What is a monitor arm? What is its purpose?
A monitor arm mounts to your desk, elevating your single or dual monitors to ergonomic eye-level. A fully articulating one gives you total control over your external monitor(s) position, to find a neutral, comfortable posture. Concealing cables as it lifts your monitor(s) out of the way, the product also creates a tidy, professional workspace. C-clamp or grommet-mounted are the most popular styles for easy, non-permanent, non-marking installation and VESA compatibility. Monitor arm use helps prevent Digital Eye Strain (Computer Vision Syndrome), computer neck pain (Tech Neck), and shoulder pain from sitting at a desk.
