Disclosure: iMovR and WorkWhileWalking have mutual ownership interest*Mounting Two Monitors on a Standing Desk Has Never Been Easier

Selecting a good monitor arm for a standing desk can be a challenge, as many monitor arms were designed with sitting, rather than standing ergonomics in mind. Using two monitors with a standing desk is twice the challenge. You could buy separate monitor arms for each monitor, and it would work just fine (provided that each arm has enough range to accommodate standing), but it’s not an incredibly elegant solution. iMovR’s [...]

A monitor arm is essential to proper positioning while working at a standing desk—you might be able to get away without one for sitting, but you certainly don’t want to stand for long periods of time without a monitor arm or you run the risk of neck strain, and even back strain if you start to contort your posture to look down at your screen. Like most standing desk manufacturers, iMovR offers its own brand of monitor arms. In this review we look at the most popular model in their premium Tempo line of monitor arms.
There are three different [...]
Most of you may remember the scene from Jurassic Park, in which our plucky heroes find themselves surrounded by a pack of velociraptors itching to tear their faces off. All seems lost when, just in the nick of time, one of the raptors is snatched up by the gargantuan jaws of a T-Rex. That scene came to mind this week when we laid our eyes on the Ergotron LX Sit-Stand monitor arm. The largest monitor arm we’ve tested, this monstrosity easily dwarfs Ergotron’s other desk-mounted arms, even casting its long shadow on their ‘tall pole’ model.Heavy Duty, Light Assembly
The Sit-Stand arrives in a box similar to Ergotron’s other monitor arms, only beefier. Inside, the [...]
Monitor arms are a quintessential part of any ergonomic workstation. You can read about the benefits of proper monitor heights here, but it boils down to this: Setting your monitor at the proper height will protect your neck and shoulders from work strain, and keep you more productive and more comfortable throughout the day. Sounds pretty simple, sure, but with literally hundreds of models available in the marketplace, how do you choose the best monitor arm for your workstation?
In general, the best arms are highly adjustable in height range, horizontal extension, and depth from the user, to ensure optimal viewing [...]
Bild is a highly customizable monitor arm system from Innovative Office Products, the same people who brought us the Winston with its ingenious hand brake. Looking at Bild’s abilities on paper, we’re inclined to think that their name isn’t just for show. We’re currently awaiting a Bild demo unit to arrive at our testing lab for full review. For now, read on to discover our first impressions on Bild’s features.
The first thing anyone notices about Bild is the sheer amount of monitors the system can support. This monitor arm system can easily scale from supporting a minimum of two monitors to a mind-boggling sixteen or more monitors. Most of us don’t need that many [...]
There are literally hundreds of ergonomic monitor arms on the market. Of these, there are core differentiations that are clearly visible, like styling, height adjustment range and number of monitors they’ll hold, and then there are those differences that are invisible to the eye—the internal mechanisms.
The most significant internal difference between different models is whether they are built using air cylinders (a.k.a. gas strut, gas piston, or gas cylinder) or compression springs (a.k.a. spring coils) to provide their counterbalance force.
Compression springs are used primarily because they are more economical, and have no parts to fail or seals to leak so they also [...]
