The Happy Lappy was created by Ella, a freelance graphic designer and web developer based in Raglan, New Zealand.
Ella spends the majority or her working days at shared spaces and, after experiencing back and wrist pain, saw an opportunity to create a piece of office equipment that was portable, made from sustainable materials and enhanced the ergonomics of the desk.
Ella is passionate about the design process, and once the stands arrive freshly cut, she then hand sands and brands them, before packaging them up in recycled craft paper to be shipped to their new home. She also saw this as an opportunity to give back to the environment and is excited at the prospect of helping reforest areas around the world in need with EdenProjects.org.
WORKPLACE POSTURE – WHAT’S THE PROBLEM?
It’s no secret that workers who spend their day sitting at a desk working or standing for long periods of time are prone to strains and other injuries.
The Happy Lappy is the perfect piece of equipment to help keep integrity in your posture and to mitigate the risks of strains and injuries that come from long hours behind a computer.
WHAT IF I WORK WITH MORE THAN ONE SCREEN?
The Happy Lappy Large and Medium sizes are the perfect height to prop your computer so it’s level with your second screen.
How do I use it?
The optimum set up is to pair your Happy Lappy with a separate key board and mouse or wacom. This way, the wrists stay flat and there is less temptation to sit forward, putting stress on the spine and neck.
Then when you’re done for the day, simply pull apart the two pieces, pack your bags and you’re ready to go.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about which size is the best fit for your desk set up.
