ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- (HIMSS booth #5432) -- Ergotron, Inc., a Nortek Company (NASDAQ: NTK) and global leader of ergonomic healthcare mounting and mobility solutions, continues to increase its investment and commitment to help healthcare facilities achieve better patient outcomes through ergonomically designed workstations that support complex and ever-changing care workflows. The ability of facilities and providers to create the infrastructure necessary to adapt to new technologies has a direct link to the level of care being provided. Ergotron will showcase its "whole hospital" approach at HIMSS 2016 in Las Vegas with its expanding portfolio of medical carts, workstations, and telehealth, imaging and tablet solutions for hospitals, clinics, and long-term care facilities.

"At Ergotron we value our role in helping to create and design medical equipment for the next wave of healthcare technology and we understand the importance of providing customers with equipment that is flexible and capable of adapting to the rapidly changing needs of their environments," said Bob Hill, Ergotron healthcare industry manager. "We are engaged with the global medical community and will be for a long time to come, providing healthcare facilities with the tools necessary to achieve better end-to-end experiences for their patients."

Ergotron enables the whole hospital – from the back office to the point of care – providing products that meet the needs of clinical staff, administrators and IT teams. Central to the healthcare portfolio is its StyleView® Medical Carts and drawer accessories, which bring maximum workflow customization to the point of care. Hospitals can now configure Ergotron's StyleView Medical Cart with an even broader suite of new single, double or triple customizable, electronically-controlled drawers which offer remote monitoring in both powered and non-powered models to meet their evolving needs.

Ergotron recognizes that technology is only effective when it is accessible and functional. If the necessary equipment doesn't fit within the clinical workflow, it limits the caregiver's ability to execute their jobs and can ultimately impact the quality of care patients receive. An Ergotron report, "How Digital Healthcare Helps and Hurts Nurses," surveyed 250 full-time U.S. nurses and found that 65 percent of nurses believe their biggest challenge today is how technology, like expanded tablet use, is integrated throughout the workflow. To that end, Ergotron also offers offer the most complete line of wall mount, desktop, and cart charging systems to keep devices charged and ready for action throughout any shift. The company's lightweight StyleView SV10 tablet and laptop carts will also be on display at HIMSS, including the SV10 S-Tablet Cart, for Microsoft Surface.
