The 'Roost' laptop stand is like scaffolding for your computer that raises it to a height for proper ergonomic use. Roost's creator Jame Olander was advised by medical professionals to lay off of heavy computer use to allow his nerves to heal. A sore neck, back and wrists can easily be caused by products that are not designed to work with the human body. These problems can escalate to carpal tunnel if strain is continuously put on the body.

The Roost solves many of the problems caused by extended computer use, bringing the screen of the laptop up to meet eye level. The frame of the Roost is collapsible and lightweight, but also very strong -- it is capable of holding over 130 lbs. It puts a steep tilt on laptops, but holds them firmly in place.
