Using laptop for a lot of time in a wrong posture may cause pains and phisical troubles
Sitting in ordinary chairs for a long time may cause back pain or neck pain (cervical syndrome). The main reason is that standard chairs, and static postures in general, increase the stress on the back, shoulders, arms, neck, legs, stressing the back and lumbar muscles, as well as the discs and joints of the spine.
Why a correct posture is crucial.
Maintaining fixed postures for prolonged periods can subject our bodies to biomechanical stress, disrupting the natural rhythm of our muscles’ contractions and relaxations, which are essential for their proper functioning. This emphasizes the importance of continuously changing positions to alleviate this stress. Additionally, frequent changes of posture play a vital role in facilitating optimal blood circulation through our veins and arteries.
Failing to address these concerns in the long run can lead to permanent deformations and damage to our muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. Moreover, it can contribute to more serious issues, particularly those that commonly affect the spine.
By prioritizing correct posture, we enable our bodies to function optimally, reducing the risk of strain-related injuries and promoting overall musculoskeletal health. Implementing ergonomic practices, such as using supportive furniture like the Lounge-book, can significantly aid in maintaining a healthy and comfortable posture during extended work hours.
Remember, investing in proper posture now can prevent potential health complications and ensure a healthier, more productive future.
Using laptop at home
The two main conditions of use of the laptop at home:
A) as a desktop replacement usually on a desktop with external devices as monitor, keyboard, mouse.
B) as laptop on chair, armchair, sofa, bed. Usually people hold laptop with legs, lap, or ordinary furniture as small tables or bedside tables.
Desktop replacement? Better an Ergonomic Chair with Desktop Riser
If use laptop on the desk, instead of the traditional Desktop PC. The right choice is to buy an ergonomic chair and an external height-adjustable monitor to find the correct posture by adapting the chair to the best position of the body. The height adjustment allows you to find the right support for the arms, while the lumbar support offers support to the spine. It is important to adjust the height of the monitor so as not to strain the eyes and the neck muscles.
