PHOENIX, ARIZ. —
Inspired by the growing
research indicating the negative effects
of prolonged sitting, OmniMount has
begun shipping its new ActionMount
series of mounting products designed
to promote healthy and comfortable usage
of computers and TVs.
The two lines — dubbed Work and
Play — consist of five products: two
computer mounts (Work15, Work20)
and three TV mounts (Play20,
Play20X and Play40). Each has sitstand
adjustability that encourages
consumers to change positions while
operating PCs and TVs.
The collection utilizes Ergotron’s patented

“Electronics like TVs and computers have the
natural tendency to encourage sedentary behavior.
It’s becoming more apparent how big of an
impact that’s having on our health, and it’s time
for our industry to rethink a few things,” said
John Deutsch, senior VP of North American
sales. “We’re making it our social responsibility
to offer products that break the mold and have the
ability to create healthier, more active lifestyles. Our message?
Keep doing what you love and we’ll help you do it
The Work products are designed to provide a computer
mount solution that maximizes space and adjusts
to the ergonomic needs of different users. According to
OmniMount, research has indicated that the simple act
of standing has significant health benefits, such as increased
metabolic rate and positive effects on other
bodily systems. CF technology allows for simple,
light-touch adjustments of the keyboard, mouse
and monitor, so users can easily move between
sitting and standing positions.
The Work15 supports a single
monitor up to 15 pounds and
Work20 supports two side-by-side
monitors up to 20 pounds. Installation
is via desk clamp or grommet
mounting and cable clips control
wires for a clean finish.
The Play products are designed to give TV
users a new level of interaction and encourage
activities like exercising and gaming. With up to
20 inches of vertical adjustment, users can instantly
reposition their TV for the perfect viewing during standing
or seated activities. The Play20 and Play20X fit TVs
from 19 inches to 32 inches up to 20 pounds
and offer vertical travel up to 13 inches.
The Play40 fits TVs from 30 inches to 55
inches up to 40 pounds with 20 inches of vertical
