Our ever evolving lifestyle !

We enjoy the flexibility of working on a laptop in comparison to on a desktop/monitor since it's easy to carry around and allows you to work almost anywhere. However, this flexibility comes with its own vices - you bend your neck down to look at the screen which could lead to muscles around the neck, shoulders and back to strain. Over a longer term, this could lead to chronic neck & upper back pain also known as cervical spondylosis or slip disc. This pain could even lead to arm and wrist stiffness and numbness in fingers.

Laptop stands help us improve the ergonomics of using a laptop by maintaining a natural and healthy posture.

Top 3 reasons to use a laptop stand
 
Posture:

Most laptop stands come with an adjustable height stand which would allow you to place the laptop in such a way that the screen comes directly at eye level. This ensures you look straight at the screen while maintaining a natural posture for neck and back, as recommended by doctors.

Portability:

Most laptop stands are portable and lightweight - you could carry them along with the laptop and continue enjoying the portability aspect of the laptop while taking care of your body ergonomic

Add on features:

Modern laptop stands have added advantages such as additional USB ports, built-in fans to keep the air circulation better, cable management, etc.
