EMMA Electric Monitor Arm
The ergonomic monitor arm has been around for over 40 years and is adequate for most single and dual monitor applications where the displays are below a certain weight and size. They’re an especially essential device for eliminating neck strain for standing desk users, who need to adjust the height of their displays every time they switch from sitting to standing. But when it comes to moving a very large monitor such as some of today’s very wide and heavy panoramic curved displays—or more than two displays together—they reach the limits of their mechanical counterbalance designs.
That’s why iMovR created the new Emma electric monitor arm, to handle the size, weight, and number of displays more commonly being used today.
Up to 6 Screens with 12 Possible Configurations
Each of EMMA’s two rows can handle up to three displays and/or laptop mounts. You can configure the EMMA for all 12 possible combinations of up to six displays, such as 2-over-2 or 1-over-3. Or even for just one gargantuan display or two very wide panoramic displays mounted 1-over-1. And everything else in between.
Best of all, you won’t have to be a rocket technician to install the EMMA. We provide clear documentation and video installation guides for all 12 configurations so there’s no guesswork.
The Most Powerful Monitor Arm Ever Created
With the ability to lift up to six displays and/or laptop holders with a brawny 150 lbs of maximum lift capacity, the EMMA stands in a class of its own.
In standard configuration each VESA mount can support up to 20 lbs, for a toral lift capacity of 120 lbs. With optional Heavy Duty Support Collars each VESA mount can hold up to a 25 lbs display, for a total lift capacity of 150 lbs.
The center VESA mounts on both the top and bottom row can take up to 75 lbs each.
ConstantFocus™ Monitor Arm
There are multi-display monitor arm systems out there with a slightly bent crossbar that can bring the outer displays a little closer to the user, but on such a shallow radius that your eyes are still forced to stop and refocus to see the outer zones clearly.
Curved computer displays have the same limitation; even the most radically curved screens made today (1500R) would require the user to stand five feet away from the monitor to have equal focal depth at all points. That’s great for watching movies from the sofa, but a typical computer user is sitting only 20″–30″ from their screens.
With Its breakthrough ConstantFocus™ wrap-around adjustability, the EMMA keeps all of your displays at the same focal depth. This reduces strain on your eyes’ ciliary muscles and speeds your brain’s processing of visual information. For stock traders, dispatchers, gamers, and other users who need to have the fastest hand-eye-brain coordination, no other single monitor arm can deliver the goods.
Straight Vertical Pathway with No Arcing
While the EMMA can of course be used on any desk, it was created especially for standing desk users who want to keep their display(s) centered at all times, regardless of their posture and position. Because our lower spines stretch out when we stand, to avoid neck strain we need to raise our monitors relative to our keyboard height each time we change postures. Virtually all other mechanical monitor mounts have an inherent arcing motion when raising or lowering the displays (with the one exception of iMovR’s Trace Arm). That arcing motion results in the center point of our displays annoyingly shifting to the left or right compared to their position when we’re seated.
EMMA moves your monitors straight up and down, with no change in the center point or focal depth of your monitors.
Digital Controller with Bluetooth
The EMMA is controlled with the same Linak gesture control paddle as is used on iMovR's Lander Lite standing desks. And that means it has Bluetooth built right in.
The existing Linak App allows for pre-programming "sit" and "stand" heights that the EMMA will automatically move to with just a double-tap on the paddle. A future update to iMovR's Ergodynamics App will be released later in 2022 for controlling both the desk, monitor arm and other workstation accessories with a single tap on the phone for "sit" or "stand", and other innovative features.
EMMA’s linear actuator column is equipped with a PIEZO™ sensor for accurate and reliable anti-collision. You can also program the controller to set a minimum and maximum height limit to prevent accidental collision with the desktop or the ceiling (an important safety feature if small children are around).
