Attention, college students! You’ve probably heard that doing a lot of sitting is bad for your health. If your dorm room or apartment isn’t able to accommodate a full-sized standing desk, you’ve still got plenty of options to create a more ergonomic workstation for yourself.
Uncaged Ergonomics sells the best ergonomic products online, and we’ve got a perfect option for students: our WorkEZ Light laptop stand. It’s our lightest, smallest, and most portable WorkEZ model: it’s super lightweight and folds to store, which makes it easily to carry with you in your backpack or laptop bag.
What is the WorkEZ Light?
The WorkEZ Light is an affordable standing desk alternative. It’s a simple, compact stand that can hold more than your laptop—it’s also great for holding tablets like iPads as well as textbooks. You can prop up your laptop, tablet, or book at the perfect angle to help prevent hunching over while you read or work. You can adjust the height of the WorkEZ Light up to 12 inches, which can help you position your book, laptop, or tablet at eye level—that’s the ideal ergonomic height for reading.
The viewing angle is adjustable as well—just press the joint button, move the WorkEZ Light to the angle you want, and release. And, keeping your laptop raised off of a surface will help it to stay cool.

Why Choose WorkEZ Light?
The WorkEZ Light is a great multitasker. Not only can you use it to position your reading material or electronics, you can also use it to position your keyboard at a proper typing angle and height. In case you didn’t know, the best ergonomic position for typing is to have your keyboard at elbow height, where your elbows are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Your keyboard should also be tilted at a negative angle, where the top of the keyboard (where the numbers are) should be lower than where your wrists rest.
You can also use the WorkEZ Light on the couch or in bed as a lap desk. It has a fold-out tab at the bottom of the panel that keeps your laptop, tablet, or book from sliding off. Because it’s made from aluminum, it will naturally help dissipate heat from a laptop, which will help prevent overheating—not to mention keeping a hot laptop off of your lap!
You’ve got a lot of work to do when you’re in college, so you want to maximize your efficiency while working—and the WorkEZ Light is one of the best ergonomic products you can buy to help prevent the aches and pains related to poor posture when using a laptop. After all, when you’re not in pain, you work more effectively!
