Anthro Supports PACS with New Adjustable Workstation

Anthro Corp., a manufacturer of modular furniture for technology, has rolled out the Elevate Adjusta, suited for medical imaging applications such as PACS, as it supports up to five monitors and features quiet and easy height adjustment.

The Elevate Adjusta is a sit stand workstation that has dual work surfaces, one which adjusts electronically and one which adjusts manually. The main surface will hold two PACS flat panel monitors and one system monitor or five standard monitors. The back monitor surface electrically raises and lowers with the push of a button, from as low as 27-in. up to 53-in. high, allowing the user to work comfortably, sitting or standing. The back monitor surface measures 60-in. wide, 22-in. deep and 1-1/2-in. thick.

The front keyboard surface manually adjusts up and down from 6.75-in. above to 5.5-in. below the back surface with a spring-assisted mechanism. The ergonomic front keyboard surface tilts 9 degrees positive (toward the user) and 15 degrees negative (away from the user). The front keyboard surface measures 60-in. wide, 13-in. deep and 1-in. thick.

The Elevate Adjusta supports up to five Flat Panel Monitor Arms, accessories which may be added to enhance the adjustability range. A wide variety of Flat Panel Monitor Arm solutions allow the user to bring monitors nearer for close-up viewing, adjust vertically, rotate up to 360 degrees and tilt up to 200 degrees.

The Elevate Adjusta is constructed with components that are UL listed. Heavy-duty, 4-in. locking rubber casters provide the Elevate Adjusta with excellent mobility. The Elevate Adjusta holds up to 150 lbs. on the back monitor surface, with up to 40 lbs. on the front keyboard surface and up to 100 lbs. on the frame.
Cables from equipment can be routed through grommets provided in the corner of the work surface, and then guided through the cable trough, which comes standard on each table. When used in PACS applications, transformers for the PACs monitors fit perfectly inside the cable trough so they are hidden and out of the way.

The Elevate Adjusta table surface is made of 45-lb. industrial-grade particle board with high-pressure, scratch-resistant laminate. Vinyl contour edge banding matches the laminate, available in Black or Light Grey. Metal components are composed of heavy 16 gauge steel with a baked-on powder-coat finish, available in Black or Silver Metallic.

The Elevate Adjusta comes with a Lifetime Warranty on the work surface and a one year warranty on the electrical system.

Optional accessories include solutions for further ergonomic benefits (Flat Panel Monitor Arms to suppor standard or PACS monitors), storage (CPU Holders and equipment shelves on the base tubes for UPS storage), and power & cable management (Power Bars and Surge Protectors).

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
