Ergotron, the global leader in mounting and mobility solutions, announced the launch of four WorkFit-S accessories designed to expand the functionality and comfort of its wellness enhancing WorkFit-S Sit-Stand Workstations. The accessories—which include the Tablet/Document Holder, Worksurface, Large Keyboard Tray, and Hinged Bow for displays—accommodate individual user preference in terms of workspace requirements, and integrate easily with existing installations or new deployments.
Ergotron’s WorkFit-S desk mount solution helps counteract the increasingly sedentary workstyle of today’s office workers by promoting health, movement, comfort and productivity. With the addition of these new accessories, user’s now have added flexibility in creating an even more comfortable computing experience.
Tablet/Document Holder The Tablet/Document Holder offers dual functionality for all four WorkFit-S configurations, allowing users to mount iPads, tablets or documents interchangeably throughout the day. The holder installs in one of three different positions to ensure a perfect fit beneath laptop or displays and includes a handle for easy up or down repositioning of the entire unit. The Tablet/Document Holder is available now for purchase at an MSRP of US$29.
Worksurface This large, seamless surface attaches to all four WorkFit-S configurations and provides ample space for documents or other task-related needs. It includes a handle for easy height positioning of the entire unit, and helps organized and conceal keyboard and mouse cables by channeling them under the worksurface. The Worksurface is available for an MSRP of US$89.
Large Keyboard Tray The Large Keyboard Tray is an option for anyone using larger ergonomic keyboards. This one piece tray installs centered or offset to left or right to accommodate workspace requirements, like corner desk positioning, and folds up out of the way when not in use. The unit has an MSRP of US$49. Note: All WorkFit-S units currently ship with a smaller keyboard tray configuration.
Hinged Bow The Hinged Bow for WorkFit-S Dual Display and LCD and Laptop configurations installs on either right or left side of the unit, and gives users the ability to pivot one display back so that others can view the screen. It also enables the mounting of larger 24" displays. The unit has an MRSP of US$45.
All units are available for sale through global reseller and distribution channels.
“We’ve received feedback from users all over the world about what would help make their WorkFit experience healthier and more productive,” said Kevin Paulson, product manager at Ergotron. “We designed these accessories based on that feedback to help give users the maximum accessibility to the data and task-related items they need. I’m enormously proud of the WorkFit line of products as they are literally changing the way the world works.”
