The new Carl’s Table® Model CT08 from Anthro has received the Gold Award in the Worksurfaces: Height-Adjustable category in the Best of NeoCon Competition 2008.
Best of NeoCon annually recognizes the most innovative and functional products as judged by leaders in interior design, architecture, and facilities management.
Anthro is so pleased to be recognized by NeoCon for Carl’s Table. Anthro’s team of designers and engineers are very honored by this award”, says Anthro co-founder Cathy Filgas.
The CT08 is the most advanced ergonomic radiology furniture to date for reading soft copy and for teleradiology applications. It’s a height adjustable ergonomic table with motorized height movement and quick leg speed adjustment from 28.5” to 48.5”. The electric tilt adjusts from 0 – 15 degrees to facilitate all individual work positions, sitting or standing. The tilting surface supports the forearm and shoulders, dramatically decreasing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. CT08 also has 99 programmable height and tilt presets for individual users.
Not only does the CT08 hold up to four monitors on arms, its Monitor Control System™ electronically moves the monitors in tandem forward/backward and up/down with the touch of a button. Monitors are mounted to a rail and actuators control the up/down and in/out action. The tilt for each monitor can be adjusted manually.
Appropriate lighting is crucial for any radiology desk; Carl’s Table’s improved glare-free ambient back lighting is achieved with the station’s adaptive lighting system. An automatic sensor can be pointed to one of the two middle diagnostic monitors and will respond to the light density of that monitor. The flexible task lights can be ideally positioned and manually dimmed independently from the back lighting.
Air circulation has been added on the work surface to achieve ultimate comfort in PACS furniture. A powered 3-port USB hub (for laptops and memory devices) is easily accessed on the work surface. A large “Coffee Surface”, ideal for personal items, is mounted either to the left or to the right of the work surface and remains level when the tilt mechanism is engaged.
The shelves on Carl’s Table, Model CT08 are made out of MDF board and with a durable Dark Grey membrane-pressed finish; the metal is steel and aluminum with a powder-coated silver metallic color. It comes standard with a footrest, one back light, two LED task lights, ten power outlets attached to the back of the table and four in the front for easy access for equipment, and up to four monitor mounts. A fifth monitor, typically a system monitor in radiology applications, installs on an optional Anthro LCD Arm. One CPU Holder is standard with the table, but a second CPU Holder can be purchased as an accessory, and will fit on the opposite side of the table. The fabric covered privacy panel shields from behind and to the sides of the table to reduce noise by as much as 35%. There is a 1 year warranty for Electrical/Mechanical and all other components have a 5 year warranty.
As part of the package, an Anthro Field Service Engineer travels to the site to ensure that the Carl’s Table Model CT08 is installed and working properly. A complete training for all the users is also included in the delivery.
