Ergotron is the leading manufacturer of patient room computing furniture solutions, including both wall-mounted articulating monitor arms, articulating keyboard arms, CPU holders, COW’s and WOW’s (carts). In addition to patient room wall-mounted IT-related appliances, Page Concepts, Inc. also provides solutions for linear accelerator control rooms, nurses’ stations, and hospital administration.
Hospitals and clinics value space and real-time information. As hospitals strive for the very best in patient care, they must place interactive computing capability within the patient rooms. Logistics require patient rooms to be compact, keeping distances from nurses’ stations to a given patient room to a minimum.
Patients, doctors and nurses all would like to view information on a computer monitor. Ergotron products provide space-efficient solutions, both wall-mounted, and mobile. Articulating arms allow monitors to be moved about for viewing by patient as well as care-givers. Keyboards flip up to be flat against wall. For lockable security, Ergotron enclosures extend from wall only 7”, but, when open, allow keyboard to fold down and monitor to adjust.
Ergotron's newest carts offer a universal interface which charges up to 20 devices (works with laptops, netbooks and tablets)—the PowerShuttle (PS) Laptop Management Cart, which manages device software through Ethernet, and the PS Laptop Charging Cart.
Both incorporate Ergotron's patented PowerShuttle™ Technology which optimizes total charge time while safely preventing electrical circuit overload. Efficiently grouping the number of devices that are charged at one time helps ensure the devices are ready when needed.
