When your neck is hurting, or you are experiencing numbness in your fingers, is far too late to consider the shortcomings of your current work area's furniture. Fortunately, common sense has much to say when it comes to picking the best working set up for using a computer for hours at a time.

One of our recent taglines for our NOVALinked™ product was the subject of a couple of comments on one of our social media sites.  The tagline is “Take Control…”  The ellipsis can then be followed by the words: classroom, training room, lecture hall, office, customer service, reception area, etc.  To understand the idea behind “Take Control…” it’s important to understand what NOVALinked™ is and how it works with The Trolley™ E-Class monitor lifts.
