Essential Ergonomic Furniture for the Dorm – Part Two

Bad_PostureIs your college bound child a pain in the neck? Maybe it is a result of improper head & neck positions while using a tablet or a laptop.

From Laptops to iPads & Tablets, technology is forever changing the way we learn and work. Unfortunately these devices will cause neck discomfort due to repetitive usage. It is all about positioning. Ideally we want everyone to use an external keyboard, mouse (wired or wireless) and laptopstand at all times. Since it is important not to distort your hands & wrists while typing on the unit. Do these images below portray your child? Please review this very poignant study entitled Oh My Aching Laptop.



Here are a few of our favorites that we use (in our office & home offices & when we travel) which makes it ideal for your college student to be used in the dorm, classroom or computer lab.
