For patient room charting, Integris chose Ergotron 45-260-026 for installation in each patient room and many specialty areas from PACU to NICU. This combo arm mounted to a wall track and equipped with the optional extender folds to just 8” off the wall when not in use. While it reaches out more than 4 ft. from the wall, the real benefit of the extender is that it allows the user to bend the arm into many positions for charting in very cramped spaces. Most importantly, it allows the user to maintain line-of-sight with the patient.
Some think it looks like a lot of hardware, until they see how closely it folds to the wall and how amazingly it is used in the smallest of rooms.
