The Microdesk™ is so easy to use.
You can position it behind or over the top of your keyboard.
The Microdesk can be placed behind the keyboard for ease of use when you need to copy or refer to documents while you type.
When you need to spend time reading information or writing you can then easily slide it over the keyboard closer to you.
Touch typists will be able to type easily with it over their keyboard.
The Microdesk allows you to easily write on files or documents as its gentle slope does not force the wrist into awkward positions.
You no longer need to bend over documents and files kept flat on the desk top.
This document holder removes the need to stretch to reach a keyboard that has been positioned behind a pile of paperwork.
Your improved sitting posture maintains you spine in its natural position thus helping to prevent back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain.
The Microdesk has been designed to help computer users who spend alot of time working from hard copy avoid placing the documents to the side of the keyboard.
When writing on the Microdesk™ it is important to:
Keep your elbows within range of your body, no reaching out.
Write with a bent elbow not a straight arm so you can access the function and number keys of the keyboard beneath the front edge of the Microdesk™.
Rest your forearm comfortably on the platform on top when using the Microdesk™ for writing.
Keep your chair close to the desk and your mouse close to the keyboard.
Keep your back and feet well supported, and your shoulders and neck relaxed for work.
The Microdesk™ suits left and right-handed writers.
There is a removable lip at the base to stop your papers from sliding off – don’t lean your wrist on the high lip while writing, keep to the side where there is a flat area OR change to the low lip profile.
The ruler / line guide is included with all desk models.
For conventional flat desktops.
Can also be used as a stand-alone writing surface to prevent stooping in a standing position, for example, on nursing carts at the patient's bedside.
Front height adjusts from 3" – 3¾"
Rear height adjusts from 6" – 7 ½"
Width: 23"W x 12"D.
|Sean D. on 25/04/2017||My daughter uses this for school and has found it to be helpful.|
|Catherine B. on 25/02/2017||Arrived on time and was as advertised|
|turns out it was worth it|
|Niall O. on 09/08/2016||I agree that this 'microdesk' is a prohibitively expense piece of plastic, but I do love it. My partner loved it so much that they got one too. I am looking between papers and computer screens all day long for work, and I'd often have to do that annoying thing where you put your papers between you and the keyboard. reach across to type, and fold and unfold your neck repeatedly to look between the papers and screen. The microdesk not only increases my available working surfaces, but really helps my neck. My keyboard also fits under it with a few inches to spare for a tidy look when I'm away (or feeling really confident with my typing). I did a lot of research before committing to this one, and it seemed like it met my needs/desires the best. Some light assembly is required. My partner was complaining of squeaking, but that all stopped when I pressed the pieces together tighter. The angle of the desk are adjustable using the feet that screw in. There's an option of using a low bottom ledge piece (~1/3 inch) or a taller ledge piece (~3/4 inch).|
|I really like this slanted work desk|
|Peter H. on 21/08/2017||I really like this slanted work desk. It's relieved my headache and neckstrain that I got from reading copy that was flat on my desk.|
|Love this desk|
|Frank F. on 23/06/2017||Love this desk! My ergonomics consultant recommended it. At first I didn't think I needed it but now I love it! Saves space on my desk too.|
|this is perfect for the office desk|
|Ms Eleanor D. on 05/12/2016||Skeptical at first, but because of upper back and neck injuries, this is perfect for the office desk. I will purchase one for home soon.|
|Raé K. on 22/10/2017||This holder has really helped my neck! I was having neck pain from twisting at my desk. My husband added a taller piece of plastic along the bottom as I use frequently use binders. He also added a piece of plastic along the side that holds a pen. I like the fact the holder adjusts to good heights too. It is definitely sturdy enough to use for writing. Overall - is good, but a little pricey considering I had to modify it a bit to make it fully functional for my purposes.|
|Kay O. on 07/10/2016||Was skeptical at first, but I love all the options it gives. Space on top provides lots of room for you to spread out paperwork.|
|Easily accommodates little files whether editing|
|Debra F. on 02/02/2017||We've now purchased three of these. Document holders simply create more difficulty when you're working with three or four open files and various pages. This is the answer! Easily accommodates little piles whether editing, researching, composing . . . a GREAT find and worth the money!|
|Frank F. on 02/04/2017||would like it to angle a little more, but otherwise, it's perfect for me|
