THANSK FOR SHOPPING AT LAPWORKS




Q #1 - Where do you use your notebook mostly?

A - At a desk

Q - Do you type directly into the notebook's keyboard?

A - Yes

RECOMMENDATION: Then consider a notebook riser that will elevate the rear of the notebook so the keyboard will be in the best ergonomic incline for your particular needs.

We have both laptop desks and desktop stands for this purpose. See links below.

HEALTHFUL SUGGESTION: Since you're typing with your hands in an elevated position, you should take a break every 10 to 15 minutes and let your hands hang by your side and shake them a little to get the blood circulating back into your hands.

Q #2 - Where do you use your notebook mostly?

A - At a desk

Q - Do you type directly into the notebook's keyboard?

A - No. I use a separate keyboard and mouse for data entry

RECOMMENDATION: Then consider a notebook stand that will support your notebook and elevate the screen to the proper viewing height. If your notebook gets especially hot then consider a notebook stand with a built-in cooling fan. Make sure the cooling fan blows air upward instead of drawing the hot air downward.

We have laptop desks and desktop stands for this purpose. See link below.

HEALTHFUL SUGGESTION: The proper viewing height is for the top of the notebook's screen to be at or just below your eye level.

Q #3 - Where do you use your notebook mostly?

A - On the sofa or outside on the chaise lounge

RECOMMENDATION: Then consider a lap desk that will span your lap completely and allow your legs to spread apart naturally and comfortably. Make sure the lap desk has ventilation channels for cooling your notebook.

We have laptop desks for this purpose. See link below.

HEALTHFUL SUGGESTION: If the lap desk is not wide enough it will force you to squeeze your legs together and this condition will tire out your legs and body reducing the time you can work on your notebook in this position.

Q #4 - Are you comfortable working with your notebook on your lap?

A - No. I prefer to have the notebook off my lap.

RECOMMENDATION: Then consider an "off-the-lap" stand that will suspend the notebook over your lap. Make sure to select one that has a wide stance and will support the weight of your notebook and a little more

We have off-the-lap stands for this purpose. See link below

HEALTHFUL SUGGESTION: Be very careful when you incline your notebook and you are typing directly onto the notebook's keyboard that you do not bend your wrists upwards because it could eventually lead to Carpel Tunnel injury.

Also, when working with an off-the-lap stand, your hand are most likely inclined upward. Gravity will draw the blood from your hands so take regular breaks to lay your hands by your side in order to restore normal blood circulation to your hands.

Q #5 - Do you often use your notebook in bed?

A - Yes. And sometimes my notebook gets really hot sitting on my blankets.

RECOMMENDATION: Then consider a lap desk that will allow your notebook to breathe while sitting on your blankets. It would help if the lap desk has some sort of ventilation channels to allow for normal convection to take place - this will keep your notebook running cool. A lap desk with a fan will not help because the fan must draw cool air in and the fan will most likely be sitting on your blankets and will not be able to intake air.

Another recommendation is an off-the-lap stand that will suspend the notebook in mid air.

We have both lap desks and off-the-lap stands for this purpose. See link below

HEALTHFUL SUGGESTION: Be very careful when you incline the notebook and you are typing directly onto the notebook's keyboard that you do not bend your wrists upwards because it could eventually lead to Carpel Tunnel injury.
