This immensely helps when you're laying down and reading something, or maybe you want to watch TV while laying down or use your phone while doing so.
The problem with head flexion angles created when using phone or reading
“People get so focused on these devices that they end up holding their neck and upper back in abnormal positions for a long period of time; enough that other people coined the phrase ‘text neck,’ which is essentially referring to postural pain,” says Chris Cornett, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon and spine specialist at the University of Nebraska Medical Center Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Cornett continues, “When you hold your body in an abnormal position, it can increase stress on the muscles, cause fatigue, muscle spasms, and even stress headaches."
"Text Neck" Risks
A study by Lee and colleagues published in the October 2014 issue of Ergonomics found that repetitive or prolonged head flexion posture during smart phone use is a risk factor for neck pain. The study looked at 18 participants who performed 3 tasks with a smart phone: Texting, browsing and watching a video. Participants did these activities while sitting and also when standing.
Not only did the study identify head flexion associated with heavy smart phone use as a risk factor for neck pain, it also found that of the 3 activities, texting may be the biggest contributing factor to device use related neck pain. (The authors say that texting is the most frequently performed of these functions.) In the study, texting while sitting caused the largest degree of head flexion.
Latzy turns your sight horizontally down by 90 degree. This way, you can keep your neck and spine straight while at the same time use your phone, watch TV or read your favourite book.
Latzy isn't just for lazy people, it's for everyone who wishes not to hurt their neck and backs while reading or watching TV.
