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.

I would highly recommend this electric desk to all ages, the the best decision I’ve made for my sons study table. The service was excellent, prompt in responses and on time schedule with the delivery time. The removalists were very careful bringing into our study room on the second level.
Very happy with the purchase!!

Amazing e-desk - sturdy, spacious and great quality wood. It fits well into the home office. Assembling it was mostly straightforward with the video! Thanks Guy

I'm only just reading all the Google Reviews now, just before writing this, after having purchased and built a desk; and this is basically going to be saying the same thing as all the others, the owner, Guy, is absolutely great and so are the desks. There's a reason why all the reviews are genuine 5 stars. I had been doing research on numerous sit/stand desks and the manufactures of the frames/motors that go into them. I wanted a good quality and reliable setup so I decided to something that utilised Linak (manufacturer) hardware and so I set out trying to find a sit/stand desk that used them. As I was after something specific, I contacted a number businesses before placing an order so that I understood exactly what it was I was purchasing. Unfortunately most of those other businesses seemed more interested in B2B, and a couple didn't even bother responding. I had even gone so far as to contact a business in Canada, who eagerly could supply everything, but unfortunately not for running on 240v. I almost gave up and was just about to head to Ikea. Then I came across Ergomotion. I shot through an email with some questions about their Edesk, and I got a clear informative response within hours. The owner, Guy, kindly followed up, answered further questions, and was also able to order extra parts from Linak on request. To ensure I had all the information I needed before placing an order, he even went so far as to warn me of a slight upcoming price increase. Guy knows his products, knows it in great detail and has a wealth of helpful knowledge.

Great customer service and desk is exactly as described. Setting it all up was straight forward too. The electric movement up and down is really smooth and quiet - couldn't be happier!

After a very unpleasant and disappointing customer service experience with another desk from one of the more "well-known" commercial standing desk companies, I came across Ergomotion and Guy after extensive research to find a replacement and I am glad turned out this way. Dealing with Guy was an absolute pleasure, he was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a range of customisation options including a solid rubberwood desk top which I decided on after seeing the desk in person. In the end, I ended up with a higher quality desk and look forward to continue using it for years to come. Thanks Guy!

We’ve had an Ergomotion High /Low Desk since 2015, well before standing at a work station was a “Thing” in Australia. It’s been fabulous! It’s reliable, speedy and quiet in its height adjustments. Guy, the business owner, is approachable for after sales service queries. To achieve more posture positions & comfort, we use a 10cm foot stool while standing! Many thanks Guy for the great service… Cheers Avril & Tony (Heidelberg West, formerly Moorabbin)

Before purchasing from Ergomotion, I wondered how a business can actually have a 5.0 star perfect rating on Google. After purchasing an electric standing desk and dealing with Guy, I know how. 1) HIGH QUALITY: The desks from here all use high quality LINAK motors and frames. The desk top that I received was commercial grade laminate from Laminex. 2) GENUINE SERVICE: When I initially wanted a more expensive variant, Guy explained to me the differences and suggested the more affordable variant. 3) CUSTOMISATION: Guy helped me customise the size of the size of my desktop - something no other business offered. 4) CONVENIENCE: For a nominal fee, Guy delivered the desk, FULLY ASSEMBLED. All I did was plug it in. Can't get this level of convenience with any other of the many businesses that offer standing desks. If I buy another standing desk, it will be from Ergomotion.

Amazing customer service and quality product and exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend Ergomotion for their exception product offering and service.

Jake Port 12/03/22

Quality at a reasonable price which is made even better by Guy. You’re made to feel special and nothing is too hard which in this day and age, is honestly hard to come by. Do yourself a favour and support a local family business.
