Laptop use is definitely becoming associated with neck pain, at least with pain in my neck. Typing on my lap means there is no way for the screen to be viewed comfortably, since it requires me to look downwards at an angle.
Today’s invention is an adaptation to existing laptop design consisting of two hinged supports, as shown. These would carry the cabling from the base to the screen and employ the same resistive pivots as a screen normally has.
The new part is really that it allows the screen height and angle to be adjusted independently and over a much greater range than is possible with existing approaches…leading to less craning and joint strain.
