With remote work on the rise and digital positions flying off the job boards like hotcakes, employees of the world are sitting in front of computers at an alarmingly high rate. Back and neck pain have become occupational hazards of office workers, creating a notable need for standing desks. However, these expensive models take up a lot of space and rarely allow you to sit down when you really need it. So how do you solve the problem? A better laptop bag, that's how.
Rovingwork, a Melbourne based startup that's passionate about creating products for today's mobile workers, has developed something truly amazing for those of us plagued with neck and back pain from the digital life: MOBICASE. This ergonomically-designed laptop bag has all the features you need to stay organized during your busy day. And, most importantly, it props up your laptop so your spine doesn't poke out the top of your back while you type.
“As the trend towards mobile working continues, we’re seeing workers spending more and more hours hunched over their laptops in cafes, libraries, co-working hubs and airport lounges, adding unnecessary strain to their backs and necks and putting them at risk of injuries and back pain,” said Tim McKenzie, managing director of Rovingwork in a press release.
In addition to the convenient laptop lift, the MOBICASE has a vast array of features that would make any mobile worker happy. From the water-resistant exterior coating and the secure magnetic flaps to the incredible laptop ventilation system and the high density protective case, your work space will go from poorly-designed mess to a well-organized productivity machine.
“We hear people being frustrated at their inability to find well designed products that manage their work & personal gear and suit their mobile lifestyle. This is why we’ve created the MOBICASE, to help people stay organized and work effectively, without damaging their back/neck, no matter where their work takes them,” said McKenzie.
Rovingwork has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the MOBICASE and, as of writing this article, has already surpassed it's $25,000 goal with a little less than a month to go. There are still early bird models available for as low as $89, so get on it! Your back and neck will thank you.
