iPads

Do you love your new iPad? Finally, you can play music, catch up on news, and send a few emails without squinting to see the screen...surely, it's not just me who who needs a good pair of reading glasses to see a screen that small? Regardless, it's pretty liberating to have the ease and portability of an iPod or Blackberry without the bulk or expense of a laptop.

iPad Ergonomics

However many features, apps, and advantages the iPad offers, it can still be an ergonomic problem. As always, no matter what kind of screen you're looking at, it's essential that you not bend your neck for long periods of time. Any screen should be at eye level so that your neck (and even your shoulders) can be in a relaxed, comfortable position. Plus, you want to avoid eye strain from literally straining to see the screen. Rather than just kicking the iPad out the door, you could always try an iPad Ergo Swivel Mount for better positioning. This simple mounting system raises the iPad for better viewing and ergonomic comfort. Its suctions cups mounts to any flat surface and is quite easy to use.

iPad Ergo Swivel Mount Features:

- Handy and effective suction cup with lever action- Easy to install and take off- Quick and easy to get the iPad in and out of the holder- Flexible arm for any angle or orientation
