Research shows that using dual monitors boosts productivity. However, using side-by-side monitors isn’t always optimal because of the large gap between the monitors, diminishing the view. The side-by-side setup also spans outside of people’s peripheral vision which can lead to neck strain.

NexPad’s solution is a second display at an elevated height that can reduce neck strain and help improve posture, boosting productivity and convenience.

“We are launching NexPad to enable the modern professional to be more productive in the ever more mobile workplace,“ said Emre Kosmaz, CEO and founder of Nex Computer.

LG Smart Monitor could be useful for those who want a small TV and a large PC monitor in one package
