Our range of laptop stands are designed to reduce muscle tension and improve your work productivity. They are a compact, portable device that can increase your comfort during extended periods of laptop use.
A stand is the perfect ergonomic device to help improve your posture in the workplace. Although laptops are extremely portable, they aren’t the most ergonomically designed device. Their compact design leaves the screen sitting well below our eye-level. This can lead to muscle strain, eye-strain and poor productivity in the workplace due to uncomfortable conditions. Our range of stands accomodate to any type of laptop or notebook.
If you are using a split screen monitor with your laptop, a stand is a fantastic way to have both screens at the same height to help improve workflow. We sell stands for laptops from trusted ergonomic manufacturers including Humanscale and Vari-Desk.

Have you ever heard of the term HOLS? It stands for “hunched over laptop syndrome”. Laptops have been designed for portability, not for comfort. The compact design of laptops can cause a slew of posture and comfort problems that are being experienced heavily in the workplace. According to research conducted by Fellowes, 79% of British workers claim that using a laptop, notebook or other mobile devices are causing them sickness in the workplace. One way you can improve your posture when using a laptop is to make sure the screen is at eye-level. This causes less strain on your neck and can also reduce eye strain.
A laptop stand is designed to raise the height of your device and offer you better ergonomic support. A typical laptop can sit anywhere between 15 - 35cm below your eye level - depending on your height and the size of your laptop. This causes your neck to hang forward in an uncomfortable position for hours on end. You can choose to use an ergonomic stand with an additional keyboard and mouse to better create your own ergonomic workstation that suits your needs and comfort. A stand is also a great way to increase the airflow with your laptop. Some laptops have air vents that are located on the bottom of the device. By raising the laptop off a flat surface, the airflow between the hardware can be improved - this comes in handy if you’re using an older laptop that is prone to overheating.
There are a few other things you can do to minimise injuries and discomfort when using a laptop.
Don’t use your laptop on your lap
When possible, make sure you are using your laptop on a flat desk. Using it while sitting down on the couch will quickly cause neck pain and a bunch of other possible injuries.
Use an ergonomic mouse and keyboard
When using a laptop, your wrists and elbows are positioned at a very uncomfortable position. By using another mouse and keyboard, you can better position your work area to suit your body size and comfort requirements.
Use an additional monitor
If you use an additional monitor, use a monitor riser to get the screen at your exact eye-level.
Besides increased comfort and support, a laptop stand can help with:
With a laptop stand you can position your screen to reduce sun glare at certain times of the day. The Ergo Q2 comes with a range of angle options (4.3” - 9.4”) so you can adjust the position of your screen as you get the afternoon sun at your workstation.
A messy desk
Many of our stands come with document holders or organisers that can help free your desk of any clutter.
