How to reduce the risk of long term injury using your laptop

If you are using your laptop often or for extended periods, you should set up a base station that is ergonomically correctly at your desk with a mouse, keyboard and laptop stand.

Without using the laptop as part of a mobile workstation, long-term neck and shoulder injuries are common. Just think of the strain on your body when you crouch over a laptop screen for long periods.  If you need help finding products that work with your particular set up see our page on Laptop Solutions.
