The LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand with USB Charging is an adjustable iPad, tablet and eReader stand that allows any individual to sit, recline or even relax in bed with their device held securely, leaving the hands free while reading, video chatting or viewing videos. A high-quality USB pass-through cable allows the tablet to be charged while mounted and in use (requires USB power source connected to the cable at the base). The rigid sturdy design and weighted base minimize bouncing and greatly reduce the risk of tipping, ensuring uninterrupted viewing comfort. The LEVO G2 Floor Stand has proven to be popular in hospitals, especially on pediatric and geriatric wards, and in special care homes. It is also ideal for those who like to read or watch videos while working out.
The LEVO G2 Essential has convenient features including a quick-release lever lock for easy height adjustment, infinite adjustments to fine tune the positioning of the tablet, and adjustable tension in each movement. The G2 Essential can also be adapted for viewing of traditional books or magazines by purchasing an book platform accessory that can be interchanged with either the original tablet platform or the newer dual clamp tablet cradle.
The included LEVO Dual Clamp Tablet Cradle* works with any size tablet up to 12" including the tablet case, (it is iPad Pro 12.9 compatible without the case). Devices are mounted using a quick-release ratchet mechanism that locks in place. The ratchet is disengaged with a slide of a lever on the rear of the clamp, permitting the clamp to open effortlessly for easy device removal. This simple design means that tablets of any suitable dimensions can be attached or detached in seconds. It may even be possible to mount some larger format smartphones. Clamping ends on the Dual Clamp Cradle are also removable to potentially accommodate tablets whose dimensions may be wider or longer than the maximum.
A second mounting solution, the Tablet Platform, accommodates tablets and eReaders up to 8.7" x 12" weighing up to 4 pounds. A Book Platform Accessory Kit is also available and can be interchanged with either the Tablet Cradle or Tablet Platform to convert the stand into a highly functional book holder.
For those who do not need the tablet cradle, the more affordable CLASSIC model does not include the tablet cradle and comes only with the original tablet platform. * Note: Not compatible with Pro Clamp Accessory.
Hands Free - No Need to Grip - The LEVO G2 Essential is able to hold most tablets firmly in place allowing both passive viewing and physical interaction with the touch surface to type, access information, surf the web, etc. Normally using a tablet requires that one hand maintain a constant grip force on the tablet while the other interacts the tablet surface. The G2 becomes a second set of hands, taking over the holding function and freeing both hands for not only using the tablet, but other activities as well.
Reduces Strain and Fatigue - The design of the G2 Essential lets individuals sit or lie comfortably in the most comfortable position. This eliminates hunching and will reduce strain in the back, neck, shoulders, and arms.
Increases Overall Comfort - The versatile articulation of the LEVO G2 lets it be adjusted to avoid any awkward positions, maximizing comfort.
Adjustable Height - Height is easily adjustable to facilitate optimal ergonomic viewing angle and position.
Effortless Storability - The LEVO G2 arm is easily pivoted out of the way without adjusting the device height or viewing angle. This means that optimum viewing positions can easily be maintained - ready to quickly reproduce the position the individual was in upon their return. The weighted base ensures stability, even when rolling between locations.
4-Axis Articulating Swing Arm: This allows one to place their tablet in the most comfortable, ergonomic reading position. This reduces awkward positions, tired arms, and neck pain while reading.
Compatible With Most Tablets: Supports tablets and eReaders up to 8.7 x 12 inches and weighing up to 4 pounds.
360° Tablet Rotation: Tablets are easily rotated between portrait and landscape orientation, making the LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand as suitable for viewing movies as for reading.
Convenient Charging Extension: The LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand with USB Charging features an integrated USB extension that eliminates cord clutter and reduces the risk of accidentally catching a cord and tipping the sand. The charging extension extends up through the vertical support column and provides a charging port directly adjacent to the table head. Standard charging cords can be plugged directly into the base of the G2.
Lightweight Design for Portability: The low weight of the LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand—just 8 lbs—means it can easily be moved between locations.
Weighted Base for Stability: LEVO G2 Essential Stands have a weighted base to ensures that devices are safely supported.
Slim Base: The right-angle legs are designed to tuck in close to the corner of a chair or sofa. This eliminates the risk of tripping over a base that projects further out into the room.
No Clearance Required: The right angle base and cantilever design of the arm means that it does not require any clearance under furniture. However, if sufficient clearance is available the base can also be positioned with the legs below a chair or sofa, further increasing stability and offering additional positioning options.
Safe and Secure: The ratcheting Tablet Clamp locks to ensures that devices remain secured in place, regardless of angle. On the CLASSIC models bungee cords secure devices to the tablet platform.
Easy Height Adjustment: The height is easy to adjust using a single quick-release lever lock.
Precision Adjustment: Both the Tablet Clamp and the original Tablet Platform are equipped with a friction pivot point that facilitates tablet positioning for optimum viewing comfort in any position.
Can Be Used Lying Down: The G2 Essential stand is even able to hold tablets in a face-down position, easily facilitating use when fully reclined.
Optional Book Platform Kit: The Book Platform Kit is an optional accessory that can be quickly interchanged with either the tablet clamp or platform holder to make this a multipurpose device. It will support books weighing up to 4 pounds.
Adjustable Pivot Resistance: Typically more resistance is required when using a tablet as an input interface, while less resistance may be preferable for ease of adjustment when using it solely for viewing. The tension on the pivot is easily adjusted.
Height Range: Range of movement is between 26" and 43" (measured from floor to center of device).

Model #33755: LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand with USB Charging Base, Dual Clamp Tablet Cradle, Tablet Platform, Bungee Cord Set (4) , Allen Wrench, Assembly and Usage Instructions Model #33755-CLASSIC: G2 Essential Tablet Stand with USB Charging Base, Tablet Platform, Bungee Cord Set (4) , Allen Wrench, Assembly and Usage Instructions
Set your LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand to a height which eliminates a bent neck (either up or down). This will reduce the risk of tension developing in your neck while viewing your tablet.
Since you want to be as relaxed as possible while reading, a pillow or neck support which lets you rest your head can be of great benefit. This gives the muscles of the neck and shoulders a break and can actually have a refreshing effect. As these muscles are usually occupied with supporting the head, especially when the neck is bent, this poor posture can put a constant heavy load on them.
Ensure that your tablet is at a height suited to your viewing capabilities. If you have progressive or multifocal lenses you will want to position it lower than those who do not require this type of corrective lens. However, when doing so always ensure that your neck is at a neutral alignment, directly above the shoulders.
When using your LEVO G2 Essential Tablet Stand ensure that you position it to reduce or eliminate glare from lighting or windows.
Monitor your usage as bedtime approaches. The "blue" light generally emitted from iPads, tablets, and eReaders (to a lesser extent) has been identified as having a negative impact on the production of melatonin, a hormone which induces sleep, and as a result can result in delays in falling asleep as well as lest restful sleep. It is recommended that in the later evening one should reduce their tablet screen brightness and/or their viewing time, or even eliminate it. That may be a period to switch to the optional Book Platform kit accessory and do some non-electronic reading under a more subdued "warm" or "yellow" lighting.
USE your LEVO - While it may be more convenient at times to just pick up your tablet or eReader, remember that what often starts out as a short session can easily turn into hours. Once you start you will probably be preoccupied with the reading or activity and won't think to place your tablet on the LEVO. As a result you would lose out on the benefits of your LEVO during that period.
