About

It's like a powerful iron arm, ready to hold your beloved laptop at any time. Its angle can be flexibly adjusted to offer you the most comfortable position. Its impressive ergonomic design will bring you a healthy lifestyle.

The Story

Laptop has become a popular personal device due to its portability. However, it has also generated a lot of troubles for our health. If you are a frequent laptop user, do you sometimes suffer from backache or neck stiffness?

There are actually examples in our team who are suffering from health problems due to long-term use of laptop. In fact, we have tried a variety of laptop desks or laptop stand available in the market with the purpose to mitigate pain, but we found that most of these laptop desks have shortcomings in terms of functionality and usage. Therefore, according to our own experience, we intend to design a laptop desk with the most optimal ergonomic design. With our repeated research and development, we finally have this product presenting to you today. Hopefully it can bring you a healthy lifestyle.

That's OK if you use your laptop occasionally, for short periods. But if you use one for hours at a stretch -- as do millions of college students, business travelers, telecommuters, video-gamers and growing numbers of office workers -- you're setting yourself up for muscle problems that can make your entire upper body hurt.

Ergonomics experts have warned about laptop problems for years — mostly in vain. People continue to abandon bulky desktops in favor of the ever-sleeker, lighter portables. And WiFi connections let us use laptops anywhere — in bed、in sofa、on the floor — in all kinds of contorted positions.

A wrong position can cause pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back and arms, as well as headaches, pains in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and carpal tunnel syndrome, in which pressure on wrist nerves causes tingling and numbness in the hands.

For those hidden health problems caused by laptop itself, we are currently unable to make any fundamental changes, so the most convenient way is to change our posture for using laptop.

What is I IRON ARM ?

It has a fashionable design and powerful functions. It will lead the new era of laptop desk.
