Think smart. Prototype often. Refine.
Our product development team works closely with our R&D department to create ergonomic products that succeed and lead in the marketplace. Rapid prototyping techniques allow us to quickly transform concepts into samples for usability studies and customer review.
A number of our innovations are patent-protected to allow us to deliver products with unique benefits. We use an extensive in-house test lab to perform cycle and load tests to BIFMA standards, as well as customer specifications. We have an extremely low return rate, which translates into high customer satisfaction scores.
Patents set us above the rest
Our patents elevate us above our competitors. Here are a few:
Our patented spring brake mechanism is used in the Duet Keyboard Arm and various other keyboard arms. It locks the height adjustment of the arm securely in place. A touch control mechanism allows users to easily adjust the height of the keyboard. The brake hides out of sight under the neck of the arm. The spring brake is zinc die-cast for durability and strength.
The Concerto Monitor Arm’s patented Quick Connect allows monitors to easily mount to the support arm. It also acts as a theft-deterrent, requiring a tool to disconnect the monitor from the arm.
Dial Tilt Adjustment
Among our most popular keyboard arm models, the Ovation and Legato feature a unique dial that changes the angle of the tray and shows you the precise angle as you turn the knob. This dial is easy to use and provides greater ADA compliance.
Our patented Lift-n-Lock™ wedge lock delivers easy one-step height adjustment with no knobs or levers. It automatically locks with the release of the keyboard tray. This provides greater ADA compliance, meets ANSI and ANSI/HFES standards and exceeds BIFMA performance criteria. It’s an elegantly engineered solution that allows for intuitive operation.
