Effect of two Notebook stands on work posture and productivity
van Lingen, P.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of using a notebook stand on the physical load when working with a notebook in a home environment. Sixteen subjects evaluated working with a notebook by performing three different tasks using two notebook stands and without using a notebook stand. Body posture, productivity, perceived fatigue and comfort / discomfort and personal preference were measured. The authors found that subjects have significantly less neck flexion when using a notebook stand compared to using only a notebook. They also rated significantly less subjective fatigue in the neck when using a notebook stand. From this study, it can be concluded that the neck posture is objectively more neutral and subjectively less fatiguing. www.humanfactors.nl
