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.

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.

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

laptop ergonomic stop back-pain

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.

Back-pain. Better an Ergonomics chair or a fully Adjustable Laptop support?

A support to transfor any chiar in ergonomic chair against backpain

Ergonomics for Back Pain prevention: Chair vs. Laptop Stand.

Laptop use risks without ergonomic posture

Using your Laptop for a long time in wrong posture may be dangerous for your health.ergonomics chair back pain
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.

Laptop health risks: Radiation, Thermal, Wi-fi exposure

Stop EMF radiation keep your laptop away from body

Laptop Health. Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) emitted from laptops and its potential dangers.

Keep your body and laptop safe with Lounge-tek ergonomic supports.

Lounge-book is the ergonomic support that keeps away your laptop from your body . Thanks to the fully adjustable laptop-tray “suspended” by the metallic structure, you can find always the ergonomic position, to prevent pains and other postural diseases.

Laptop and Tablet PC: born for mobility

Portable computers are often used at tight contact with the body and therefore are called “laptop”. This is  an improper site for the use of a Personal Computer, which consequently should be renamed to not induce customers towards an improper use.
About Laptop Health,an interesting study was made by Department of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Reproduction Medicine, University of Siena .
The authors measured electromagnetic fields (EMFs) laptop computers produce and estimated the induced currents in the body, to assess the safety of laptop computers.
The authors evaluated 5 commonly used laptop of different brands.
They measured EMF exposure produced and, using validated computerized models, the authors exploited the data of one of the laptop computers to estimate the magnetic flux exposure of the user and of the fetus in the womb, when the laptop is used at close contact with the woman’s womb.  In the LTCs analyzed, EMF values (range 1.8-6 μT) are considerably higher than the values recommended by 2 recent guidelines for computer monitors magnetic field emissions, MPR II (Swedish Board for Technical Accreditation) and TCO (Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), and those considered risky for tumor development.
When close to the body, the laptop induces currents that are within 34.2% to 49.8% ICNIRP recommendations, but not negligible, to the adult’s body and to the fetus (in pregnant women). On the contrary, the power supply induces strong intracorporal electric current densities in the fetus and in the adult subject, which are respectively 182-263% and 71-483% higher than ICNIRP 98 basic restriction recommended to prevent adverse health effects. FCC report regarding safety from EMFs way back in 1996 states that a laptop needs to be placed at least 20 cm from the body.

Thermal dangers of laptops.

American Academy of Pediatrics, say that chronic exposure to the heat source on the underside of a laptop computer can cause an unsightly rash dubbed “laptop skin” or, laptop-induced “erythema ab igne,” a web-like, pinkish-brownish lesion. Also known as “toasted skin syndrome,” erythema ab igne can result from prolonged skin contact with any significant heat source. Laptops been identified as an agent, Heat exposures at laptop positions could also induce negative effects on spermatogenesis and fertility.

An accurate medical questioning revealed that the patients used to place the lower surface of laptop computer on the extensor side of their thighs in a cross-legged position for many hours (about 6-8 hours) every days. In particular, the patients supported the laptop computer always on the same leg. Laptop computer-induced EAI was diagnosed, The heat behind the damage all originates from three potential sources on the laptop: the optical drive, the battery and the ventilation fan, The infrared radiation from the heat causes a reticular pattern of hyper-pigmentation due to the swelling of surrounding cells the risks associated are mainly aesthetic.
Though this is indeed the case for “laptop skin,” other types of ertythema ab igne have potentially graver long-term health consequences. Just as prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation mutates skin cells and causes melanoma, exposure to severe infrared radiation can cause squamous skin-cell cancer. Simply stopping exposure to the laptop will cause the lesion to fade completely in a matter of weeks.

Unfortunately, the most convenient way of using a laptop is by putting on the lap, which in turn occludes the ventilation-fan exhaust and increases the computer’s temperature.  For protection from thermal protection, keep it off your lap and away from all your vital organs. In most of the laptop heating cases, patients are not aware of the heat resulting in delay of the patient response. This delay could be related to the intensity of the heat, the duration of contact, and the presence of clothes between the computer and the skin. Heating can be mitigated by using a laptop cleaning the thermal hole, lifting the back and changing the battery mode, so that system will automatically adjust the running speed of CPU, will help in power saving and decrease heating. The laptop should be placed on a hard surface and not on soft surfaces like a bed or couch. Switched-on laptop should not be placed to prevent overheating. Proper cleaning of the fan and sink (metal component reduces heat from the microprocessor) should be carried out. Universal Serial Bus device should be connected only when they are in use
It’s not like the computer manufacturers don’t warn us. If you take the time to look in your manual (which many of us don’t), you’ll probably find wording something to this effect: “Warning: Do not place on lap.” And actually, these days, you just need to look at the bottom of your laptop and you’ll likely find this kind of warning:  “Warning: Do not block the outlet of fan grill. Place the machine on hard surface only. Caution: This surface is hot. Avoid body contact and do not place this notebook on your lap while it is operating.”
For a good Laptop Health, it should be used in properly ventilated and air-conditioned rooms. The most effective way of preventing erythema is to use the laptop on the table or other ergonomic desk  as Lounge-tek’s Supports.

Potential Dangers of Wi-Fi

Before we can really delve into the existing research and run the numbers on wifi health risks, it’s good to know exactly what wifi is.

What’s Wi-Fi?

An interesting post by explane it and talks about Wi-fi Risks…. Wi-Fi is easy and convenient but many have raised doubts concerning the safety of unseen forces that permeate everything around us. Since the introduction of Wi-Fi in 1997, researchers have performed hundreds of studies to explore if the wi-fi exposure may be the reason of several diseases and issues… Insomnia, Childhood Development, Cell Growth, Brain Function, Fertility, Cardiac Stress, Cancer. This is extremely controversial but we can’t ignore that plenty of animal models indicate that exposure to electromagnetic radiation increases the risk of tumor development but at the opposite “a Wi-Fi signal is around is 100,000 times less than a microwave oven”  (The Guardian). The oven is a targeted device that operates at very high voltages and short distances. Wi-Fi routers operate at very low voltages, broadcast in all directions, and are used at relatively long distances.. At normal operating distances, Wi-Fi’s intensity is generally so low that it’s not worth worrying about: it’s just part of the “smog” that is generated by radio and TV signals, AC mains wiring, the motors in home appliances, and the universe in general. (the wavelength of Wi-Fi signals is the same as the cosmic background radiation)

There have been hundreds of attempts to find out whether Wi-Fi routers or, more importantly, mobile phones represent a health risk. . If you want to to minimise risk, the mobile phone must be the first thing to go. In use, the phone is held close to the brain, while the Wi-Fi router may well be in another room (inverse square law).  Your microwave oven should be safe enough because designs are tested to make sure they are properly shielded. If you are extremely fussy about Wi-Fi, then make sure you sit 1m (or more) away from the router, and don’t use your laptop on your lap, put it on a table or tray instead.

Lounge-tek’s supports are the perfect stand to create Wi-Fi lounges for public spaces, cafè , waiting rooms.

Limit children’s exposure to wi-fi

Laptop's ergonomic risks for childrens. using laptop

Children and adolescents are at considerable risk from devices that radiate microwaves. Children absorb a greater amount of microwave radiation than adults. Adolescent girls and women should not place cellphones in their bras or in hijabs (headscarf).
Wireless devices are radio transmitters, not toys.  Selling toys that use them should be monitored more closely… as supported by an interesting post by

Thanks to her profound knowledge of the rules of Feng Shui, she has the ability spaces to balance out living spaces.
These objects were born from harmonic search across masculine and feminine, fullness and emptiness, and the union materials and emotions that shapes the sitting of natural spaces.

Harmony with yourself

Lounge-tek with their artisans, have realized this furniture elements to find an equilibrium, for the new digital lifestyles.

What’s Feng Shui Design

Feng Shui is an original Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment.
Feng Shui objects take the approach that your surroundings affect not just the level of material comfort but also physical and mental health, relationships, energy.
Feng Shui Design examines how the placement of things and objects within it affect the energy flow in living environment, and how these objects interact with and influence personal energy flow. This influence is achieved by positioning or designing your surroundings in harmony with principles of natural energy flow.
Feng Shui offers a unique way of looking at yourself and your environment, and it provides a way of bringing balance, comfort, and harmony into your environment in a manner that is difficult to achieve by any other means.

Green Decor: Lounge-tek introduces Biovertigo, the vegetal Picture Frame

Lounge-tek developes new concepts for a new digital lifestyle, now with an innovative element for Green Decor
We think Biovertigo as a easy way to decore your house with plants and flowers reducing maintenance and daily irrigation.

Green Decor available for two Models and sizes:

Biovertigo Easy
2 Balconies made by ABS and Polycarbonate, Red, White and Black


Biovertigo Wood
3 Balconies made by ABS (Soil and vegetal fiber container), Solid Wood (external frame), handmade on our traditional tone: Natural, Dark, Hot and Classic


BioVertigo allows you to give a Brush Stroke of Nature to every interior and terrace, in the same easy way you can choose and hang up a painting, with the possibility to play as well with volumes of plants . With Biovertigo it’s easy to compose a Green Decor with your favorite plants and flowers.


 Man has always tried to maintain contact with nature even though autonomously has buried himself in apartments and offices increasingly far away from it and in complete contrast to his harmonious laws. To maintain this link, absolutely necessary and vital, he places green plants and flower in apartments, offices and terraces. Designing with plants, in an artistic and not so obvious way, however, is one of the problems with which our daily creativity is confronted, also because of the increase of small dimensions of the spaces in which we live and move. Certain is that everyone likes to have some “green around”: some for actually unconditional love for nature, others to improve the microclimate thanks to the benefits of plants, others just for purely aesthetic reasons, because, you know, green is a great way to decorate.

Adaptable to every environment and furnishing style, our Vegetal Framework changes its appearance almost daily, following the harmonic dynamics of Mother Nature in all its imitable multi sensorial nuances. Decorate using the nature in vertical, in its simplicity, is an extremely strong and disruptive concept, which has the great merit to safeguard and respect the spaces, the needs and everyone’s lifestyle.


Ideal for interiors, especially apartments and offices using most types of exotic plants on the market, and external, in particular halls and Terraces with annuals or perennials plants and/or aromatic ones.

Selecting the essences, take special care to the fact that the type of substrate is identical for all plants of your choice.

The placement must be done obviously in a sufficiently illuminated space and able to guarantee the process of photosynthesis, at the base of the well-being of the chosen plants (under testing a new version of timed lighting system dedicated to poorly or not illuminated areas). BioVertigo must be supported by 2 dowels that can withstand the weight of the BioVertigo even under full load of water (about 10 Kilograms).

BioVertigo is able to brighten and make each room special improving air quality, reducing considerably the concentration of harmful substances and the perceptions of temperature and increasing the relative humidity during the winter and refreshing in the summer.



Easy Maintenance: visually occurs periodically the water level directly at the base of the unit. If finished,proceed to the new watering pouring slowly the liquid directly into the top of the structure that will immediately be absorbed without any loss. Excess liquid will form a water reserve that, by capillarity, willbe available for plants roots only when necessary.

The maintenances required are extremely limited and diluted over time thanks to the recovery and subsequent water redistribution system — just watering the plants by hand, pouring the water from above, every 15-25 days(the time interval between one irrigation and the next one depends considerably on environmental conditions, in any case you must first rely on visual inspection). To get growths and even more lush blooms just add every 3/4 months, a small amount of liquid fertilizer to irrigation water.

The well-being of the plants will be such as good as we will pay attention to some periodic pruning to keep the artwork similar to what the author had in mind!


The potting cultivation generally, and in a small vegetal framework in particulary, introduces various problems,which as :

– The volume of the potting soil, in which all the circle phases happen in nature, where the organic substances were turned into mineral  compost, assimiable by the plants, is reduced.
– The plants suffer often of rottenness, caused by too much or on the contrary, the absence of watering.
– The plants are often subjects of scorches and sufferings caused by an excessive, poor or absent fertilization.


Our FiberTrick, , it’s a compound based on various types of vegetable Fibers, selected of the best essences coming from different parts of the world.

Why add FiberTrick to the potting soil ?

– A correct and essential motion of a capillary request from the waterstock.
– A homogeneous distribution of the nutrients in the whole structure..
– Enough energy to guarantee, to all plants on various levels, a luxuriant growing.
– A complete microsystem full of active microorganisms
– A rich and airy potting soil, typical usually only of outdoor planting.


– An advanced administration of the water/air system in the potting soil.
– Capacity of self-regulating regarding to the administration of nutrients, releasing or retaining them, according to the needs of the plants.
– An enriched bacterial flora, formed of a selection of benefitting microorganisms, which stimulates the symbiosis with the plants.
