Roost Where You Wanna; Your Active Office On The Move
Jen MacKaben | July 21, 2016
My laptop is an essential tool in my work and, unfortunately, daily screen use can be uber unhealthy on the body. Although standing desks and active-office seating help to create a more healthy workspace, if you are not elevating your computer monitors or laptop screens to eye level, you are not reaping any ergonomic benefits.
So, when I heard about a radical, new laptop stand that can be used as a mobile active-office workstation, I just had to know what all the hype is about. Introducing my work week with Roost:
This morning I'm more inclined to sit at my desk, so what a great time to test the height adjustability. With my laptop secured in the tray, it was simple to apply pressure to the white side notches, which allow my screen to slide to a lower position. Although, I must admit that it is not as easy to adjust Roost's height to a higher position with the laptop resting in it. Thankfully, momentarily displacing my laptop out of its comfy nest in order to readjust is simple enough.
Today I had the bright idea to try using the Roost without my wireless keyboard and mouse. Okay, so, good news, the stand doesn't fold under the pressure from my wrists resting on my laptop as I extend my arms outward to type. However, this Michael-Jackson-Thriller-dance pose isn't exactly comfortable to work in. After about 20 minutes of this, my arms need a break.
