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.

Lounge-book  with the laptop tray and coolfit kits provides some elevation and air circulation for heat dissipation, height is  generally given less prominence.

Lounge-wood 2014. New features to support iPad, Tablet, E-book Reader

Improve Ergonomic features of Tablet PCs, I-Pad, Kindle, E-book readers

Four years later the great success of Apple iPad, we think that the Tablet introduced a new lifestyle in mobility, but not replaced the Laptops for the personal productivity needs.
We studied for a long time to create a new ergonomic accessory, to make  comfortable use of iPad and tablet at home, expecially to watch video, surfing web and Social network, Reading e-book  or typing text with an external keyboard. Those are the typical situations where Sitting too long in any one position is always an invitation to strain, as our bodies aren’t designed to be sedentary for long periods of time. Muscles and tendons need a break,  Tablet PC and iPad are invented to use in mobility for a short time, weight is almost half kg, tolerable in ten minutes time, more is heavy for neck, whrist, hands, muscle and tendons that get stressed. Over time, it may cause neck-pain, back-pain, and other patholgies like Cervical, carpal tunnel syndrome.
We decided to improve the performance of our Laptop-supports,  using those devices, we believe that most people don’t leave their notebook to use only iPad or Tablet. “Born for Laptop, useful also for tablet PC”
We started with our Lounge-wood: in the new 2014 model , we have included a new features, to improve the user experience with those devices.
Lounge-wood allows you to use the tablet in two ways:

+ PRODUCTIVITY

Positioning the device with an angle of 40 ° , adjustable by tilting the tray, with space for the bluetooth keyboard.
An amazing idea, to transform the Tablet in Netbook, while working or typing text !

+ENJOY

With an angle of 10 ° versus the edge of the tray.Perfect for multimedia contents (video , movie , photo ) allows use without hold it with hands.
The ultimate solution to preserve your iPad from crash caused by falling asleep in bed!

multimedia mode to watch tv

 

We have already discussed the physical problems caused by prolonged use of those devices.

Here an interesting post by Digital trends
Some positions, may cause neck muscles pain and stress the cervical.If you use the tablet in netbook mode, with additional keyboard , you can  take advantage of the excellent Lounge-wood’s features improving ergonomics of laptops.For example, eyes can get near to the screen, preventing vision problems.The support iPad is a special slot in the Laptop-tray. It  allows tablets 7″-10 ” (12″ vertical) with thickness up to 15 mm.
