Great concept, and nice execution. I like the idea of felt protecting the cover. I ordered this a while back (similar idea) and it's perfect for Omnibus reading.
I found one on amazon for $23.99
Why not on your sofa? Just get a laptop stand.
I work on my sofa most days as a software engineer. Comfy as hell, beats the fuck out of going into the office.
Headphones and something like this:
I had a bulging cervical disc (c7-t1) in December 2019. The pain was amazing. I had good experiences at Sequoia & Stanford ER (or ED as hospitals seem to call them now) over 3 days. Got morphine with an oxycodone prescription the first time, and dilaudid the 2nd & 3rd. Had to spend the night in Stanford hospital on the 3rd night. First time I'd ever slept in a hospital. Went away with prescriptions for gabapentin, flexeril & oxycodone, and some lidocaine patches. Also was told to take tylenol. That managed the pain while I waited 10 days for surgery at Stanford.
Having done a lot of research I lobbied my neurosurgeon for a disc replacement rather than a fusion to preserve some motion and put less pressure on adjacent discs. She said she'd try, but at that level it can be hard for the fluoroscope to see through to the spine because your shoulders can get in the way and mine definitely did.
She respected my wishes however. After surgery she told me while laughing a bit that she had to have two guys pull my arms down toward my feet as hard as they could to clear the way for the fluoroscope. It worked and I'm really glad I pushed for it.
Look, I'm never going to be 100% again and still have smaller bulges on 2 other discs, but I was in terrible pain and I'm okay over 2 years later. I've had to scale back on the hard exercise I used to do, but I still work out and more importantly I've changed how I use my laptop and read. I'm pretty convinced I caused the problem with awful head-forward posture while working on my laptop. I see the way we all do this and look down at our phones. It makes me fear for everyone's cervical discs. I do these things reclined or even lying down a lot now to take the pressure off my spine. And a huge help has been just using an adjustable lap desk. I have this one. Cheap and effective.
As for the drugs, like i said oxycodone didn't help me that much and I'm not prone to opiod addiction apparently. Gabapentin, however, is awesome for me. It's for nerve pain so that makes sense since the bulge was pressing on the nerve root. I still have mild flare-ups if I go too hard on weightlifting or running, but they're nothing like those 3 terrible days in 2019. I asked my surgeon's office for another Gabapentin prescription for those episodes and got it. They offered me all the drugs, but that was the one I wanted.
I don't know where your wife's herniated discs are so all this cervical talk may not mean much, but there's my experience.
I got this one from Amazon last year and TBH, I’m not too terribly in love with it. I’m thinking about something like this. If anyone has used a setup like the second one, I’d love to hear your input on it. :)
I've been using this one in bed. Its simple, no frills, lifts up so the screen isn't hurting your neck in bed and I am able to play any steam games with my Switch controller flawlessly. Lets plenty of airflow in as well.
