Such a posture is bad for the back. Refrex is a glass that refracts the words from the book at an angle that allows reading more comfortably.
This design use the light refraction in the reading glass to change view of the direction of the objects under the Refrex on the desk,as the same time magnifies them.So that people can reading without bending the spine, get a more comfortable and healthier reading.
