With an adjustable arm holding a monitor or a patient can clearly see visuals regarding treatment presentation from their typical in operatory positions. The patient no longer has to be moved to see the screen because the screen can be moved to where the patient can see it.
Adjustable Mounting Arms
A monitor arm with enough reach will enable you to use the monitor to educate your patient about a treatment or to view x-rays from a bed or chair. This system makes it easier to engage your patient in the treatment process. The same system can then lift the monitor high enough to be used by staff personnel or colleagues to discuss treatment plans.
There are many monitor mounting arms and stands in the market designed for an array of applications and environments. You need to know exactly what you are looking for to match your needs with the correct solution. The following are some things to keep in mind when looking for a mounting system:
1. Adaptability— Remember that what you need now may change in the future. Find a system that is designed with this in mind. "How easy will it be to add a keyboard mount to this monitor arm in the future? Will I have to buy a completely new system or can I upgrade this one?"
2. Adjustability— The LCD monitor arm or mount should be able to be adjusted easily by the people who will use it every day? "Can my secretary easily adjust the height of this monitor stand?" In the case of mounting arms, think of the farthest point it will need to reach. "Will this arm reach where I need it to?"
3. Compatibility— There are compatibility standards set forth by VESA, the Video Electronics Standard Association, that determine how your LCD monitor can be mounted. Be sure to find a mounting system that has a mounting interface that is compatible with your LCD monitor. If your monitor hasn't been purchased, make sure that the LCD monitor you decide on is VESA compliant. Also keep in mind the weight of the equipment you intend to mount. Make sure you find a mounting system with a weight capacity to meet your requirements.
4. Quality— Find out how the systems you are looking at have been engineered and manufactured. "Is the mounting system designed to be durable? Is the arm meant to last longer than the equipment I will be mounting? Do I feel comfortable having this system extended over my patient? What kind of finish does it have? Will the finish fade or chip away?"
The right LCD monitor mounting systems are tools that can transform your practice; it will enrich the experience of your patients, and create a safer and more efficient workplace for employees.
