Teknion Corporation today announced the launch of the Swerv Monitor Arm at showroom #1048 during NeoCon, June 11-13, The Merchandise Mart, Chicago. Swerv is a fully adjustable, spring-assisted dynamic arm designed to support today's evolving technology demands and changing workstyles.
Swerv features a new patent-pending, weight-balancing mechanism similar to Teknion’s patented height-adjustable table weight-balancing mechanism. This innovation enables 98 percent of monitor weights on the market (5 to 12 lbs. or 2.27 to 5.4 kg) to be balanced and adjusted with little effort. With monitors getting larger and lighter, Swerv can be reconfigured to support all monitor sizes – typically all screen sizes under 32 inches (81 cm) – within the weight limit.
“Swerv supports the changing needs of users and the technology they require to work. It responds to the growing demand for flexibility and movement throughout the day, allowing users to periodically change positions while working and adjust their workstations to maximize comfort,” said Dannion Smith, Teknion’s Director, Ergonomic Initiatives. “Monitors are becoming larger and more difficult for users to adjust into positions that support neutral body postures when working. Swerv was designed to swiftly move from a dual to a single configuration, or be positioned in multiple mounting locations while maintaining pleasant aesthetics for the user, all without the use of any additional tools or components.”
The monitor arm comes standard with the three-in-one Swerv Smart Clamp that can be configured into an Edge Clamp, Round Grommet or Thru Mount. The Dual Arm application can be separated into two Single Arm applications, allowing Swerv to accommodate all screen geometries and user-desired setups.
Thoughtful wire management is integrated into the hollow lower reach arm, allowing Swerv to be quickly adjusted to new positions without interference. Cables are managed from the screen to under the worksurface, letting users concentrate on the task at hand and not cable clutter.
Swerve features include:
- height adjustment range of 10 inches (25.4 cm)
- focal depth adjustment of 20.5 inches (52 cm)
- tilt adjustment of 135 degrees
- swivel adjustment of 185 degrees
- monitor positions easily in landscape or portrait format
- arm and reach includes integrated wire management
- Swerv is easily balanced in just a few easy steps
