Posturite Board Writing Platform / Document Holderby Posturite
| Additional Resources Usage Tips |
The Posturite Board Writing Platform and Document Holder is a magnetic desktop easel designed for anyone whose job involves handwriting, research, drawing or drafting. The unit can be inclined vertically from 18° to 35° allowing the user to maintain a healthy alignment of the spine whether reading, writing, drawing, or simply making notations.
The easel comes in two sizes, Large and Mini. The Large model has a generous work surface measuring 22.7" by 16" (57 cm by 40 cm). The smaller model offers a more compact area measuring 15" by 15.75" (38 cm by 40 cm). Both models come with a magnet to secure loose or stapled reference materials, and both are overlaid with two sheets of blotting paper, creating a smooth and comfortable working surface.
The Posturite Board can accommodate books and other bound materials with the addition of the optional Book Ledger Accessory, or the optional Dual Purpose Book Holder Accessory. Another optional accessory—the Posturite Board Keyboard Holder— is designed specifically for wheelchair users and the visually impaired. The Keyboard Holder attaches a standard keyboard to a Posturite Board for ease of typing and to save space. The Keyboard Holder comes with a padded wrist rest.
The Posturite Board is solidly constructed, and finished with textured vinyl and gold trim. Rubber feet ensure slip-free stability on any table or desk top.
Facilitates Good Upper Body Posture
- Places materials at eye level, allowing the user to sit upright when working. Reduces the risk of upper back and neck strain caused by bending the neck or hunching over the desk.
Reduces the Potential for Shoulder Strain
- Sturdy construction fully supports the weight of the arm, relieving strain on the shoulder and neck.
Eliminates Reach Beyond the Comfort Zone
- Allows the user to position numerous reference, writing or drawing materials well within the comfort zone, and alongside each other at the same viewing distance and angle.
Easily Accommodates "Big Picture" Thinking
- The large surface area gives visually oriented users plenty of space to lay out and rearrange 3 x 5 cards, sticky notes, flowcharts, graphs, concept webs or mind maps, as well as physical groupings of images and other design elements (such as fabric or wallpaper samples).
- Sturdy Construction: Designed for writers, editors, illustrators, designers, artists, scholars and teachers. Suitable for use by the most discerning professional, in high traffic educational environments, or day-to-day use in an office or home.
- Adjustable Angles: The position of the easel can be set at four vertical angles to suit the personal comfort and working style of the user or the needs of the task, without compromising ergonomic benefits.
- Generous Work Surface: Supports numerous sheets of paper alongside, above or below each other.
- Magnetic Surface: Allows the user to secure documents and other papers to the easel with the included magnet, eliminating the need for a lip on the easel, which would create pressure on the underside of the forearm. Can also be used as a magnetic bulletin board.
- Blotting Paper: Included blotting paper creates a smooth and comfortable base for writing and drawing.
- Rubber Feet: Ensure slip-free placement on tables and desks.
- Durable 10" Hinge: The ten inch hinge on the lower edge of the Posturite Board allows it to be folded completely flat for convenient storage and transport.
- Freestanding: Can be repositioned or relocated as required.
