Choosing the Correct Monitor Arm for Your Computer


Choosing the Correct Monitor Arm for Your Computer

A monitor arm is a device that attaches to your computer screen. It is easily adjustable which means it requires minimum effort but can achieve maximum precision.

A monitor arm gives you full control of your monitor’s positioning, such as height, depth, and angle. It also makes better use of your desk space: a suspended screen means more room and less clutter.

Who is it good for?



We all have different preferences and requirements, so having the freedom to adjust monitors to our exact liking means more comfort, less strain on the neck, shoulders and wrists, and a more productive work environment.

Additionally, monitor arms are ideal for workstations which are shared between more than one user due to factors like long opening hours and multiple shifts. Ergonomic office furniture means users can tailor their workstation to accurately suit them.

It’s also great for those who wear bifocal and multifocal lenses. Standard monitor heights probably won’t be suitable and may result in poor neck posture.

The optimum position of a monitor for someone who wears multifocal lenses is a balance between being able to easily see the screen through the correct lenses as well as minimising neck bends.

Which type is best for me?

Choosing an appropriate monitor arm is simple once you’ve addressed your requirements. Think about the following:

1) Will you normally be using one or two monitors?
Wing monitor arms are excellent for holding two monitors side-by-side (horizontally) or one over the other (vertically).

2) What kind of adjustments do you want?
Height, depth and angle are the three key ones. Ergomotion’s range addresses all three of these adjustment types.

3) How do you want your monitor arm mounted?
Do you want it clamped to the desk? Attached to the wall? Or are you unsure? Ergomotion’s 7Flex Monitor Arm and 7500 Wing Monitor Arm come with a special hardware called “FLEXmount” which means it’s fitted with six mounting options suited to almost any setting.

This is great if you’re not sure which kind of mount to select. You’ve got half a dozen options to choose from now!

What are some tips for optimum monitor positioning?

– A good distance for your monitor arm is normally at about arm’s length – as far away as possible but where you can still read comfortably and are not straining your eyes to see your screen.

– The top of your screen should be just below your eye line. You should be able to read the bottom of the screen without feeling your head bow down.

– Adjust the screen position to eliminate factors like glare and reflections from lights or windows.

Of course, these guidelines will not suit everyone, so it does take a bit of trial and error to determine the best positioning of your monitor.

Basic Monitor Arm

Ergomotion has a great range of monitor arms. The following are our most popular.

Our basic model is the 7Flex Monitor Arm. It has 360 degree rotation, a horizontal range of 61cm, and vertical range of 40cm. It is equipped with FLEXmount, giving you flexibility to choose how you want it mounted.

The six mounting options of FLEXmount are:
– Desk clamp
– Thru-desk
– Wall
– Reverse wall
– Grommet hole (a hole greater than 6.4cm)
– Side bolt

Next is the 7500 Wing Monitor Arm. This monitor arm can support two monitors at once. This is great for dual-screen users because they can be neatly integrated side-by-side, or stacked one on top of the other. The 7500 Wing Monitor is also equipped with FLEXmount.

Finally, the Evo Monitor Arm is a single arm designed for smaller panels ranging from 12″ to 24″. It can be viewed in portrait or landscape. It comes with three mounting options: desk edge, grommet, and thru-desk.

While these monitor arms are our most popular, they are only a small sample of what we can supply. We offer a great range that can suit all customer needs.

Guy was extremely helpful and made sure I got the right desk to suit me, not just recommending the most expensive one. The desk I got was at a solid price, and was exactly what I was after. Highly recommend Ergomotion.

I purchased an electric sit-stand desk from ErgoMotion over a month ago, and hands down can say this has been the best purchase I've made for my home office and I regret not getting one sooner. Build quality and usability is fantastic, was easy to assemble, all the cable mess is hidden in the tray. Also, important to note that Guy and the team has been fantastic to deal with.

Can’t recommend Ergomotion enough. Guy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Answered all my questions promptly. I bought the Edesk with the rubberwood top and it’s amazing. Highest quality and a solid build. You can’t beat Linak tech for standing desks. Also delivery was super simple and quick.

Absolutely love my desk. I had been looking for MONTHS for a standing desk. Indecision was killing me, and my back, as I needed one desperately to change up my day when working from home. I was worried about the size, quality and durability, as well as warranty. All sites I found were either the wrong sizes for me, lack of warranty information, and not enough good (or not enough) reviews to be spending quite a bit of money on. I have trust issues. Thankfully I found Ergomotion - who has so many great reviews for many reasons. The owner, Guy, is very responsive and helpful. Replied to one of my questions instantly regarding colour options for the desk. I was also very happy to know that the desk is picked up/delivered assembled. Guy was very patient with my delay in picking up my desk, and was super helpful to change my order to be delivered, with a quick turn around, to accommodate me. The delivery drivers were great too! It was an easy and great experience and I'm glad I spent the money I did for a great product and supporting a local and small business.

One of the best services I’ve ever had! Contacted Guy and he walked me through all the options and features of their desks, and just in a few days he delivered the assembled desk to my house by himself. Very professional and efficient! Thanks heaps Guy! Tim

Bought a couple of Ergomotion's edesk standing desks (LINAK DF2) and they have been great; Very sturdy and moves up/down quietly. Guy was excellent to deal with as he is extremely knowledgeable about the product, very customer focussed, and provides great after sales support.
