The most comfortable stands for your laptop

If you have a laptop, you no doubt know that working with them is anything but ergonomic . The posture you have to maintain in front of the computer is not comfortable and makes you have both your back and your neck strained. What is the solution? Laptop stands can make a difference, allowing you to maintain good postural hygiene.

The correct posture before the computer is very important, especially if you are one of those who spends hours and hours in front of the screen. Desktop computers have a monitor that is separate from the keyboard, thus allowing you to position yourself in a much more neutral way. But what if you have to work with a laptop ? Things change quite a bit.

So that you can place your arms in a good position, you will end up having the screen more separated from the account. Not only this: the screen will be too low . And that can have a negative impact on your body, with both neck and back pain. If you are experiencing just this situation, the ideal is that you get a lectern for your computer. In this buying guide we are going to show you exactly how you should choose it and which is the most suitable model for your needs. Keep reading!

Measures to have good postural hygiene

First of all, we are going to see some lessons on postural hygiene . The main problem with laptops is that they force you to be too squat and, above all, the position of your wrists and elbows is not adequate. That is why it is usually advisable to opt for a separate keyboard , and even a mouse, especially if you spend many hours working. If you add a lectern to this, you will get the perfect combo to invest in your postural health.

Beyond this recommendation, the perfect posture to better endure the hours in front of the computer is the following:

  • The back must be completely placed on the back of the chair, without tension. If you see that you are not comfortable, you can always get a lumbar cushion to improve the position.
  • The shoulders should always be relaxed. Nothing to work in tension, your neck will notice!
  • It is essential that your elbows form a 90 degree angle. That is to say: you must support the forearms . Some people opt for a pad to avoid wrist problems.
  • The most important thing is that both the head and the neck are completely straight . This requires the screen to be at least eighteen inches away and at eye level . In the case of the laptop, it will be the stand that helps us achieve this.
  • Finally, the quads should form an angle of about 90 degrees in relation to the hips. If the chair is too high, find a bench so you can put your feet on the ground.

As you can see, laptop stands can make all the difference!

Stands for your laptop: what characteristics should they meet?

Before you venture out to buy a particular lectern, there are certain things you should know about these accessories. Only then will you succeed and find the ideal for you. From Topes de Gama we have taken care of breaking down absolutely everything you have to take into account so that you find one of the best laptop stands.

  • The first and fundamental thing is to take into account the inches of your laptop . This is vital! Because if you buy a music stand that is too small and your computer is, for example, 17 inches, it will not be comfortable for you. In the specifications of the lecterns you will find which computers they are suitable for. Normally, we are talking about measures that give a lot of play, and it is difficult to find one that does not fit your needs.
  • Along with this, it is important that you are aware of how much the lectern occupies and the space that you have on your desk. It may be that the support you like is too big and does not fit in your work area. So keep this in mind as well, because it could make the purchase wrong.
  • Do you need to be able to take the music stand with you to work or study? In that case, you should look for a model that is foldable . There are many! We have selected a few, so that you can also see the different alternatives. They are very compact, they hardly take up space once they are closed and you can take them with you anywhere.
  • Regardless of the style of music stand you choose, it’s important that you can change both the angle and the height . This will allow you to adapt the lectern to your needs at all times. Whether you want to make the screen more upright to write or tilt it to see something in detail, it will be no problem! At Topes de Gama we are committed to versatility, because that way you can get much more out of your accessories.
  • Normally, all laptop stands have the base part of the laptop uncovered. It is a point to consider, especially because it will help your computer to cool down better and you will avoid problems related to temperature.
  • As for the material , you will find lecterns of all kinds. The most premium ones are usually made of aluminum, in grayish and metallic colors. But you will also find them made of aluminum , plastic and even steel. The key is that it is stable , that it remains firm and that it is not going to give you problems in the long term.
  • A non- slip base is almost essential, so make sure that the lectern you choose has some type of base in this regard.
  • As an extra , you should know that there are lecterns that have added compartments. Like, for example, to place your smartphone while you work. Or the headphones! Either way, this will make your music stand take up more space and probably increase its price. So you should be the one who decides whether or not you are interested in investing in this.
  • The last factor to consider is price . Do not worry, because we have chosen supports of all types, so you can spend only what you consider necessary.
