Award-winning Laptop Riser with Wireless Phone Charging Pad Makes Powering Up a Smart Phone Easy and Unencumbered by Cords

New York, NY, CE Week, June 23, 2016 – Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals, today announced two SmartFit® Laptop Risers designed to improve user productivity and comfort levels at the desktop. Kensington’s SmartFit Laptop Riser and award-winning SmartFit Laptop Riser with Wireless Phone Charging Pad allow users to find their personal laptop height setting for optimal comfort to reduce neck and back strain while working. The riser with Wireless Phone Charging Pad simplifies the process of charging a smart phone by eliminating the need for any cable. Kensington will showcase the laptop risers and more products at 2016 CE Week in New York, June 22 and 23, booth #204 in the Metropolitan Pavilion.

“We’ve quite literally raised the bar on ergonomic business solutions with the introduction of our two new SmartFit Laptop Risers,” said Ada Yang, senior global product manager, Kensington. “Whether they work at home, in an office, or on the road, a wide range of laptop users will be able to tap into higher levels of comfort and productivity when they employ these new products.”

With more than 20 years of expertise creating ergonomic solutions to increase productivity, Kensington’s patented SmartFit System demystifies ergonomics, making it easy for users to install and customize their workspace with accessories that fit their ergonomic comfort requirements. The company developed SmartFit using U.S. Army research that found a direct correlation between the size of hand and body measurements. Every SmartFit product includes a hand chart in the box, helping each user find the correct SmartFit color setting that will deliver optimum ergonomic comfort.

Both risers are also Zero Footprint enabled so users can mount a compatible Kensington universal dock underneath the laptop platform, keeping their desktops less cluttered.
