About

Laptops and tablets are great tools for productivity, but can cause eye fatigue due to Digital Eye Strain (DES) when used without proper lighting. Their low position also leads to “laptop hunch”, a condition which causes back, shoulder, and neck soreness or pain.

After suffering from the effects of poor ergonomics & Digital Eye Strain firsthand for years, we set out to create a solution. AURA is the world’s first portable laptop and tablet stand to reduce DES and other Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) that result from prolonged device use. By using bias lighting, AURA equalizes the light level throughout your field of view, reducing eye irritation and stress.

What is Digital Eye Strain?

Digital Eye Strain (DES) is the eye irritation which typically occurs after 2 or more hours of screen use. 

What are the Symptoms of DES?

  • Eye fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Irritated or dry eyes

Placing what’s called “bias lighting” behind the screen that’s being viewed can help equalize the light level throughout your field of view, reducing Digital Eye Strain. Since the light originates from outside of your line of sight, you get the benefits of proper ambient lighting without the problems of a light source shining directly into your eyes or screen glare — as explained further by Dr. S.H.A. Begemann of the Technical University of Eindhoven

When active, AURA raises screen height by approximately 2 inches. AURA is collapsible, and is concealed by your personal device when not in use. Compatibility includes laptops & tablets over 9" (229mm) wide.

AURA elevates your keyboard to an angle of approximately 10 degrees, improving device ergonomics and sitting posture.
