ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ergotron, Inc., a Nortek, Inc. company (Nasdaq: NTK) and a global leader in ergonomic healthcare mounting and mobility solutions, has launched the SV10 series of its StyleView® Medical Carts, its lightest cart yet, for a wide array of laptops and tablets. In addition, one cart, the StyleView S-Tablet Cart SV10 was developed exclusively for Microsoft Surface and is compatible with all Surface devices.

The SV10 series is the first new offering and collaborative design from Ergotron and Anthro Corp. engineering, since Nortek's acquisition of Anthro earlier this year. Device usage in healthcare continues to grow, and with it, a need to help integrate these devices into existing clinical workflow.

"This launch is a key example of how Anthro has enabled our Ergonomics & Productivity Solutions business to expand its product portfolio and improve its market presence both domestically and internationally," said Nortek President and Chief Executive Officer Michael J. Clarke.

Weighing just over 30 lbs. (15 kg), the SV10 cart has a patented lift engine that offers caregivers 15 inches (38 cm) of vertical travel for both seated and standing use. Its integrated hand-brake secures the platform height to provide an ultra-stable work surface that is smooth and easy to clean. The t-slot channel interface on the cart's column allows for integration of accessories to customize a solution that's right for a variety of applications for both nurses and technicians. Ergotron's Add-on Power systems can be used to help power a tablet or laptop throughout a shift.

"Nurses have been asking for a lightweight cart that would still offer all the features they love, but in an entirely smaller form factor," said Bob Hill, Ergotron's healthcare industry manager. "With the SV10, hospitals and IT staff have a customizable solution that will address their growing device usage from a brand they already trust."
