Thanks to our increasing need for mobility and instant access to information, laptop computers are no longer a luxury - they are a necessity.
However, we're paying a price for convenience. The ergonomical side effects of constantly using a laptop may carry serious health risks.
The GRACE STAND corrects this problem, providing a unique, portable and flexible surface for adjusting your laptop into an ergonomically correct position.
Inventor Karel Strydom was inspired to create the GRACE STAND during a long-distance flight, when he noticed a man hunched uncomfortably over a laptop, with the screen at an awkward angle and insufficient lighting on the keyboard.
In our brave new world of mobile technology, physiotherapists, chiropractors and optometrists are treating more and more laptop-related injuries. These include disorders such as Repetitive Strain Injuries, Cervical Posture Syndrome (Kyphosis), Cervical Headaches, Rhomboid Muscle Strain or Spasm and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Furthermore, laptop use also causes visual discomfort, forcing users to invest in expensive multi-focal lenses.
It is vital that these issues are addressed in both work and home environments - and the GRACE STAND offers the perfect solution.
