When using a tablet, it is important to do so in the correct way:
- Ensure an upright posture, with the head positioned above the body.
- Raise the screen and tilt it (45°) during use.
- Do not hold the tablet in your hand or in your lap.
- Do not use a tablet for longer than 30 minutes.
- Regularly interrupt your tablet usage with short breaks.
It is known that working with a tablet is detrimental to the neck. The lower the position of the tablet, such as on your lap, the greater the chance of neck and shoulder complaints. It has also been found that constantly holding a tablet causes increased muscle tension in the arm, wrist, and hand. This can cause RSI complaints.
Using a tablet stand such as the R-Go Treepod Bio-based Multistand combined with a separate (or mini) keyboard ensures that you can use your tablet in a healthy way for up to two hours per day. It puts the head in a natural position and releases tension on the neck muscles. It is not recommended to work on a tablet for more than two hours a day. Use a regular PC or a laptop with accessories for this.
