New WorkFit Ergonomic Workstations for Attorneys, Paralegals

“Take a Stand” for 21st-Century Law Office Computing

St. Paul, MN, February 18, 2010

The new WorkFit C-Mod Workstation, a sit-or-stand mobile computer workstation that enables attorneys, legal assistants and paralegals to move from seated to standing and back to a seated position whenever they wish, has been introduced by Ergotron. The benefit for law office employees —reduced back strain, increased productivity and the chance to burn more calories while enjoying healthier, more productive law office computing.

The WorkFit workstation helps legal staff achieve the sit or stand movement their bodies naturally crave, while relieving the strain and fatigue commonly associated with office computing. WorkFit delivers a small footprint, mobile office platform which can be rolled to “point-of-work” and adapted for temporary employees, visiting clients or attorneys, and short-stay telecommuters. /p>

Designed by Ergotron, a global manufacturer of digital display mounting and mobility products, the WorkFit workstation uses patented Constant Force™ lift technology to offer one-touch adjustment of the negative-tilt keyboard and LCD monitor. With 25 inches of height adjustability, WorkFit allows law firm employees to easily lift LCD screens or laptops to match their body’s position while they sit or stand, providing unsurpassed ergonomic comfort. Just as importantly, WorkFit’s independent adjustment and negative tilt keyboard ensures optimum elbow and wrist placement to avoid repetitive stress injury.

Ergotron’s WorkFit is available in four configurations—from the productivity-promoting dual-monitor or combo (laptop with LCD) to single-LCD cart (Light Duty and Heavy Duty) models.

Research by Dr. Marc Hamilton, associate professor of biomedical sciences at the University of Missouri, indicates the act of standing may have great health benefits for office workers. The sedentary act of sitting all day actually lowers metabolic rate, negatively impacting other bodily systems. (See http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/departments/ur/interact/?p=174.) Just standing during the day while using the WorkFit can actually double a worker’s metabolic rate.

Ergotron’s WorkFit workstations carry a MSRP of $899 in the US, and are available for sale to the global market through regional reseller and distribution channels. Each WorkFit (made of powder-coated painted steel and aluminum) includes cart, LCD pivot, integrated worksurface, keyboard tray with left/right mouse tray, wrist rest, mouse holder, cable storage box, CPU holder and four dual casters.

See the WorkFit in action in Ergotron’s movie CubeLife 2.0: The Uprising.
