Dannion Smith, director, Product Management, Seating & Ergonomic Products, explained:

We wanted to create a monitor arm that was simple to use but provided the necessary weight support many monitors require. Seamless movements allow users to create the ideal positioning when they are sitting or standing in front of the monitor screens.

Swerv XL can accommodate a single large monitor or dual monitors. With the 30-inch cross brace, dual monitors will remain sturdy and in the desired position, says the company.

To enhance control while adjusting the monitors’ positioning, Swerv XL features a handle that allows the user to move the monitors to the exact position required with minimal effort. The arm is engineered to feel “weightless” in use.

Contrast Screen

A newly developed Swerv Contrast Screen is also available to add to Swerv XL and the entire Swerve offering. The Contrast Screen is made of smooth felt and placed behind the monitors to create a neutral backdrop that frames monitors. The screen helps resolve visual issues that arise due to contrast between the monitor and other light sources.

Contrast Screen helps increase privacy, reduce eyestrain, and provide a defined focal point. The addition of Contrast Screen helps users pay more direct attention to their screens than to peripheral activities.
