The Ergo-T340 from Bakker Elkhuizen is a versatile office notebook and laptop stand that provides an impressive array of features and capabilities. The adjustable height lets individuals elevate their laptop screen to reduce the downward bend required when a laptop is placed directly on a desk or table. The patented inline document holder keeps reference documents centrally located to further reduce unnecessary bending and rotation of the neck (when used with an external keyboard and mousing device). The document holder can also serve as a tablet or phone holder for those whose work requires use of multiple devices. With the addition of the optional Port Replicator Housing Module, it can also accommodate a docking station for quick connection to the office peripherals.
The Ergo-T340 is intended primarily for use at an office desk and as such is heavier and more robust than many other stands that are designed around the need for portability. The Ergo-T340 offers up to 7" of screen elevation that is easily adjusted while the laptop is in place on the stand. It is also equipped with a swivel base for ease of viewing from multiple locations or multiple individuals, offers cable management, laptop cooling sleeves, an inline document holder, and is easily secured with a single computer cable lock. An optional unique universal housing accessory (Port Replicator Module - PRM) integrates any port replicator (docking station) or USB hub to pre-connect all peripherals, making it ideal for the power user who requires quick connectivity.
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 raising the laptop screen, the Ergo-T340 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".

Prevents Overreaching and Twisting to View Reference Documents - 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.
Swivel Base Provides Convenient Adjustment - The swivel base allows quick access to turning the laptop (and stand) to the desired position quickly and precisely. Combined with the angle adjustment this means that uncomfortable screen glare from overhead lighting or windows is easily eliminated.
Six Angled Settings for Height: To accommodate different monitor viewing heights there are 6 angled settings ranging from 20° to 40°. The height at the back of the stand at its highest is 10.4" (26.3 cm). This means that the "bottom" edge of any laptop screen can be positioned at least 10.5" "above" the desk surface.
Complete Universal Workstation Solution: The sturdy design and value-added functionality of the Ergo-T340 makes this laptop stand ideal as a complete workstation solution, including a swivel base and cable management for a laptop.
Port Replicator Module PRM340: For those who use a docking station with their laptop, the T340 can be augmented with an optional Port Replicator Module to pre-connect their laptop.
Accommodates a Wide Range of Laptop Sizes: The Ergo-T340 is suitable for laptops or notebooks up to 17 inches wide. Smaller notebooks, if under 8" in depth, will not work on this stand as the screen will not clear the top of the laptop stand.
Fold Up Inline Document Holder: To make data entry faster and reduce neck strain, the Ergo-T340 has a built-in inline document holder that covers the laptop keyboard.
Quality Construction and Design: The ErgoT-340 is made of high quality ABS Plastic and is equipped with rubber anti-slip feet, ensuring a sturdy and secure laptop workstation.
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 on the Ergo-T340 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.
