MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, October 07, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- New product from a Melbourne Entrepreneur and creator Paul Ayling now live on Kickstarter.
Antstand is designed to prevent neck and shoulder pain caused by prolonged laptop use. The minimal design creates a sturdy support and when flat packed it's slim enough to fit inside the laptop sleeve making it extremely portable.
"My work takes me to many different places throughout the day, and most of that work involves the use of my laptop." explained Paul Ayling, creator of Antstand.
"About three years ago I started to notice stubborn pain in my neck and shoulders that would not go away. Avoiding the use of my laptop was not viable for me so I investigated how I could raise my laptop screen up. The laptop stands that were available were either too heavy or awkward to get into my bag. This was the catalyst for me to design a new type of laptop stand, which became the Antstand.
Antstand is the fruition of 3 year's research and prototyping to create the most minimal, portable and ultimately useful laptop-stand ever. Currently, there is nothing else like it."
The Antstand raises the screen 8 inches and when flat packed it's slim enough to fit inside the laptop sleeve. Antstand is made from sustainable bamboo, fits nearly all laptops from 11-15 inch and weighs just 209 grams.
The Antstand has been launched on Kickstarter. Those interested in getting hold of one can find out more or discover the rewards available using the following link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/antstand/antstand-the-worlds-most-portable-bamboo-laptop-st.

THE PROBLEM WITH LAPTOP USE
Looking down on your laptop screen strains the neck and shoulders. The average head weighs about 10pounds (5kg), it is estimated that looking down onto your laptop screen multiplies the strain on the neck and shoulders by a factor of 6.
The Antstand reduces strain by raising your screen higher to allow a more upright position.
Ultra-portable - fits in your laptop sleeve when not in use.
Sustainable - made from bamboo.
High - raises your screen 8 inches (18 cms) to achieve a neutral position.
Sturdy - the patented design locks the laptop in and creates a sturdy support
Antstand looks great with custom branding. This is a great way for businesses to give back to their people or as a valuable gift to customers. This will be available on the forthcoming Kickstarter.
