New LX Wall Mount System, Keyboard Arm Point-of-Care Computing Solutions for Healthcare Professionals Introduced by Ergotron at HIMSS10 Conference

Also introducing the future generation of StyleView® healthcare cart concepts

St. Paul, MN, March 1, 2010

A new LX Wall Mount System and LX Keyboard Arm along with a future generation of StyleView® healthcare cart concepts have been introduced at the HIMSS 2010 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia (booth 2158) by Ergotron, the global leader of healthcare point-of-care mounting and mobility solutions.

Ergotron’s structural redesign of its LX family of arms improves point-of-care computing for hospitals and medical clinics:

  • The LX Wall Mount System is a complete solution for healthcare facilities that accommodates an LCD, keyboard and CPU while providing vertical and side-to-side motion. The system offers computer users 13" (33 cm) height adjustment for both the LCD and keyboard, accommodating displays up to 24" and up to 20 lbs (9.1 kg) in size. The LX offers premium adjustability for use within even the most space-constrained patient rooms; keyboard and LCD fold tight against the wall when not in use. The LX Wall Mount System is available for MSRP of $799 in the US.
  • The LX Keyboard Wall Mount Arm mounts to any hospital or clinic wall, providing vertical and side-to-side motion for effective patient interaction while computing. Nurses, physicians and other healthcare personnel of all sizes can effortlessly position a keyboard at the most comfortable typing position. The LX Keyboard Wall Mount Arm is available at MSRP of $299 in the US.

Both redesigned LX units offer enhanced features, including durable polished aluminum construction and improved cable management for the hospital environment.

Ergotron, with over 25 years experience in improving the human interface with digital displays, is partnering with the following companies (among others) to highlight its StyleView point-of-care portfolio at the HIMSS show: Barco (booth 2933), Cardinal Health (booth 5533), CDW (booth 1515), Cybernet (booth 1312), Cycom (booth 1407), DataSource Mobile (booth 3320), HealthConnection (booth 8061), HP (booth 7761), Insight (booth 2747), Man & Machine (booth 2924), Panasonic (booth 2633), Synnex (booth 8469), Unotron (booth 8051), Wyse Technology (booth 7603) and Zones Inc. (booth 1303).

“The new point-of-care products we’re showing this year are a direct result of feedback we’ve received from the largest global healthcare providers,” says Steve Reinecke, senior global director of healthcare and education industries at Ergotron. “Healthcare facilities are asking for more rugged products, better service and lighter mobile solutions at point-of-care—which is precisely what these LX and StyleView products from Ergotron deliver.”
