Monitor arms, articulated arms or screen holders: one product, many advantages
More freedom, more comfort…and therefore more productivity
Monitor arms have been a popular accessory for people working with a desktop computer. They allow you to hold monitors at an ergonomic height and distance for optimal viewing and are highly recommended to prevent neck and back pain as well. There are several types of monitor arms on the market, such as table mount arms and wall mount arms. Table mount arms are the most common and can be adjusted in height and distance, while wall mount arms save space on the desk.
