The refined design of the Wishbone family frees space on your work surface while allowing you to position your screen at the proper distance to ease neck and eye strain. A combination of robust engineering and precise controls on this computer monitor arm allow you to position one or several screens exactly where you need them, then trust that they won’t budge an inch.
What's In It For You
Designed for scalability, Wishbone keeps your options open to add additional equipment as your needs evolve. A single post can support up to four screens, giving you the reassurance that Wishbone solutions can grow at the same pace as your need for technology.
The heavy-duty construction of Wishbone allows you to place your screen in exactly the right place for your eyes and the work you do—and then be confident that it will stay in that position. The Wishbone family is robustly engineered to support even today’s heavier monitors without succumbing to gravity’s pull. Set it once, and rely on it to help keep your body aligned in a healthy posture.
Range of Applications
Wishbone provides a sturdy, uncluttered way to hold anywhere from a single monitor today to as many as four screens tomorrow. The Wishbone family can accommodate screens up to 52 pounds, mount to a variety of surfaces, and be configured in either portrait or landscape orientation.
Wishbone monitor arms are made from at least 31 percent post-consumer content and are 100 percent recyclable. All Wishbone products have been GREENGUARD certified, and they can contribute to LEED certification.
Wishbone's scalable design keeps your options open, adding multiple monitors to a single post as your needs evolve. Its streamlined design frees space on your work surface while positioning your screen at the proper distance to ease neck and eye strain.
The Wishbone Plus offers similar articulation as the standard Wishbone, but is sturdy enough to support heavier displays.

When we design things, we have always looked to the human body for inspiration. Bend your arm at the elbow, stretch it out, rotate your hand at the wrist. You have just experienced the inspiration for our monitor arms.
The adjustability of these arms is an important component in giving workers ergonomic support. When we recently asked companies about the types of monitors they use, 84% said flat screens. And 58% noted that they use desktop computers, with separate display, CPU, and keyboard.
Designers Peter Bosson and Brenda Saunders anticipated this trend. In the mid 1980s, they invented the first monitor arm. They led a joint research program into workstation ergonomics involving their company—U.K.-based Colebrook Bosson Saunders—and Olivetti. The effort resulted from the strong connections they had built with Ettore Sottsas, design consultant for Olivetti. By 1999, they had invented the first flat screen monitor arm.
Acquiring Colebrook Bosson Saunders in 2010 has added new expertise to our ergonomics solutions. The company is an excellent fit given its global standing as a pioneer in ergonomic solutions.
Our combined strength—especially in supporting monitors—is directed at a growing trend for many companies. Recently, we asked business leaders what elements will drive the design of their work environments in the next 3 to 5 years. Fully 43% said the need to accommodate multiple monitors.
The increased use of monitors makes flexibility and adjustability two key factors for support. Letting people easily change screen orientation from portrait to landscape gives them freedom to use preferred postures. Providing adjustability allows fine-tuning the position of single or multiple screens to avoid glare.
