December 12, 2012 — Anthro Corporation, Technology Furniture, the Portland, Ore., manufacturer of radiology sit/stand desks, introduced the newest member of its award-winning Steve's Station family. The ergonomic design of Steve's Curve wraps displays around the user for comfortable viewing and positions equipment within easy reach. The addition of this curved model gives imaging professionals a total of four Steve's Station desk options with a variety of shapes and features. Steve's Curve will be available in 2013 and was shown for the first time at RSNA, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
More than just an electric radiology sit/stand desk, the two work surfaces of Steve's Curve move up and down separately to custom fit the work style of any user. The independent movement of each work surface greatly increases the variety of positions and gives radiologists precise control of their work surface height and monitor placement.
Steve's Curve includes the same details as other members of the Steve's Station family. Comfort controls like an air circulation fan to move air gently around the displays and keep the user refreshed. Twin LED task lights on gooseneck arms that provide just the right amount of light wherever needed without washing onto the displays. Convenient USB ports built into the work surface. Programmable height presets in order for the user to change positions quickly throughout the day.
Additional ergonomic features include tilt adjustability of the front keyboard surface to ease pressure on arms, shoulders, neck and back. The back monitor work surface of Steve's Curve includes Monitor Easy Track, a monitor management system that slides the entire monitor array forward and back in unison 10 inches to reach the user's optimal focal depth.
"Large monitor configurations have the tendency to prohibit users from having all monitors within the same focal distance," said Michael Mullen, Design Development manager for Anthro Corporation. "This new curve shape encourages an ergonomic viewing experience and will reside comfortably in a corner, along a wall or in a pod arrangement."
The electric legs of Steve's Curve move the desk quickly and quietly from 23 inches to 49 inches high to support a variety of users. The keyboard surface adjusts from 6" below and 7 inches above the monitor surface. With a total keyboard height range of 17 inches – 56 inches high, Steve's Curve accommodates a wide variety of height preferences.
Steve's Station's cable management system protects data and power cords and cables through the table's entire range of motion so that connections aren't strained when the table height or monitor depth are adjusted. Monitors are easy to reposition and replace with a single included tool.
Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects on the table; two-year warranty on legs and electrical system. Lamps, cords, and plugs are not warranted.
