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 !

Lounge-wood as a support for tablet or iPad

+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!

Support for tablet and ipad

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.

Special felt-pads, supplied in each Loungewood, allow you to adjust even the slim last generation Tablets.

The newly released Lounge Books are designed with both ergonomics and aesthetics in mind. While being a stylish accessory for laptop users that would appear at home in the fanciest of surroundings, it is the practicality of the Lounge Book that is paramount. Enabling users to move from bedroom, to lounge room to garden, the Lounge book gives users a freedom of movement that allows them to work in almost any environment. The ergonomic design of the Lounge Book enables use by either left or right handed users, can be height adjusted and the angle of the table can also be adjusted.

RECREATHING

Ikea Dave collides with the arm that does not allow to fix it Lounge-book can move, tilt, turn until you get the perfect position for fast typing on the keyboard.
Another interesting thing about the Lounge-Book are the two “Coolfit” that lock the devices even when the laptop is tilted. They are perfect with my MacBook Pro because they come flush with the keyboard, the supports below the keyboard less with the MacBook Air 11″…is really very thin.
With the Ikea Dave tilted the laptop slips and you need an additional support that allows you to tilt and turn.
Both are stable, but Lounge-book’s legs, allow to insert easy under armchairs and sofa.
Lounge-book (EcoDesign Model i tested) is composed by recycled materials, the laptop tray is made by a special biopolymer 30% Plastic 70% refused wood
