COLEBROOK Bosson Saunders’ latest monitor arm, Flo, has picked up another significant commendation.
Flo is the most recent product to receive the prestigious FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award, in recognition of its exceptional ergonomic design.
Says a spokesperson: “The FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award identifies genuine ergonomic excellence in both domestic and workplace furniture products by clearly distinguishing those that are outstanding from other products in the marketplace. In order to receive the award, safety, user-friendliness and the comfort and wellbeing of the user are considered, as well as whether the product is fit for purpose both structurally and ergonomically.”
Flo is a self-powered dynamic monitor arm that allows a flat screen to be used in either an upright viewing position, at desktop level as a touch screen, or anywhere in between.
It addresses three major needs of end-users and specifiers: free flowing action with smooth adjustability; a unique visual indicator weight gauge (that helps to dramatically reduce installation time and ensure perfect balance); compatibility with touch-screen technology and in addition, as one would expect from a Colebrook Bosson Saunders’ product, purity of design.
According to FIRA: “The Flo Monitor arm has received the Ergonomic Excellence award due to its unique design which exceeds FIRA’s stringent testing criteria.”
Levent Caglar, FIRA’s ergonomics expert, said: “The excellent manoeuvrability and stability make Flo a truly ergonomic monitor arm. Ingenious design enables it to double up as an effective touch-screen support. Through the use of a spring it achieves a minimalist simple form which is pleasing to the eye and also environmentally responsible.
“The FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award aims to raise awareness of the benefits of ergonomic design to those selecting the products. The Award also provides assurance to customers investing in ergonomically designed workplace furniture and workstations that products are of the highest ergonomic standard.
“The benefits of ergonomics for workforce health, wellbeing, morale, turnover, attendance and productivity are becoming increasingly clear.”
Levent continued: “The importance and understanding of ergonomics is growing rapidly, with many educational authorities and establishments seeing the benefits of using ergonomically designed products in terms of health and safety as well as behaviour and ability to learn. FIRA’s recognition of genuine ergonomic excellence in the design and manufacture of products will provide distinction from competitors, whilst assisting specifiers in purchasing genuinely ergonomically designed furniture.”
Responding to news of the FIRA accolade, Martyn Colebrook, from Colebrook Bosson Saunders, said: “We are delighted that the Flo Monitor arm has received the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award. This means that people who buy our product are assured that the Flo Monitor arm has been designed with their safety, comfort and ease of use in mind, as well as being aesthetically pleasing and fit for purpose.”
