Studying can be a "pain in the neck" but it doesn't need to cause literal pain in the neck. Good ergonomics are not only important in an office. They are also important to students. Studying is hard work and you need to give yourself every advantage to make it as efficient and as effective as possible.
One tool that can help is the STUDYPOD Bookholder from GENIO. Designed by a teacher with student input, this book holder is easy to use and very versatile. Its compact format not only holds your book but the tools you need to study that book. Yet it becomes just another one of your books when closed, making transport easy. The STUDYPOD allows you to concentrate on your studies instead of fiddling with keeping your book open and at a comfortable angle.
My oldest daughter has been the main user of the STUDYPOD in our house. She uses it to read her book while eating breakfast and lunch every day. My other daughter uses it to hold her music while practicing the piano. That works well for them both. I like the fact that it holds the book at a comfortable angle. I have had trouble arranging the arms onto the book without it seeming awkward; however, my daughters have not had that experience. I also noticed that the page holder arms leave little dents in the pages of some books. I have not been able to determine if they are temporary or permanent. I am looking forward to using the STUDYPOD in other areas as I can see it being a real asset to good study habits.
The STUDYPOD (BookPod) is available in black, blue, pink, grey and beige for $19.95 or 2 or more for $16.95. If you are not satisfied with the STUDYPOD in any way send it back within 30 days for a full refund.
