St. Paul, Minn. (Sept. 28, 2011)
Ergotron has expanded its industry-leading portfolio of carts and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare market, with the addition of the new StyleView® Sit-Stand Enclosure. The new Sit-Stand Enclosure brings ergonomic sit-stand computing comfort to caregivers accessing or inputting data within traditional hospital wall mount workstation settings.
Presenting caregivers with a new level of workplace flexibility and low-profile aesthetics, the StyleView Enclosure helps enhance patient and caregiver’s overall experience by enabling caregivers to easily sit or stand while accessing critical patient data—introducing greater efficiency and accuracy into treatment facilitation.
“Hospitals are realizing the importance of in-room computing but recognize the issues associated with finding solutions that meet the demands of the caregiver like space and NFPA requirements,” said Steve Reinecke, senior global director of healthcare at Ergotron. “The full sit-stand technology Ergotron standardized in StyleView carts is now available in a slim wall mount configuration. Not only does the solution address the space issue, it also brings comfort and ergonomics to the caregiver. By enhancing caregiver comfort, the result is greater efficiency and accuracy in data input, and that is good for everybody involved.”
Designed for space-constrained patient rooms, the new StyleView Sit-Stand Enclosure has a very low profile of only 3.8" (9.7 cm) deep with a small footprint on wall of 38.2" (97 cm) high by 26.6" (67.5 cm) wide. The unit provides 20" (51 cm) of smooth and effortless height-adjustment.
Addressing the unique requirements of the healthcare environment, the worksurface and wrist rest have been treated with Agion® Antimicrobial for product protection. The keyboard tray folds back cleanly when not in use and the unit is compliant with NFPA 101 Life Safety Code interior wall finish requirements.
For added safety and security, there is a keyless locking mechanism that protects patient data for compliance with privacy requirements; a keyed lock is also included. Additionally, the new enclosure offers separate locking storage for the CPU or thin client, front vented for enhanced heat dissipation to ensure long-life performance of hardware, and cable management to conceal and organize wires and cords.
Available in white or black finish, the unit can be purchased through global reseller and distribution partners at an MSRP of US$999.
