Ergotron was honored with two Nightingale Awards at the 2019 Healthcare Design Expo & Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. The WorkFit® Elevatetm Sit-Stand Wall Desk received a silver award in the category of clinician support furniture, and the CareFittm Enclosure Wall-Mount Computer Workstation won a gold award in the category of clinical architectural products.
The Nightingale Awards recognize innovative products that notably contribute to healing in healthcare settings. Recipients are chosen by experienced healthcare design professionals and facility managers at the industry's premier trade show, the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference.
"We are honored to receive these awards for two of our newest ergonomic solutions. Both products were designed to allow caregivers to work comfortably and efficiently, sitting or standing, while saving valuable space in crowded healthcare environments," said Mark Brandenhoff, general manager of healthcare at Ergotron. "It's validating to know that the design experts at the conference were impressed."
The silver award-winning WorkFit Elevate transforms underutilized spaces into flexible work areas for nurses and physicians. This height-adjustable, wall-mounted desk features a flip-down worksurface to conserve valuable floor space or to create a collaborative workstation instantly.
The CareFit Enclosure, a gold award recipient, is an ergonomic wall-mounted workstation offering 20 inches of height adjustability to fit each user. When folded, it stays within 4 inches of the wall to fit tight spaces. A T-slot simplifies accessory attachment such as a proximity reader, and laminate options complement a variety of healthcare settings.
"Caregivers commonly work long, busy shifts and have hefty documentation responsibilities. As a result, they're prone to aches, pains and more serious musculoskeletal disorders," explained Brandenhoff. "We're proud to create ergonomic products like the WorkFit Elevate and CareFit Enclosure that help alleviate discomfort, allowing caregivers to focus more of their energy on healing their patients."
These awards are added to a long list of honors given to Ergotron products. The WorkFit Elevate recently won the 2019 ErgoExpo Attendees' Choice Award. To learn more about Ergotron's award-winning healthcare product line, visit ergotron.com.
