Who created zoomStand?
zoomStand was a collaborative effort by two friends who needed more out of their various laptop stands, desk risers, tablet holders and props. From being restricted by injuries and forced into uncomfortable computing positions in bed, to traveling and needing a reliable and portable laptop desk, the zoomStand was created.

When and where can I get a zoomStand?
zoomStand is currently in the prototyping stage and is not yet available to the public. Sign up to be an Early Adopter to receive updates and be the first to own a zoomStand on its (TBD) release date.
Where can I use zoomStand?
zoomStand can be used anywhere with any device. It is designed to work independent of a desk, but can used in conjunction with one too! zoomStand’s modular design with independent telescoping legs (similar to a camera tripod) allows it to be used while sitting at your desk, on our couch or as a portable standing desk. It quickly and neatly collapses so it can be used on the go – in the airport, in your hotel room, or can even be used as a projector stand at your next meeting.
Future zoomStand accessories include a detachable ”lap pad” if you want to place the zoomStand on your lap and a treadmill adapter to turn your treadmill into a walking desk.

Why do I need a zoomStand?
A search on Amazon will show over 25,000 tablet and laptop holders – all designed with a different function and mobile device in mind. Why not have one that can do the job of all 25,000? Ok, so maybe zoomStand can’t replace the duties of every product on the market, but we think we’ve come fairly close.
Tablet usage is predicted to grow by 177% within the next two years,*1 completely overtaking traditional desktop computer and laptop usage, which means we will increasingly be working on the go and away from any suitable working space. The majority of adults in the USA use more than one mobile device during the course of their day, creating a need for a versatile accessory that can hold, prop or display their mobile device, no matter what device it is or where they are.
Most importantly, sitting for prolonged periods is flat out dangerous for your health.*2
- Sitting for 6+ hours per day creates a 40% greater chance of dying within the next 15 years than if you sit for less than 3, exercise or no exercise.
- You chance of dying from a heart attack increases 54% if you sit for the majority of the day.
- Office job employees (people who primarily sit) have 2x the rate of cardiovascular disease as people who work on their feet.
- After only 2 hours of sitting, good cholesterol in your body drops 20%.
- For the internet & gaming addicts – after 24 hours insulin effectiveness drops 24% and risk of diabetes rises considerably.
zoomStand allows you to work standing up or in alternative sitting positions, releasing pressure on your posterior. We are developing adapters to be used with treadmills – turning your zoomStand into a walking desk for about 10% of the price and make a positive impact on your health.
