NeckDoctor, an ergonomic monitor arm company, has launched two new products in the region. NeckDoctor for Laptops, a portable ergonomic laptop stand desk workstation, and NeckDoctor for Laptops-L, a height-adjustable ergonomic laptop standing desk workstation, offer high-quality solutions for office and home to prevent improper sitting postures that strain the muscles and connecting tissues around the neck, head, back, spine and shoulder.
NeckDoctor founder and CEO Tarun K. Balani said: “Sedentariness begins with redesigning our workspace and rethinking how we function within that space. Thus, the first step toward solving the sit or stand dilemma is to develop a healthy, balanced approach, combining periods of seated work with periods of standing work through the introduction of a sit-stand paradigm with the help of sit-stand workstations. NeckDoctor allows the user to easily switch between seated work and standing work, while remaining at the same desk. Encouraging users to stand more and sit less helps prevent an inactive lifestyle giving a boost to energy, mood and sleep quality that comes from increased activity.”
The absence of practicing ergonomics can damage our well-being. Sitting all day in an office results in illnesses caused by a sedentary lifestyle such as obesity, diabetes, heart ailments, strained neck and sore shoulders. Employees who suffer from consistent pain and health issues result in inefficiency at work, loss of hours and productivity, all of which affect organizational growth and revenue in the long term. Alternating between seated work and standing work has been shown to benefit both human health and work productivity. Studies have shown that varying periods of sitting work with periods of standing work helps measurably reduce pain and fatigue complaints in the work environment.
All products are fully certified and strength tested. NeckDoctor for Laptops retails at SR699 ($186) + VAT while NeckDoctor for Laptops-L is priced at SR1,299 + VAT.
“Everyone is looking for a solution and a promise, we offer both. We understand the importance and future of ergonomics in a world where technology has become a way of life. The human body and improving your workplace posture naturally is our prime focus. With the rise in laptop usage, the use of technology extends beyond the office with working from home trending in these pandemic times. Prolonged use and an improper posture is harmful to the spine. The human body needs ergonomic solutions and products that are pain relief, natural, medicine free, doctor free and even surgery free,” added Balani.
