What Are Laptop Risers and Computer Lap Desks?
Laptop risers are solutions that raise the screen to eye level or other comfortable positions, allowing users to alleviate neck pain easily during the workday. Neck pain is one of the most common annoyances when working on a laptop, and for many, their home setup may not accommodate a fully ergonomic way to work. Looking down at a screen, hunching over or sitting in awkward positions can all cause straining and tightening of the neck, leading not only to neck soreness but headaches and back pain as well.
Computer lap desks are trays that are meant to hold your computer comfortably atop your lap. A computer lap desk is typically used by people who enjoy working from their sofas, lounge chairs, or bed or who do not have access to a desk. These laptop trays also help improve airflow for the computer and reduce neck strain for the user.
Choosing an adjustable laptop riser or lap desk can improve your posture, health and comfort when computing just about anywhere. You can alleviate soreness and increase productivity and screen count by connecting your laptop to an extra computer monitor to improve your workflow.
Why Should You Use a Computer Lap Desk and a Laptop Riser?
Lap desks for computers and laptop risers are great for maintaining good posture while working, but they also come with other benefits. Some great features to keep in mind for these products are:
- Ergonomic design: These lap trays for laptops are ideal for people looking for neck or back relief, perfectly adjustable for whatever needs you have.
- Desk real estate: By lifting your laptop off the surface of your desk, you reduce your laptop’s footprint and create a potential storage space underneath it for desk organizers and accessories, notes, papers or books.
- Easier laptop cooling: Many laptop trays and risers come with a vented tray to allow quick laptop cooling and to diffuse heat. This improves your laptop’s performance and longevity by preventing air clogging and bringing fresh air into the fans.
- Enable standing desks: Some laptop risers allow the height to adjust so that when the risers are on a desk, users can stand and have the device comfortably at eye level. Ideally, you shouldn’t be looking down while using your laptop, and your elbows should rest comfortably at a 90-degree angle. Using a laptop riser creates a simple standing desk.
