About

 

In today's digital age, we use our laptops 24/7. Long hours of usage in such positions puts TREMENDOUS stress on our necks and backs: 

posture problems on table and lap

Familiar sight? Each time you use your laptop on the desk or lap, you are accelerating your posture degeneration

Ugly postures often results in annoying backaches that can often last for days and hurt your backbone over the long term.

Do you get neck & back aches?
Do you get neck & back aches?

Check yourself now. How bad is your posture?
0 deg: 4kg || 15 deg: 12kg || 30 deg: 18kg || 45 deg: 22kg || 60 deg: 27kg

If you are in the bold zone, you are damaging your neck and back.

Existing laptop stands are non-versatile. 

  • Most come in fixed heights
  • Require use of an external keyboard
  • Almost none have lap support
  • Most are bulky, heavy
  • Another item to carry around


And your laptop sleeve/bag?
It was just chucked aside and unused the whole time you were using your laptop.

Fulcrum Sleeve transforms into a stand with a simple locking mechanism. Bring your Fulcrum Sleeve anywhere you want and correct your posture on the go.  

 

 

 Fulcrum Sleeve has 6 different configuration for Lap & Table, ensuring that you can always find the most comfortable position while working on your laptop. 

 

Fulcrum Sleeve can support the heaviest of laptops, including the weight of your wrists as you rest on it (maximum 5kg - 7kg), thus allowing you to work on your laptop at ease. Fulcrum Sleeve is also made of water resistant material.

 

Fulcrum comes in a selection of amazing colours and sizes. You can refer to the specifications for more detail. If you are unsure, you can leave a message on our Facebook page.

 

 

 

 

 

Fulcrum Sleeve was conceived because we felt that laptop sleeves were something that were under-utilised. Once we take our laptop out of the sleeve, we either chug it to one side or place it under our laptop. So why not turn it into something useful? After weeks of sketching and prototyping, we created something that we think you would love to have.

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the successful funding of our campaign, we will be using a portion of the funds towards our final design stage of the Fulcrum Sleeve. This has been accounted for in the timeline and funding goal. Certain features we intend to improve: 

1. Testing quality elastic bands for the straps of Fulcrum Sleeve to ensure it can hold any laptop of any thickness. 

2. Further improvement of the support mechanism for Fulcrum Sleeve. Based on users’ suggestions, we will be testing a new support structure with 2 prongs both ends of the sleeve, greatly increasing the stability of the stand.
