July 12, 2007 — Proximity Systems recently announced that the patented Ergotron Vertical Lift System will now be incorporated into select Proximity WorkStations with the potential to increase staff efficiency and individual user’s comfort.
The Proximity CRM WorkStation combines height adjustment and 180° swivel capability to provide users with the ultimate in flexible positioning.
The Ergotron Vertical Lift System uses a patented counter balance system to smoothly adjust the height of the work surface up or down, along a 7 to 8-inch range of motion without the use of knobs or levers.
Proximity Systems’ newly patented CRM WorkStation features an adjustable mechanical arm that allows the work surface to not only be adjusted for height, but to also extend up to four feet from the base and swivel 180º. This reportedly provides freedom, mobility and the option to position the computer screen and work surface near the patient, allowing the clinician to use the computer while working with the patient. Both patient and clinician can view information at the same time. The clinician’s ability to discreetly position the screen also affords the patient increased privacy. The base cabinet of the CRM accommodates the CPU and supplies, while the arm-mounted retractable work surface fits standard LCD monitors and folds down to provide a spacious work area. The new CRM model is designed to work well between beds in a semi-private room, in exam rooms or other areas where wall space is limited.
