ST. PAUL, Minn., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ergotron, Inc., a Nortek company (Nasdaq: NTK) and a leader in the sit-stand workplace revolution, will be featured on the Lifetime reality series, Office Spaces. In this office makeover reality show, interior designer Kalyn Rothaus provides viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the renovations that convert old and outdated spaces into modern hi-tech office spaces.
Ergotron's sit-stand office desks and its OmniMount brand TV mounts will be highlighted on March 11, 2016. In this episode, Rothaus and crew will transform an outdated warehouse into a sleek, modern office space for series producer Brandstar. Shown in the offices are Ergotron's flagship WorkFit-S Dual Monitor Sit-Stand Workstations, OmniMount Ceiling and PJT40 Projector mounts, Ergotron's Zip12 Charging Wall Cabinet, LX Side-By-Side Dual Monitor Desk Mounts and assorted monitor wall mounts.
"Employee job satisfaction is about more than the job itself; it's about how people are working and interacting with one another. An active sit-stand work environment can have a huge impact on wellness and satisfaction and it's precisely how today's office spaces should be designed," said Betsey Banker, CWWPM, wellness industry manager at Ergotron. "Not only do you address office ergonomics, health and productivity, you also start creating a culture of movement that extends well-beyond the corporate setting."
Vital to any new office design is to create an environment that supports good posture, in seated or standing positions. A recent study by Stanford University, in which participants used sit-stand workstations, established that low back pain may be improved by their use, enabling "postural variation" throughout the workday.
"Our sit-stand workstations allow seamless movement between sitting and standing positions, offering users ergonomic comfort in addition to many other health-related benefits," said Pete Segar, group president, display mount solutions for Nortek. "We will continue to build on our WorkFit® product line to help impact the health and productivity of the world's office workers."
