Monitor/Keyboard Arm Solutions for Health-Care Facilities
Technological advancements in computer hardware have allowed health-care providers quick and easy access to vital information relating to their patients. The challenge for these providers, however, has been to find the most time- and space-efficient way to store and retrieve the computer hardware itself, including its necessary accessories, like monitor, keyboard and mousing device. Today, with innovative products like those from IOP (and featured in this month's newsletter), such solutions are within easy grasp - quite literally in fact.
For example, it may be important when explaining to a patient his or her particular condition that the patient be informed of any relevant information visually. In other words, the health-care provider may want to show the patient a diagram or chart data on a monitor screen. It would be very inconvenient to have to drag a monitor from room to room, finding an available plug-in outlet, etc. With a product like the IOP 9400 Point-of-Care Arm, the patient or health-care provider can adjust a monitor into almost any position for easy viewing - with a range up to 6 feet from the mounting point!
It may also be desirable for health-care professionals to have their own dedicated workstation with easy access to a computer and affiliated hardware, but in a convenient and storable location. The IOP 8326 Wall-mounted Workstation offers this combination of features, with a monitor and keyboard tray which can be quickly stored compactly against the wall (when not in use) or repositioned in a stationary configuration for fast access. Since all the components are adjustable and easily movable using gas (monitor) and hydro (keyboard) cylinders, there is no fussing with levers or complicated knobs and buttons. There are even mounting options to store a CPU (not shown in picture), giving a truly all-in-one solution within any health-care environment for essential daily data entry, access, and retrieval.
These are just a few of the many options now available for health-care professionals to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of their health-care delivery, where time and space are often at a premium and critical-care decisions have to be made at a moment's notice. Products such as the IOP 9400 and IOP 8326 are provider- and patient-friendly solutions that are sure to lessen the stresses that are frequently worsened by slow, inefficient and poorly designed workplaces.
Ergonomic Product Usage Tip of the Month
Choosing the Right Monitor/Keyboard Arm for Health-Care Environments
Here are some helpful hints to consider when deciding which kind of monitor/keyboard arm is required for your special circumstances, using the products discussed in this month's newsletter:
1. Point-of-Care Arm (Model 9400) by IOP: This arm maximizes the flexibility of space-challenged health-care environments. The huge arm extends almost six feet, enabling it to be mounted behind a bed while still extending far enough for patient or caregiver use. The dual arms fold upwards, minimizing the consumption of valuable horizontal space. Special features include field-accessible internal cable management, heavy-duty construction, and remarkably smooth motion (each of the dual arms has its own gas-cylinder).
When to choose: In cases where you need extended reach for quick and relatively effortless monitor positioning. This is IOP's longest reaching monitor arm.
When to use: The 9400 Point-of-Care Arm is an ideal solution for patient rooms, clinics, operatories and dental offices.
2. Vertical Wall Track (Model 8326) from IOP: This configurable solution can be customized to meet your needs - incorporating flexible LCD arms, keyboard arms, even a CPU holder. Cables are routed through track, and hidden behind a cable channel.
When to choose: In cases where you need to position the monitor and keyboard tray independently (as well as angles); tight spaces that have multiple uses (for extra easy storage and retrieval).
When to use: the 8326 Vertical Wall Mount is an ideal solution for exam rooms, nurse stations, or offices.
3. EVO LCD 'Modern' Arm (5545 only) by IOP: The relatively small footprint of the EVO makes it a minimally obtrusive monitor arm wherever it is mounted. This award-winning arm combines incredible flexibility with elegant design, whose stylish arm will improve the aesthetics of your work area. The quick-install/quick-release mechanism instantly and securely snaps monitors into position.
When to choose: In cases where you need a light-weight, easily assembled/disassembled monitor arm; stylishness is important.
When to use: the 5545 EVO LCD Arm is an ideal solution for almost any desktop environment, especially office and reception areas.

Extra-Deep ABS Plastic Low Profile Tray from Foxbay is Now Available!
The new Extra-Deep ABS Low Profile Tray custom made for ErgoCanada from Foxbay is 13.0" deep instead of 11.0". This extra-deep tray can now accommodate combinations of devices that would otherwise slightly protrude on the standard tray, for example, when using a central pointing device such as the RollerMouse Free or Mousetrapper Advance with the Kinesis Freestyle Solo keyboard.
It is available in a wide range of widths (30", 27", 24") and all the trays are 13.0" deep with cutouts for cables in a 1" Keyboard Guard at the back of the tray. Like the Standard ABS Plastic Low Profile Tray, the 30" tray accommodates keyboards, pointing device and a separate numeric keypad, the 24" and 27" inch tray is available when dictated by less available space in the workstation.
