OmniMount Now Shipping TV and Computer Mounts for the WellTech Consumer

New adjustable ActionMounts provide sit-stand options to health-minded consumers

Phoenix, AZ, May 30, 2012

Inspired by the growing research indicating the negative effects of prolonged sitting, OmniMount, a global brand of mounts and furniture for the connected home, is now shipping a series of products designed to promote healthy and comfortable usage of computers and TVs. The collection utilizes patented Constant Force (CF) technology and consists of five products: two computer mounts (WORK15, WORK20) and three TV mounts (PLAY20, PLAY20X, PLAY40). Each has sit-stand adjustability that gives consumers a healthy means of interacting with their electronics.

“Electronics like TVs and computers have the natural tendency to encourage sedentary behavior. It’s becoming more apparent how big of an impact that’s having on our health, and it’s time for our industry to rethink a few things,” explains John Deutsch, senior vice president of NA sales. “We’re making it our social responsibility to offer products that break the mold and have the ability to create healthier, more active lifestyles. Our message? Keep doing what you love and we’ll help you do it healthier.”

The WORK products are designed to provide a computer mount solution that maximizes space and adjusts to the ergonomic needs of different users. Research has indicated that the simple act of standing has significant health benefits, such as increased metabolic rate and positive effects on other bodily systems. CF technology allows for simple, light-touch adjustments of the keyboard, mouse and monitor, so users can easily move between sitting and standing positions. Using a WORK mount easily becomes part of a daily, healthier routine. The WORK15 supports a single monitor up to 15 pounds and WORK20 supports two side-by-side monitors up to 20 pounds. Installation is easy via desk clamp or grommet mounting and cable clips control wires for a clean finish.

The PLAY products are designed to give TV users a new level of interaction and encourage activities like exercising and gaming. With up to 20” of vertical adjustment, users can instantly reposition their TV for the perfect viewing during standing or seated activities. The PLAY20 and PLAY20X fit TVs from 19-32” up to 20 pounds and offer vertical travel up to 13”, and the PLAY40 fits TVs from 30-55” up to 40 pounds with 20” vertical travel.

All five SKUs are available and shipping, offered at MSRP’s of:
WORK15 –US $379.95
WORK20 –US $399.95
PLAY20 –US $129.95
PLAY20X –US $149.95
PLAY40 –US $299.95
