Mobile Working: Laptop bag or trolley?

egonomic_laptop_trolleyBag or trolley?

The fact that mobile working is becoming increasingly routine in organisations means that employers now MUST provide tools that actually enable this.

In the countries surveyed (Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom) I.T. workers agree that the laptop is the key to enabling mobile working. Not surprisingly, most organisations supply their employees with a laptop. Although supplying accessories for a laptop is less common, the survey findings report that more than half of the employers chose to provide a bag or trolley to accompany a laptop. As an employer, when do you decide to supply employees with a trolley?

Ergonomists advise that loads weighing more than 4 to 6.5 kg should not be carried by hand. Employees who carry their laptop and accessories from one workplace to another every day are easily toting 4 to 7 kg. Especially when covering longer distances – for instance people who travel by public transport – a trolley like the TR15 trolley from BakkerElkhuizen is a good idea. This trolley provides not only user comfort but also optimum laptop protection due to its shock-absorbing foam elements and extra large wheels. The professional look of the TR15 trolley makes the bag perfect for taking to a business meeting. In addition to accommodating a laptop of up to 17 inches, its practical storage compartments provide room for accessories and documents.

This also means that they increasingly have to carry a heavy bag around. All too frequently, carrying a laptop and accessories involves the use of a shoulder bag (or other kind of bag) that can cause back strain. The TR15 Trolley has a telescopic arm that takes the weight of these items off the body and makes the transport of laptop and accessories easy. Even taller people can walk upright with the TR15 Trolley because its arm can be adjusted to a length of up to 98 cm. This makes the TR15 Trolley the perfect device for employees who work for an organisation that uses telecommuting and flexible working.

A professional look
The TR15 Trolley’s beautiful design and professional look make it perfect for taking along to a business meeting or business lunch. To protect the devices it contains, the trolley is equipped with shock-absorbing foam elements, and it also has extra large wheels that give the trolley an even longer life. The trolley can hold a laptop of up to 17 inches and still has room for other documents in its highly efficient and practical storage compartments.
