It is no secret that people are spending an increasing amount of time indoors and in front of their computer screens this year due to the pandemic, especially our children who are learning virtually from home. While many schools have done a good job of making sure that all students have a device, let’s be honest, those devices are small. As such, many families are adding an additional monitor to their home classroom to improve the quality of learning, as well as, reduce the strain on their kid’s eyes and back.
Standing at 4.75” tall, the Raise by FluidStance is the perfect supplement to any home office or classroom and provides a solution to ensure that your standalone monitor or desktop screen is perfectly aligned at eye-level for optimal ergonomics. Its elegant and minimalist appearance can be used on any stable work surface – from your kitchen counter to your work desk or dining room table.
If your young scholar’s school day is anything like ours, they have multiple live calls each day with independent work sprinkled in-between. We find that by pushing live sessions to the “big screen,” our students can better pay attention to the lesson, which encourages participation and prevents strain on their eyes. By elevating the monitor a few inches, we’re also able to store commonly used items that are needed for class, such as workbooks and a dry erase board.
The same can be said if you’re working from home. Wherever you’re working, the ergonomic design of the Raise will de-clutter your workspace and enhance your productivity. It will help elevate your computer monitor to eye-level for optimal ergonomics and reduce neck pain, eye strain, and poor posture. Give yourself and your family comfort with Raise as one of the tech gifts you can’t live, or work, without.
