The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), the largest professional association in the world representing doctors of chiropractic, is proud to announce its exclusive endorsement of the Kensington® Contour Laptop Carrying Case, the first Kensington carrying case specifically designed with ergonomic principles to make life more comfortable for professionals on the go.
Developed by Kensington Technology Group, the leading maker of innovative, reliable accessories that make using computers more comfortable and productive, the Contour Laptop Carrying Case reduces the stress and fatigue associated with carrying a typical computer case by up to Thirty-Five percent (35%)*.
"Professional people and students alike wreak havoc on their backs, necks and shoulders by lugging around awkward laptop computers and cases," said ACA President Donald J. Krippendorf. "The Kensington Contour Laptop Carrying Case is a direct answer to that problem. If you own a laptop computer, you need a Contour Carrying Case."
The ACA chose to endorse the Contour Laptop Carrying Case because of its array of unique ergonomic features, including a sculpted, padded hip panel that moves the weight of the case toward the center of your body, helping to keep your back and neck straight. Also, a shock-absorbing shoulder strap made of a special material helps keep the case snugly in place, and contoured, rigid handles distribute weight evenly across your hand. All of these features are designed to help lessen stress and fatigue on your body. An evaluation committee comprised of a selected group of ACA's Board of Directors put the Contour Laptop Carrying Case to the test and found it significantly reduced strain associated with carrying a laptop computer and other work accessories.
"This endorsement from the American Chiropractic Association means so much to us because it further validates all the research, development and hard work that went into creating the Contour Laptop Carrying Case," said Janet Dulsky, Director of Product Management at Kensington. "Of course, all Kensington computer accessories are made with a high standard of quality, but when you can develop products that are appreciated by an organization like the ACA in this way, it makes our achievement that much better."
In addition to its ergonomic features, the Contour Laptop Carrying Case provides unprecedented protection and organization with a smart layout of front pockets, top-loading file compartments, and a separate pocket for airplane tickets or your passport. A Kensington® SnugFit™ laptop protection compartment uses elastic stretch materials and a thick layer of padding to create a snug, form-fitting space that "envelopes" your laptop, helping to keep it safe and secure during transport. The Contour Laptop Carrying Case is also extremely durable, with an exterior fabric made of 1680 Denier Ballistic Nylon.
