angle than has generally been reported for laptop or desktop computer users. Over an extended period of time, this is likely to cause stress on neck muscles and other postural problems.

Laptop cooling stand

laptop cooling comfort ergonomic support

More than a Laptop Cooling stand

“Lounge-book” is more than a laptop cooling stand. “Lounge-book” is also a fully adjustable ergonomic support, that improve ergonomic features of portable computers.
Laptop overheating has become one of the most common issues for laptop users. One highly possible culprit of laptop overheating is insufficient cooling. You will need to rule out anything that can keep your laptop from getting adequate cooling.

Laptop overheathing: the main cause is a wrong air flow.

The vents of your computer are supposed to be cleaned and cleared. The dirt covering these vents will prevent the air from flowing in and out, and therefore results in high temperature.
Place your laptop on a hard and flat surface that will be less likely to block the airflow. Soft surfaces like quilt or sofa can stop the proper airflow of your laptop and lead to overheating.
“Lounge-book” works as a laptop cooler ensuring the proper air flow on the bottom of your laptop and help it get enough cool air.

Coolfit improve cooling of laptops and notebook

“Lounge-book” assure the perfect air flow under the laptop thanks to the special holes positioned on the laptop-tray and “coolfit” the special feets made by technogel that raise the computer, improving stability and air flow.

holes assure a good air flow under laptop

Health dangers

Prolonged Use of Laptops Can Cause Toasted Skin Syndrome.The bottom of laptops can get very hot … this heat comes from operating hard drives, processors, batteries, and other internal electronic mechanisms. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to heat on the upper legs can cause ‘Toasted Skin Syndrome,’ a brownish discoloration of the skin. In some cases, this skin darkening can become permanent and in rare cases, the damage may lead to skin cancer.

Don’t keep Laptop on your lap!

Keep your laptop away from your body

Laptop Cooling and health risks

Expecially on Summer, whitout dress to stop impact of cooling airflows, you should keep your laptop away from your body.
It’s not only an health problem but also for computers! A major problems in the operation of laptop computers is overheating since it can affect the performance and stability, sometimes leading to system crash and hardware fatality. Increased height almost always translates to lower temperatures because of  enhanced airflow and because of distance from the heat radiation source.
Although most laptops tend to have holes and/or padded feet at the bottom.

Laptops are Harmless for pregnant woman if used Correctly

Electronics give off a lot of potentially harmful rays, there are many studies with contradicting results regarding the potentially cancerous side effects of laptop use.
If you have a baby bump, don’t use it as a laptop tray while you’re lounging on the couch or in bed. This position is not recommended, for exposure to electromagnetic waves and high temperatures of the base.
In addition to high levels of heat that could harm your baby, using your laptop in such a relaxed seated position could hurt your body in the long run. Sitting for a long period of time while pregnant has been linked with blood clots, especially if the pressure is in an unusual spot. You should make sure you practice proper posture when pregnant by putting your laptop away from body, on a laptop desk or table and sitting upright in an ergonomic chair. That way, the heat won’t get to your fetus, and you’ll have less back and arm pain in the long run.

Back-pain using laptop at home

backpain usng laptop at home

Intensive use of laptops at home may cause backpain.

The features that make laptops very portable, such as a screen attached to the keyboard, are the same features that make it difficult for people to adopt correct posture when using them.
A common problem is perching a laptop on the legs so users stare down at the screen and put strain on their necks, spines and legs. Back specialists say as many as four in five patients have chronic nerve damage caused by intensive working on portable computers and tablet-PC

135 degrees position perfect posture to use laptop on desktop or through a laptop support

135 degree Posture, best for back!

Adopt good sitting posture with lower back support, and ensure other desk equipment is within reach. Sitting in a 135 degree thigh to torso sitting angle is best for spinal discs and recommend that as the best sitting position for office workers.
A 135 degree sitting angle is exactly half way between sitting up straight and lying flat on your back . It’s not very practical for the average office setting: with lounge-tek support you can transform your sofa, armchair, bed in a perfect laptop desk.
