Ergonomic Products That Won't Break The Bank

Designed to suit a range of settings, the M2 allows the user to bring their work to them, versus having to adjust to a static monitor stand.  M2’s articulating arm offers effortless height and depth adjustment for the majority of flat-panel screens available today, accommodating monitors up to 9kg (20 lbs.).

Instead of using a gas cylinder to counterbalance the weight of the monitor, the M2 monitor arm uses extension spring technology. Without clunky mechanisms to complicate the design, the M2 offers uncompromising lightweight, long-term durability and an ultra-thin design that complements flat-panel monitors and attachments for a truly flexible workstation. 

About M2

The M2 embodies what a monitor arm should be, allowing the user to work in a healthy posture by setting the monitor at an optimal distance and height. Collaboration is made easier through effortless screen sharing, and desk space is increased. The M2’s seamless cable management and minimal design enhances the look of any workstation.

Return on Investment for Ergonomic Interventions


Within two years of the start of my career as an ergonomic consultant, I had lost count of the number of times I had been asked by prospective clients to provide return on investment data. Most companies seemed to have a grasp on the importance of ergonomics, yet they were struggling to cost justify their programs. Human resource professionals and risk managers often requested to see evidence of lowered injury rates and reduced workers’ compensation costs whereas facilities managers, architects and designers were interested in productivity data. Today, the list of metrics has been expanded to include turnover, absenteeism, morale and employee satisfaction.

The Float Desk

 

Float is a revolutionary standing office desk that brings effortless operation to traditional sit-stand products. Ease of use is at the heart of Float, as it seamlessly adjusts between sitting and standing postures without interrupting workflow. With a minimal aesthetic, Float complements traditional offices and home workspaces.

Using a patented counterbalance mechanism that replaces older technology, Float encourages an active workspace by allowing the user to move effortlessly from sit to stand positions. Float is also available in an electric option.

About Float

The key to remaining healthy while at work is to alternate between standing and sitting positions. Float makes standing almost effortless and instant. By eliminating awkward cranks and noisy, slow motors, Float removes obstacles that typically discourage the use of height-adjustable desks. Operating Float is as easy as standing up.
