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

135 degrees position perfect posture to use laptop on desktop or through a laptop support

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.
More about the 135 degree posture

A Fully adjustable laptop support that transforms any chair in ergonomic computer desktop

Lounge-tek’s ergonomic supports, allow a 135 degree perfect posture

The concept of “suspension” allow to use laptops with a perfect posture, without stress for upper back, neck and cervical muscles.
Thanks to Lounge-tek supports, always you will get an ergonomic posture:

  • tilt the laptop base up to 35 degrees. This allow to type text with keyboard on natural position for wrists,
  • use an external mouse. The exclusive Mouse-pad is integrate on the main structure, then positioned at the same level of laptop base and keyboard. This allow a natural posture without stress of arm and wrist.
  • place the screen at eye level. Set your laptop height and screen angle so you can easily view the screen without bending or rotating your neck.
  • place the display at the right distance. The viewing range 40 cm to 70 cm (about 15 – 27 in.) provides visual comfort for majority of computer users and eliminates the risk for eyestrain. Right distance depends from the size of your monitor and your individual vision conditions.
  • let seat on your favorite place. Transform Sofa, Armchair, Bed in a perfect laptop desk, with your back on 135 degree (this not depend from laptop support but from your furniture).
  • freedom to move. Usually people hold laptops with legs or abdominal muscles this is cause of stress and other health issues. Prolonged sitting causes various health disorders, change of position and exercising regularly promotes blood circulation.

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.

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!
