Tracing our steps and harnessing movement within the office

Ergotron’s TRACE monitor mounts aim to move with us, in order to maximise wellbeing and output.

Tracing our steps and harnessing movement within the office

Our offices should be catered towards our needs. In order for us to be at our best, it’s important we have the tools that allow us to perform to a high standard. As technology and ergonomics evolve, it’s important that the technology on offer accounts for the needs of the user, from both a working and wellbeing perspective.

Ergotron’s TRACE range embodies the brand’s desire to help people thrive. Constantly refining the product, the new TRACE range offers its users the ability to smoothly adjust their screens to the desired position. Sleek and modern, the Single Monitor and Dual Monitor mounts adjust seamlessly for a number of tasks and postures.

Many of Ergotron’s innovative technologies have been utilised within the new TRACE range that enhance the designs. The company’s Constant Force technology brings ease to vertical adjustment for a variety of monitor sizes and their associated weights. A new guide system has also been developed by the company, which furthers the smoothness of each adjustment.

The TRACE catalogue makes note of a ‘home’ position, that intuitively places the monitors to allow users to open-up the desk for other tasks. With its integrated cable management and system modularity, a user can easily transition from a small single or dual monitor, to large format single or dual monitors.

TRACE, while not too dissimilar from a monitor arm, is more beneficial in a number of ways. It serves as a more efficient and effective way to adjust a monitor, namely within collaborative environments. Possessing the flexibility to adjust for those who alternate between sitting and standing, the mount serves as a priority for new and refurbished office spaces. TRACE also is made to ensure it doesn’t interfere with any panel systems or when installing up against the wall.

Since its inception in 1982, Ergotron has looked to move its client’s physically, emotionally and intellectually. Earning patents on some of the first ergonomic tilt stands, mounting arms and desk stands, the company has remained at the forefront of ensuring the human office experience is a comfortable one. Founder Harry Sweere’s legacy of innovation lights the way for the current team, who seek to overcome everyday adversities faced by those who work within the space of an office.

Ergotron utilises human-centred design principles and the technology of movement to assist workers throughout their working lives. The TRACE range is most certainly an epitomisation of the company’s will to assist. To view the range in full, make your way over to
