The Learning Station

Design, Safety and Reliability-Quality


Defines material and performance specifications for fully assembled and wired, standardized, automated, self-contained, ergonomic, mobile combination workstation-desks for classroom applications. The 12 volt dc Summerlift™ monitor lift permits the unit to work as both a computer workstation and conventional desk.

The monitor, CPU, keyboard and mouse lower behind a protective sheet metal shroud with powered (12 v dc) raising/lowering controlled by two-handed OSHA-type safety (the student user must depress two switches simultaneously to initiate Summerlift travel). Monitor height positioning is precisely accomplished by the student (does not require intervention or assistance) . Optional remote on-off Summerlift power control for teacher management of multiple student units is available.

  1. Classwork with computers is safely performed with full security for components and powered precisely adjustable ergonomically responsible work heights via powered monitor raising and lowering.
