The LS-B52 model allows secondary school and university students to collaborate in pairs or as a three-person group on a computer and still be able to comfortably take notes. The tri-unit design with 21" to 28" free-standing mobilewings, allows the 3-student squadron to separate and group elsewhere as needed.

Model LS-B52

The LS-B52 model of The Learning Station™ is for limited space interactive classrooms, having more students than computers.

The center unit is the LS-512 model. Abutting both sides of the LS-512 are "mobilewings" with movable desktops. The desktops are capable of sliding forward as much as 17" to comfortably facilitate lab-partner screen viewing WHILE those students are taking notes.

The mobilewing design with pull-forward worksurface instantly creates unlimited leg room and unobstructed knee room for virtually any size student. It offers significantly better monitor viewing and more comfortable note-taking for lab-partners than any other desking option.

ERGONOMICS and development of The LEARNING STATION™ models of The OFFICE™
A member of Summerland's engineering team underwent Carpal Tunnel surgery in the early '70s, long before most of the world had even heard of RSI's. We are particularly attuned to ergonomic considerations in product development.

Electro-entopic (from the Greek - entopos meaning: in its correct place), describes ergonomically correct placement, within the unit, of electric, electronic, and mechanical components, as well as functional task areas.

"Preventing Computer Injuries"

Ergonomics is the science that seeks to fit the job or task to the individual rather than expecting the individual to conform to the job or task.
It seeks to adapt work or working conditions to suit the worker.

Recommended Working Posture
1.Sit with your lower back against the chair and your feet flat on the floor or on a foot rest.
2.Adjust your table and chair so that your elbows are bent at right angles and your forearms are approximately parallel to the floor.
3.Keep your wrist neutral (straight) by using a wrist rest that is the same height as the keyboard.
4.Place your mouse on a surface close to and at the same height as your keyboard.
5.Position your monitor directly in front of you, approximately an arm's length away, with the top of the screen slightly below eye level. Tip the monitor back at an angle similar to that used when reading a book.
6.Use a document holder to position work at eye level.
7.Adjust your lighting and monitor to prevent glare or use an anti-glare filter.
8.Use adjustable tables and chairs to correctly position the keyboard or monitor.
