Ergonomic Lap Desks
For your health, a lap desk provides a much safer way to work. Whether you are using your computer for short periods of time or even much longer, you can benefit from a desk that is designed specifically for your laptop. Setting your laptop computer directly on your legs can be unhealthy - research shows that you may be getting to much radiation from this direct contact with your legs. In addition to this, a laptop on your legs is really not high enough to get your arms into a comfortable position, causing strain on your neck and back. A lap desk can elevate your computer just enough to bring you into an ergonomic, comfortable working position.
Laptop Computer Safety
If you tend to set your laptop computer on a pillow or blanket to raise it to comfortable heights, you may be surprised to know that you can damage your computer this way. Laptops need a lot of air circulation underneath them to keep them from overheating - you have probably noticed the amount of heat that can get caught underneath them. A Lap Desk can solve this problem by giving a hard surface for the laptop, allowing the small feet under the computer to raise it enough for some air to circulate underneath!
