106 Ergotron




Description

This article is from the Ergonomics and Typing Injury FAQ, by Dan Wallach dwallach@cs.princeton.edu with numerous contributions by others.

106 Ergotron

This is a line of "ergonomic" workstations and "dense pack" racks for
network installations. Basically, you buy a frame which can be fitted with
legs, legs with casters, or attached to the wall. The top of this frame is
about 70-78 inches above the floor; near the top is an adjustable shelf.
To the bottom of the shelf is attached a "truck" which holds the monitor,
allowing for the monitor to slide from side to side, tilt, or swivel. A
"swing-arm" version of the monitor truck is available as well; this allows
the monitor to be repositioned more freely. The frame can be fitted with a
work surface (to which a keyboard holder can be attached) or with a
digitizer support frame. Keyboard trays are also available to fit directly
to the monitor suspension truck. No undertable storage is provided,
although there is a CPU caddy which attaches to the side of the unit. Side
tables, pencil boxes, and print holders are also available.

Frame prices run from $160 (for a wall mount unit) to $300 for a
freestanding unit. Shelves run $250; monitor suspension from $200 to $425,
and legs from $78 to $800. Keyboard trays can run as high as $300, and CPU
holders from $100 to $250.
