The Omega Denali ThermoDesk Table Top from iMovR introduces a new concept in keyboard tray design. Inset directly into the surface of the table top, the "SteadyType" keyboard tray helps users at standing and walking workstations reduce wrist extension and "monitor shake." It can also help users at treadmill desks counter the backwards-pulling effect of the treadmill.
Users moving to standing workstations and treadmill desks can sometimes find it difficult to position the keyboard at a steep enough negative incline. The result is the upward bend at the wrist, known as wrist extension, that can increase the risk of injury to the hands, wrists and forearms. The "SteadyType" design allows users to adjust the angle of the tray from 0° to -85°.
The "SteadyType" keyboard tray is an even greater step forward in keyboard positioning for treadmill users. To counter the tendency to drift backwards on the treadmill as they type, users often anchor the heels of their hands to the desk, exerting significant downward force from the upper body in an effort to keep their hands in position over the keyboard. With a greater degree of negative tilt on the keyboard, users can avoid this backwards drift by bracing themselves passively against the keyboard. With the keyboard tray inclined at a steeper negative incline the backwards pull of the treadmill now works in the user's favour to hold the user's hands in position against the keyboard.
This improved hand and wrist positioning enables users to maintain a better walking posture while letting the muscles of the hands, forearms and upper body relax. This more natural posture will result in improved typing performance over standard flat-topped walking workstations. By integrating the "SteadyType" keyboard tray into the body of the table top and moving it closer to the centre of the desk's crossbar, iMovr has succeeded in significantly reducing the phenomenon known to users of height adjustable workstations as "monitor shake."
On the Omega Denali table top, the mouse sits flat on the primary desk surface but remains easily accessible within the Comfort Zone due to the unique positioning of the keyboard 'in' the desktop. The "SteadyType" keyboard tray has two height settings that enable the user to select the most beneficial positions for the keyboard and mouse relative to each other.
The Omege Denali ThermoDesk Table Tops feature softly rounded edges and corners. Using 3D Lamination Technology, the 1 1/8" thick high-density MDF tops are vacuum-wrapped at high heat. This creates a complete and seamless film across the top and edges of the table top, and even includes the grommet hole interiors. The worksurface is completely non-porous, ensuring protection from humidity and liquids. Multiple layers of finish provide resistance to abrasion and damage from many common cleaning and disinfectant products. A wide palette of colours, including Hayward Cherry, Clove Mahogany, Light Maple and Urban Walnut ensure the right tone in any office environment from entry level to senior executive.
The Omega Denali tops are pre-drilled to fit the iMovR RELEVATE manual adjust frame and fitted with threaded metal inserts that ensure quick and measure-free installation with a single Phillips screwdriver. The metal inserts ensure a well-secured top as well as the ability to remove and replace tops without wear on the mounting points.
Note:The Omega Denali tops may be installed on other sit-stand desk frames but the threaded inserts might not be usable in those applications. It will also be necessary to ensure that these frames do not interfere with the incline and height adjustment of the integrated SteadyType keyboard tray.
