Laptop Stand – Relief from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Posted

Laptop Stand - Because Prevention is better than Cure.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an inflammatory disorder caused as a result of repetitive stress that causes tissue around the Median nerve in the wrist to inflate. The Median nerve is a sensory nerve in the wrist that is connected to the thumb, index and ring fingers. Continuous prolong activities like typing, writing or even unhealthy posture cause the tendons and ligaments in the wrist to swell resulting in the compression of the median nerve fibers which in turn slows down the transmission of nerve signals in the wrist. The result is numbness, tingling sensation and even pain in the wrist, hand and fingers.

Modern computing gadgets and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome -

It is almost impossible to imagine our daily life without laptops, tablets or even mobile phones. We spend hours, days typing away data, messages on these devices without giving a thought about its impact on our health. It’s the continuous and prolonged use of these mobile devices and their poor ergonomic design that causes various health issues.

While the laptops, tablets and mobiles are getting slimmer, faster and more efficient by the day, very little thought has been given to make them more ergonomic. The size of these devices, the distance between the keyboard and the screen, using the laptops or tablets on lap, all these leads to incorrect postures, irritated eyes, neck, shoulder and back pains and the most common effect carpal tunnel syndrome. This in turn leads to decreased productivity and inefficiency in the users.

Using an external keyboard and mouse along with an ergonomically designed laptop stand while using your laptop can help correct the posture and decrease the risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Why Laptop Stand?

It raises the laptop screen to an ergonomic height so that you don’t have to tilt your head down or hunch over your shoulders, this in turn encourages good posture and helps prevent or eliminate neck, back and shoulder pain.
