The first usual effect is backache, neck pain and aching arms. when using a "Laptop", you will need to lend down your back and neck. Spending an extended hours in front of a laptop will absolutely add pressure to your back and neck and at the same time will add sore to your arms. 

Bad position indicates bone illness like osteoporosis and fracture; wrong typing position can also cause carpal tunnel syndrome. This is an illness on the nerve to your wrists.

And also, they said laptop is not the finest choice when selecting a computer type. Primarily, the reason for this is because the screen and the keyboard are associated together that prevents a correct arm position from the right level of the screen and your eyes.

Another way is to attach your laptop to a different monitor, mouse and keyboard. Doing this will give you finest position of your body.

If you are working long hours, try to rest for over 20-minutes. In this way, you can rest your eyes, and arms and you can avoid getting the two damaged. Even though the majority of laptop now are LED type which produce a much less radiation that will not cause eye damage but rather an eye stress.

Maintain a regular exercise to make your bones and muscles stronger and can avoid neck pains. Performing wrists exercise can help you to lessen damaging your wrists nerve that often results to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  

So using your laptop for a long period of time without an appropriate position can cause illness and injuries. Take a rest when you feel the above symptoms while working on your laptop.

It is recommended to take a 15-minute break every hour. While doing some paper works, stretch your arms and legs and do other things such as make phone calls or meetings.

Usually the maximum time for use laptop is 2 hours but peoples are use laptop for 10 -12 straight hours a day.

Long time of using a laptop a day may harmful for your eye and shoulder and the laptop become slow as well.

But most of us it is very important to stay on with a laptop for a long time like 5 – 6 hours at straight hours. In that case you may consider an external keyboard and external monitor.

It’s an alternative solution to use a laptop for a long time.

But I prefer whether you use laptop or desktop, don’t use your laptop or portable computer for such a long time.

Wish you good luck.
