using the computer post-op ... best sitting position



  • The swiss balls are great for building your core stabilty muscles but I really wouldn't recommend then for a while post op. If not used correctly they can put undue pressure where you dont want it.
    If you decided to get one then I reccommend you see a PT or exercise physiologist to give you exercises to do with on and and to choose the right size ball for you.
    They really are not supposed to be used for sitting long term.

    Many Laptop and Thinkpad batteries get very hot. Some dangerously hot and many different models have been recalled.
    You do need airflow under the laptop. The best unit is a plastic platform with 2 fans that plug into the USB port and help cool down the computer. Costs only about $25
