MXV Monitor Arm Elevates Your Workspace with Functionality and Style

MXV DualYou don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality. Showcase your monitor or TV while maintaining ergonomic comfort with the new Ergotron MXV monitor arm. Sleek and versatile, MXV offers 13″ (33 cm) of height adjustment, a minimum 19.5″ (49.5 cm) of extension, integrated tilt and more — all on a convenient swivel base. The arm’s adjustability helps increase viewing comfort, while its upscale finish leaves a stylish impression.

The MXV saves valuable desk space with the cable management system and a narrow profile that’s 25% slimmer than the LX monitor arm. You can easily adjust your display with a light touch thanks to patented Constant Force™ technology, and the MXV passes Ergotron’s 10,000-cycle motion test, which ensures years of trouble-free height adjustment. The arm arrives full assembly for easy install. To learn more about the new MXV, available as a single or dual desk arm or single wall arm, click the links below:

Ergotron Aims to Change Bedside Patient-Provider Interaction

The patient over-bed table in hospitals hasn’t changed much in the last few decades. Despite the revolution in mobile computing, too many patients use outdated technology to interact with their care team. Ergotron wants to change that.

With our new StyleView® Patient eTable, healthcare tech is no longer a barrier for the patient to overcome; it’s an integral part of their care. From medications to food menus to patient entertainment, our eTable provides a platform for patients to easily use tablet computers without risking muscle strain from holding the tablet for a long time.

In this podcast, Ergotron Product Manager Troy Townes shares with me the details on this exciting new product, how it came about, and where we think the technology is going in the future.

Visit us at ISTE in Denver, booth #1515

Ergotron_ISTE_Products_Blog_Jun16

The ISTE Conference & Expo has been the premier forum for sharing groundbreaking ideas, unveiling new learning technologies and forming collaborations with the power to impact classrooms worldwide. Visit Ergotron/Anthro booth #1515 to get a glimpse at what Ergotron brings to the education market in 2016. Some highlights:

New! Ergotron LearnFit Sit-Stand Desk

Transform classrooms into active learning environments with on-demand sit-stand desks. With the simple squeeze of a hand lever, kids can change from sitting to standing. The first-generation LearnFit was named a 2016 Bronze Award Winner by the internationally renowned Edison Awards and endorsed by the Global Educator Institute (GEI).

Joyce R., a GEI reviewer and teacher in Florida says:
“I mainly use the LearnFit with a student who has disabilities and has an IEP that allows him to stand and be close to the classroom door. This desk is perfect for him. We can roll it closer to the door and he can stand up and work. Before, when he needed to use his laptop, he would have to sit because the table is too low for him. He always felt uncomfortable and was distracted easily. Using this product allowed him to be more comfortable and much less distracted!”

Top Seller! Ergotron YES Charging Carts and Cabinets, for Mini-Laptops and Tablets.

These flexible charging solutions can adjust to say YES to all your devices, now and in the future. Mix and match laptops, tablets, smartphones, and handhelds. Units offer compact and secure charging while saving valuable floor space in cramped classrooms and offices. Built with Anthro-DNA, they’re also TAA compliant.

Tracey, a reviewer and educator in North Carolina, gave the YES Cart five stars for security:
“This past winter one of the carts was really put to the test. We had a break in over the winter holidays but our Chromebooks were safe! The top of the cart had been pummeled by a hammer. The hammer marks were very clear but the cart remained locked and the thieves left the cart with the Chromebooks inside!”

Drop by our booth #1515, see the mock classroom, take all of our products for a spin, or enter one of our contests. We are giving away 3 products at 3 PM every day and have a grand prize that will excite! You’re sure to walk away a winner.

MX Mini Arm Helps to Integrate Tablets into Workflow

MX mini tablet

 

Ergotron’s new MX Mini Desk Mount Arm — for lightweight monitors and tablets like the Apple iPad® and Microsoft Surface™ — is an ergonomic mount that’s easy to love. The MX Mini offers height adjustment up to 19.5″ (50 cm) as well as a full tilt, pan and rotation for your display or tablet. It also includes hardware (a desk clamp or grommet mount) for installation on most desks, table or counter tops, including our popular WorkFit-T Sit-Stand Desktop Workstation. The MX Mini Wall Mount Arm frees up work space completely, by securely attaching to a wall.

When combined with the optional Lockable Tablet Mount, either model is perfect for info kiosks, restaurant/retail ordering, and public signage or entertainment displays.

With the increasing popularity of tablets, businesses have turned to us to provide a solution that not only enables their use in the workplace, but also one that provides ergonomic comfort and enhanced productivity. With the MX Mini you can address both objectives, with a product that adjusts to your unique requirements and wherever you need it.

WorkFit-T review: an amazing podcasting workstation

Bryn Huntpalmer's podcasting workstation

Bryn Huntpalmer’s podcasting workstation

It’s always interesting for us to hear how people are breaking up sedentary workstyles and improving their workflow. Bryn Huntpalmer, a popular podcaster, lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son. With the arrival of children, she discovered a passion for supporting women as they prepare to become mothers. In 2015, Bryn combined her talents in photography, writing, and connecting people to launch The Birth Hour. This audio podcast series serves as a place for women to share their childbirth stories.

Because it takes up to eight hours to edit a one-hour podcast, switching from sitting to standing and vice-versa is ideal for productivity. Bryn has suffered from back pain and carpal tunnel for a decade, so an ergonomic desk is absolutely crucial for health and wellbeing.

She recently blogged about how to set up the perfect workstation for podcasting workflow, and mentioned our WorkFit-TL Sit-Stand Desktop Workstation, shown above, with the optional WorkFit Dual Monitor Kit. Here’s a short excerpt:

“I used to sit at the dining room table while I recorded but now I use my sit stand desk from Ergotron that I’m obsessed with. I love this desk because it just sits on top of the desk I already own and it can be adjusted up or down really easily. If I decide to upgrade to a bigger desk one day (like when I have an actual office), I can just move this desk wherever it needs to go. I also got the screen mount so that I could have double screens which is really helpful when editing.”
