Standing while working at a computer or desk has been shown to improve health outcomes including weight loss, improved cardiovascular health and a reduced risk for onset of diabetes. The folks at Omnimount have come up with another great solution in their line of sit-stand workstations. The latest in their product line is the Workfit riser arms for desktop and laptop computers. The Workfit-A is specifically designed for Apple iMac computers, securing the base in the desk stand.
The Workfit is designed to be mounted on any standard desk or workstation via the cable-run hole in the desktop. The mounting arm includes a keyboard tray for the desktop model and all of them can be raised or lowered from sitting to standing height. Now you can take your own desk, whoever made it and make it into a standing-sitting workplace, improving your health and fitness levels. Find out more about a sitting/standing workstation lifestyle at JustStand.org and see what you can do to improve your health through just a few simple working and lifestyle changes.
The Workfit-A and other models will be available later this spring and will retail starting at $649 which is a small price to pay for a way to improve your health every single day. As Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic says all the time, “getting healthy just takes small, simple steps that, over time, all add up to a healthier you!”
Al Werth joined us again for CES TPN Live coverage to talk about 3Feet – their universal mobile device stand. Smartphone or tablet, this sturdy stand can be used to hold up your Android, iPad, iPhone or other items (including a good old fashioned notebook). Three positions will give you ability to angle your device so you can see comfortably watch or play a game.
I even used it on the plane ride home to play Monopoly. It’s sturdier than the iPad cover folded over to the stand.
This stand is made in the USA and they also have branding options (like the Corvette logo model I use). There are 11 colors to choose from.
It’s always cool to see a person get inspired by a new technology. In this case, it’s about holding a smartphone or tablet on a long flight. That is what inspired 3 Feet – a stand for any device that folds flat and stows easy.
The stand also sets up in multiple positions. The cusions keep the device from moving or slamming into the 3Feet. The charger opening also allows for easy charging while standing.
Use 3 Feet to stand a device up on a plane or in a meeting. If you have a digital picture frame, 3Feet can be used to hold them on a shelf or table. It even makes good in holding up an old tablet (you know, the ones that actually hold paper…)
