A Well Designed Monitor Arm Allows Optimal Viewing Freeing Valuable Desktop Space

Monitor arm design and sophistication has improved in leaps and bounds over the past few years, and one of the key reasons for this is the growth and use of flat-panel screens. Their lightweight construction and industry standard, four-point VESA arm attachment system has made it far easier to cater to different makes of monitor.

The big plus-points of having a monitor arm are the space it saves on your desk and the fact that you can just push it out of the way when you want to do other tasks like writing, reading, or studying a plan or drawing. Most monitor arms are designed to be desk-mounted, although wall-mounted ones come in very handy if you happen to have wall space available.

Ergotron Arm

As well as single-monitor arms, there are also arms designed to carry two, three or even four monitors on one arm. Ergotron's LX Arm LCD Mount is a great arm capable of safely supporting up to 24-inch monitors, provided the monitor weighs no more than 20lbs. It's very well engineered and clamps to the rear of the desk and has a huge range of adjustment.

An arm like this allows the user to fine-tune their monitor to the perfect position for their body posture and eye comfort with a huge 13-inch height range.
