Syndyne is developing ergonomic technology. Ergonomics is human engineering. This includes designing microenvironments and their subsystems to optimize human productivity and minimize adverse physical effects.

The human body is a dynamic system. Even while asleep there are constant varied motions.

A computer work station is a subsystem of a human work environment. Among Syndyne's objectives is to optimize the interface between the human body and environmental subsystems which directly effect and interact with the human body.

This is achieved through �Syngineering� �. Syngineering is engineering that achieves synergy with the human body and it's immediate work environment through optimal interface design. Synergy is when the sum of two parts is greater than the two parts taken separately.

The Ergonomic Portable computer (patented) is an example of Syngineering with an optimal interface design allowing maximum productivity with minimum adverse physical effects.

Computer Renderings of Product:

Engineered drawings are also available




The Ergonomic Portable Computer (EPC) is designed for mobile computing use.  It has a built in height adjustable monitor and articulating key board.  These combined features allow for varied neck, back, and arm postures to reduce "repetitive strain injuries".


Worldwide computer related repetitive strain injuries are costing companies hundreds of millions of dollars in combined workers compensation claims, and reduced productivity.  The Ergonomic Portable Computer is the solution.


With notebook computer sales surpassing 30 million units in 2001, the demand for ergonomically comfortable products, and the need for new products to extend ones product line, a licensee is poised to make substantial profits.

Ergonomic Issues


Ergoweb cites, "Laptop use defies most ergonomic principles.  Unfortunately the only person a laptop would 'fit' would be an anatomical mutant with arms exiting their waist and eyes looking out from their chest."


Clearly the primary ergonomic concern when working with notebook or laptop computers is posture.  However lighting, glare, and manual handling can also be issues.  With the new design of the EPC, all issues of ergonomics are satisfied. 


The result:

Increase in comfort in the user and thus an increase in productivity. 


Moreover, with less injury, workers compensation claims and employee absence are reduced.

Superior Portability


Current solutions for correcting the various ergonomic issues consist of docking stations and the use of auxiliary input devices such as a monitor, mouse, or keyboard.  This solution is effective when there are docking stations at the office and at home.  However, this drastically affects the portability of the unit, especially if the notebook computer is needed for business trips, at a hotel, in ones vehicle, etc.  The EPC not only provides ergonomic comfort to the user, but has superior portability to existing solutions.


Manufacturing & Profit Margins


Due to our proprietary position, there are numerous designs available to the licensee, and thus an entire new product line is possible.


The specific embodiment portrayed here uses existing notebook computers as a platform and could be a way of reducing manufacturing cost and accelerating production.


The additional components necessary in developing the EPC consist of the sub-base, the wire management spool and the monitor arm.

Desktop Version:


The Ergonomic Portable Computer has applications for desktop models. The wide spread popularity of  advanced computer games is putting a greater demand for desktop computers. The advanced gaming software often has greater system requirements than is available on most notebook computers.

Many "gamers" are forced to transport their entire desktop computer, (CPU, monitor and keyboard) to "gaming" or "LAN" parties. The Desktop Ergonomic Portable Computer is a compact fully integrated unit with built-in monitor and keyboard for easy transport to remote locations and it's ergonomic too!

A height adjustable monitor and articulating keyboard adjusts to sit or stand positions and it is compact enough to carry with one hand.  The Desktop Ergonomic Portable computer is great for engineers and architects who need to run CAD and other advanced software on site and need the extra computing power of a desktop with built in portability.
