The Ergo-Q 330 Notebook Stand from Bakker Elkhuizen is a more economical version of the industry leading Ergo-Q Ultra-Portable Laptop Stands, also manufactured by Bakker. The Ergo-Q 330 features the same patented in-line document holder that conveniently positions documents just below the laptop screen to minimize unnecessary bending and rotation of the neck. The document holder can also serve as a tablet or phone holder for those whose work requires use of multiple devices.
The Ergo-Q 330 offers six height settings, ranging from 4.3 to 7.5", for optimizing screen elevation and document viewing angle. Although the durable ABS construction is slightly heavier and bulkier than the Ultra-Portable stands, when folded for transport this stand is still just 9" wide, 12.2" deep, 0.5" thick, and weighs just 1.07 pounds. This means the Ergo-Q 330 is still highly portable and will meet the transportation requirements of most individuals.
Improves Body Posture and Comfort Level - When a laptop is used on a standard desk (so that the bottom of the screen is essentially only 1-2" above the tabletop), individuals are forced to look downward at the screen, bending their neck and adopting a stooped posture. By elevating the laptop screen, the Ergo-Q 330 allows them to straighten their back, neck and head when looking at the screen, improving comfort and avoiding potential injuries due to poor posture and 'hunching'.

Avoids Neck Pain - The integrated inline document holder lets reference materials be placed centrally, directly between the individual and the laptop screen. With the documents centrally positioned as well as elevated and angled for optimum viewing, the need to overextend when organizing documents or twist the neck in order to view them, is eliminated. This greatly reduces these awkward repetitive movements of the neck or back.
Six Angled Settings for Height: To accommodate different monitor viewing heights there are 6 angled settings ranging from 20° to 40°. When at the highest setting the back of the stand is at 7.6" (19.3 cm).
Highly Portable: The compact lightweight design of the Ergo-Q 330 makes carrying this laptop stand easy and setup takes seconds
Quality Materials: Despite the lightweight and simple design of the Ergo-Q 330, the materials are nevertheless strong and protective. Rubber non-slip feet resist slippage, making this mobile laptop workstation sturdy and secure.
Wide Range of Laptop Sizes: The Ergo-Q 330 is suitable for laptops or notebooks up to 17 inches wide.
Inline Document Holder: To make data entry faster and reduce neck strain, both Ergo-Q models have a built-in inline document holder that covers the laptop keyboard.
Can Also Serve to Hold a Tablet or Phone: When not working from paper documents, the built-in inline document holder can serve as a tablet or phone holder, offering ergonomic viewing. The addition of a multi-channel bluetooth keyboard that can support connection to multiple devices can create a truly efficient and ergonomic portable workstation solution.

Use the angle adjustment feature to elevate your screen. Optimum viewing height (top of screen at eye level) may not be fully achievable but the closer you can get to this point, the less strain there will be on your neck.
Whenever possible, place paper reference documents on the built-in inline document holder. Doing this will reduce the need to turn to the side or to look down at your screen. Not only will this be beneficial to your neck and back, it may also improve productivity as it also makes it much easier to compare data on the screen with that on the reference documents.
