How to choose a laptop stand?

Many people today work on a laptop every day. The undeniable advantage of laptops is their high mobility, which is why they are popular not only for work, but also for study and leisure. The fact that the screen of a laptop is lower than that of a computer means that the neck and back suffer during prolonged use. If you don’t have the option of adjustable desk height, or don’t want to sit too low in a chair at your desk, you need to look down on your laptop.

This is certainly not good for your back, shoulders or your neck in the long run of regular work. Gradually, the muscles in this area become stiff, which also affects the posture of the spine and can cause headaches. Therefore, it is advisable to prevent these problems by ergonomics of the space, including a proper laptop stand. You will then be able to work more comfortably for much longer.

Ergonomic laptop stands

With a laptop stand you can create a healthy working environment for your body very quickly and easily. And you don’t even have to invest any huge sums. Laptop stands are affordable. Moreover, ergonomic laptop stands don’t have to be used only at home or at work, but can be used anywhere and anytime. Ideally, you should choose a laptop stand that folds up easily and you can pack it in your laptop bag or backpack and carry it with you everywhere all the time. Working from anywhere is almost commonplace today, just as homeoffice has become.

More than 20 stands

Laptop stands are a handy tool for outfitting your home office to homeoffice. MISURA offers around 20 different models and types of laptop stands in a range of MISURA ERGO. You can choose laptop stands for homeworking that are neither adjustable nor very stackable. However, they are solid and visually attractive. They are useful if you know your working environment (desk height, etc.) and the stand does not need to be constantly adjusted to the current conditions. For the home office, the ME11, ME16, ME09, ME06, ME10, ME14 or ME08 laptop stands are suitable.

Furthermore, laptop stands are portable and stackable, which you can take with you anywhere. They are also useful as “lecterns” if you are giving a lecture, need to talk to people and at the same time see the laptop, or work with it without having to bend down all the time. With a laptop stand, your laptop monitor will be at eye level, and you can easily attach a keyboard to keep your hands more comfortable and not suffer in the long run. Customize your work according to the size of the space in your home.

Material, design, storage and compatibility

When choosing the right laptop holder, think not only about its appearance – it goes without saying that you’ll want it to look good and fit in with your décor – but also consider its material, storage and function. It’s important that the stand you choose is compatible with your laptop. So make sure the stand fits the size of your laptop beforehand. The size of the diagonal plays a major role in this case

You should also consider whether you will only use the stand at home or at work, or whether you want to travel with it. If you often work in cafes or shared offices, you will appreciate it if the weight of the stand is not too heavy and the holder can be folded easily

Last but not least, ask yourself what you would like the stand to do. Naturally, you expect it to hold your computer at least at eye level. However, it will be great if the ergonomic stand is height-adjustable. You’ll especially appreciate this when working in different locations. Another gadget is the swivel option, where you can simply share your work with your colleagues or clients. You turn the laptop on the stand towards them, and they won’t have to stand behind your back

That being said, the stand can also help against laptop overheating. When choosing, also look to see if there are holes on the stand for passive cooling. A non-slip surface will also be of no lesser benefit, with which you can be sure that your laptop won’t fall off the stand

The pandemic has left many of us to work from home, and while the conditions may not be ideal for this in your apartment/house, it’s a good idea to create a working environment where you’re not only not disturbed, but more importantly, you’re not ruining your health. Think about sitting at your desk and choose resources that will make your work and your life easier

MISURA stands for a healthy working environment

Practical and height-adjustable MISURA stands of various types can raise your laptop to your eye level so that you can sit upright while working, saving your neck and back muscles. This also creates space for an external keyboard and mouse on the desk, which is also a good prevention for elbow and hand and wrist health problems, as the classic laptop keyboard is not very suitable for long-term work. It allows you to create a perfectly equipped office literally anywhere

Stands for better laptop ventilation

Raised stands with holes in the middle improve airflow , ventilation and cooling so that the laptop does not overheat even when working for long periods of time. Laptops are shipped and used in their entirety and therefore have overheating issues that the stands help solve

A stand is ideal for cooling a laptop if:

  • the laptop is very hot, works slowly, overheats or freezes;
  • the temperature of the device has been exceeded, for example in the sun, in summer, in an area with elevated temperature;
  • if you have the laptop on your lap or on the bed for a long time
  • you are working with demanding programs or playing demanding games and the computer has excessive power
  • an AMD processor is installed: such laptops tend to heat up quickly.
