Monitor Height, Monitor Distance, The head and neck should be in line with body, the shoulders should be relaxed, not elevated up by the ears, those factors enable a laptop desk as a solution to improve ergonomic features of devices designed for a mobile use such as notebook, tablet pc , E-book readers.
Transforming a furniture element in an ergonomic laptop desk for mobile computers and tablets.
That’s the goal we reached when we’ve designed Lounge-book and Lounge-wood our innovative support for digital devices.
We started from the typical ergonomic issue about ergonomic computer desks, but we considered that most of people switch their Destop computer for a Laptop.
Millions of people work with computers every day and many millions more spend extended time on computers at home. By having the optimal height and placement of the keyboard, monitor, desk and chair you’ll avoid awkward postures that lead to muscle imbalances, strain on joints and repetitive stress injuries. The correct arrangement of components will facilitate a safe and comfortable computing experience. Even a simple change in one component, such as an ergonomically designed mouse, can reduce pain in the thumb and wrist joints.
The top of the computer screen should be level with or just below eye level. If your screen is too high the head will tip upwards (neck extension) and if the screen is too low the head will tip down (neck flexion). If bifocal or trifocal glasses are worn take into consideration where you look through your glasses, the lower or middle part, and make an adjustment so your screen is level to or below the viewing area of your glasses. Using a single-vision lenses designed for computer work expands the viewing area and eliminates the need to look through the bottom portion of the lens.
Alternate solution: If the height of your monitor is fixed, make the adjustment for optimal viewing level by raising or lowering your chair. Monitor Distance:
The monitor should be directly in front of you at a distance of 20 to 40 inches (50 and 100 cm) away. Torso:
The head and neck should be in line with the torso and not twisted to one side, jutting forward or tipped up or down. The shoulders should be relaxed, not elevated up by the ears. The lower back is supported by the back rest or lumbar support of the chair.
Position the upper arms close to the body and in line with the trunk or slightly forward, but not reaching. The elbows are flexed at ~90 degrees so the forearms are parallel to the floor or tilted slightly down. The elbows should be supported by arms rests, if padded and soft, and the wrists and hands should be in a straight position, not bent up, down or to the side. The wrists and hands should not rest on sharp edges, such as the edge of a desk.
Lounge-tek reverse the concept of the traditional furniture and Computer Desk.
The Device follow humans and not the opposite….
The laptop is suspended without a direct contact with the body. At the right height for eys, right tilt for a correct use of keyboard, with a mouse pad to support an external Mouse.
Finally The comfort and ergonomic depends from the armchair / furniture you have.
