Ergonomist Reviews the Nexstand K2 Laptop Stand
The K2 laptop stand from Nexstand is quite different from many of the laptop stands / laptop risers that I’ve worked with.
For starters, it forgoes the standard flat folded shape and instead goes for a cross-shape that easily and quickly unfolds into space.
As far as laptop stands go, this makes it one of the easiest to put out and to put away, once you’ve learned which part of the stand to hold, to put it up and down.
So it’s really useful if you’re moving around a lot, or tidying away your laptop from a kitchen or dining room table to revert to ‘normal’ kitchen or dining room use.

Easily Height Adjustable
The standout advantage is that it raises your laptop up in space, bringing the screen up to a really good height. A lot of laptop stands miss out on this advantage.
It’s the X-shaped design that enables this to happen, and I applaud it. We’re all for correct screen heights at Posture Stars.
If your laptop screen is too low, it’s either going to hurt today, or not long into the future – definitely worth sorting out ASAP!
Light and Reasonably Compact
It’s also very light, and once it has folded away into it’s included carry bag, it takes up very little room.
If your laptop bag is tight though, a standard ‘flat’ foldaway stand might fit better.
You need a couple of square inches wide and 14 inches length, so bear that in mind.
I liked that the stand came with really quick delivery, and was relatively unencumbered by unnecessary packing or waste.
The cardboard box it arrives in is all, and that’s easily recycled.
The Nexstand company seem genuinely interested in the wellbeing of their clients.
I chose to join the mailing list, and have received a couple of wellbeing-centric emails over the last month, which was a nice touch.
Who's This Review Aimed At?
I’d buy this stand if I was a company looking to purchase a lot of these, or if I were a homeworker who used up communal space during working hours and wanted to free up the space again easily afterwards.
It’s also great for mobile/hybrid workers who need to carry thier laptop stand with them, just check there’s room in your bag.
For these three reasons, it’s a great purchase.
I’m James Crow, I added ergonomics to the Alexander Technique to do a better all-round job.
And I must say, it’s truly great to see companies like Nexstand selling ergonomic tools with a more rounded approach to health, happiness and wellbeing in their customers – about time!
So how are you now, are you sitting comfortably?
