Herman Miller Inc., continues its commitment to being the worldwide leader in health-positive products with the introduction of several new ergonomic technology solutions at the 2012 NeoCon World’s Trade Fair at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, June 11-13.

“Our technology support continues to evolve and expand to help people use the latest technology in a way that increases efficiency and improves their overall health,” said Wayne Baxter, Herman Miller’s Thrive Portfolio Lead. “And we’re excited to showcase our latest ergonomic solutions at this year’s NeoCon.”

The original Flo Dynamic Monitor Support changed the market by delivering fingertip control that lets people move their screen exactly where they want with minimal effort and maximum precision. Unlike any other product on the market, Flo maneuvers into a low, rear tilted position that supports all eyes— even those with progressive lenses. At NeoCon 2012, Herman Miller’s Thrive Portfolio will show the expansion of those benefits to a full range of technical applications. Each unique solution utilizes the same leading edge, patented geometric spring system to provide an unmatched range of motion with fluid, intuitive monitor adjustments that reduce eyestrain, promote healthy postures, and improve productivity.

  • Flo Dual – Uses a single clamp that accommodates two Flo Monitor Supports for two dynamically adjustable monitors
  • Flo Modular – Post-mounted, dual Flo configuration for the ability to easily add dynamically adjustable screens
  • Flo Plus – Supports heavy duty monitors up to 40 pounds using the same patented technology as Flo Monitor Support
  • Flo Plus Dual – Supports two screens on a single arm allowing adjacent screens to maintain their relationship through their entire range of motion
  • Flo Rail Tile Mount – Same patented technology as Flo Monitor Support; Ideal for Canvas Rail Tile Mounts

Each option is built with the same 75% recycled, 99% recyclable materials that earned the original Flo its MBDC Cradle-to-Cradle certification.

Also making its NeoCon debut, the Herman Miller Tablet Mount allows tablet devices to attach to most Herman Miller monitor supports, moving mobile technology off the work surface to free up space while supporting a healthy work environment. When combined with the original Flo monitor support it offers the first truly dynamic tablet mount, offering the flexibility to choose the vertical, horizontal, and tilt position needed to work more efficiently, reduce strain, and encourage healthy sitting.

The Thrive Portfolio will feature two additional technology support solutions including a new Laptop Mount that allows laptops to be attached to most Herman Miller monitor supports, and a Keyboard Mechanism with a refined design that reduces the overall thickness to prevent knee-knocking.   

All of these technology support solutions work together with proper seating, desking, and lighting to provide choice, and create efficient, health-positive workspaces.
