An example of improving medical equipment ergonomics with intuitive positioning technology is Southco’s display monitor arms and mounts in the development of workstations with efficient platform design, including flexible arm technology to support a viewing monitor.
Increased Demand For Flexible Display Mounting In Medical Equipment & Workstations
Advances in medical technology have dramatically increased the demand for flexible display mounting in medical equipment applications.
Medical equipment such as endoscopy machines for example are often mounted to a mobile workstation to increase usability and ensure they are easier to move from room to room with an ergonomic and efficient platform design, including a flexible arm to support the viewing monitor.
Crucial Reliability, Increased Ergonomics & Improved User Experience
Southco’s Positioning Technology features integrated constant torque, providing the exact operating effort required to position displays. Engineers can define the desired user effort and know that it will be maintained over the life of the product.
Southco's AV series of display mounting solutions offer the following benefits in medical equipment design:
- It supports the display screen when it must remain stationary, yet allows it to move easily during repositioning.
- Withstands vibration and bumping that may result during operation and transportation whilst preventing drift.
- It can be moved in multiple directions and angles, allowing displays to be easily pulled toward or pushed away from the operator as needed.
- Reliable, repeatable cycle life to eliminate the need for service or adjustment during operation.
- It provides a wide range of monitor movement and makes it virtually weightless in terms of its motion.
- Market-leading counterbalance mechanism counteracts the gravitational pull against the monitor, allowing fingertip movement of even the heaviest monitors.
- Advanced positioning control technology enables users to move and position the monitor without the need for clamps to lock it into position, saving time and effort and making the arms surface easier to clean.
- Zero drift functionality ensures monitors are securely placed after one movement.
