The iPad replaces the laptop – at an ergonomic cost
Portable and powerful, the iPad is in many ways the perfect laptop replacement, especially when moving between home and office. As remote working and flexible working practices become more accepted, more of us than ever before depend on a slim tablet for long-term work.
But an iPad isn’t a natural companion unless accompanied by a well-chosen accessory. Held in hand, it causes arm strain; placed too far away it causes eye strain; and when combined with many of the basic stands on the market today – keyboard stands or stands designed for use with a separate keyboard and mouse – can cause the user to bend over, compromise posture and possibly in the long run causes back and neck pain. issues.

The company’s MagFlött Pro takes the feature set from the previous stand and adds height adjustment, from 12 to 17.5 inches, making it the first and only iPad stand that can be placed at eye level. This is a crucial element in setting up an ergonomic workplace, which ensures a healthy posture and protects the user’s neck and back from long-term pain.

Macworld readers can participate in the campaign until May 10 and save significant savings from the suggested retail price.
