The Ergo-Q Ultra Portable Laptop Stands from Bakker Elkhuizen are ingeniously engineered to offer numerous features packed into an ultra-compact and ultra-portable package. Manufactured with ultra-light HYLITE® aluminum composite, the Ergo-Q Laptop Stands each feature 5 different elevation positions, offering over 5" (12.7 cm) of height adjustment for screen elevation. Raising the laptop screen reduces the downward bend in the neck and/or torso required when a laptop is placed directly on a desk or table. Ergo-Q stands also have a patented inline document holder that conveniently positions documents just below the laptop screen to minimize unnecessary bending and rotation of the neck when viewing and adjusting reference material. If not using paper documents the document holder can also serve as a tablet or phone holder for those whose work requires use of multiple devices.
Ergo-Q Stands are ultra-mobile - only 0.28" (0.7 cm) or 0.35" (0.9 cm) thick when folded for transport - and lightweight - 0.86 lbs (390 grams) or 0.95 lbs (430 grams)! Note: These stands are designed to be used with an external keyboard and mouse. The document holder on the BNEQ-260 folds down to provide access to the laptop keyboard (if required for adjusting brightness or contrast, for example).
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. Elevating the laptop screen permits 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 locates reference materials 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 to twist the neck in order to view them, is eliminated. This greatly reduces these awkward repetitive movements of the neck or back.
Five Angled Settings for Height: To accommodate different monitor viewing heights there are 5 angled settings ranging from 20° to 50°. The height at the back of the stand is highest at 9.4" (23.8 cm) for the 220 model and 8.3" (21.0 cm) for the 260 model.
Ultra Portable: The slim lightweight design of the Ergo-Q 220/260 makes carrying either of these laptop stands virtually effortless.
Quality Materials: Despite the lightweight and simple design of the Ergo-Q 220/260, the HYLITE® aluminum composite materials are nevertheless strong, protective, and resistant to slippage, making your laptop workstation sturdy and secure.
Wide Range of Laptop Sizes: Both models of the Ergo-Q are suitable for laptops or notebooks: up to 15 inches wide for the 220 model and 15.6" for the 260 model.
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. The 260 model offers the ability to fold down the document holder to provide access to laptop keyboard when required.
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.
