Intensive use of laptops at home may cause back pain.
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 PCs and tablet PCs
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.
That position is best for lower back discs but will ultimately cause tremendous strain on neck and upper back discs. It will take stress off lower back but very much at the expense of the neck & upper back. 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. More about the 135 degree posture

Laptop use risks without ergonomic posture
Using your Laptop for a long time in wrong posture may be dangerous for your health.
Sitting in a standard office chair for prolonged periods of time can definitely cause low back pain or worsen an existing back problem. The main reason behind this is that sitting, in an office chair or in general, is a static posture that increases stress in the back, shoulders, arms, and legs, and in particular, can add large amounts of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs.
Persistently incorrect posture, faulty biomechanical stress, fluctuation between contraction and relaxation of muscles is disturbed. 90% of cervical pain is non-specific. It usually develops slowly through persistent (unilateral) incorrect biomechanical stress. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. All of these can be major contributors to back and neck pain, as well as headaches, fatigue, and possibly even concerns with major organs and breathing.
Ergonomic use of laptops at home
Mainly, People use laptop at home:
A) As a Desktop Replacement, usually by hanging it on a desk connected to an external monitor.
B) As a Mobile Device on Chairs, armchairs, sofas or bed. Usually we support laptop with body: legs, wrists, or we hold it by conventional furniture such as coffe-tables and bedside tables.
Better an ergonomic chair
Using the Laptop on your desk, you definitely should buy an ergonomic chair and an adjustable height-adjustable external monitor to find the right posture by adjusting your chair to the best body position. An ergonomic office chair is a tool that, when used properly, can help one maximize back support and maintain good posture while sitting.
The first step in setting up an office chair is to establish the desired height of the individual’s desk or workstation. This decision is determined primarily by the type of work to be done and by the height of the person using the office chair. The height of the desk or workstation itself can vary greatly and will require different positioning of the office chair, or a different type of ergonomic chair altogether.

The best place to sit for our Back
It is confirmed by a number of studies that the most relaxing position for our back is a 135 degree angle to the legs.
