Philips has launched a new 24-inch LED-backlit LCD ErgoSensor Monitor. Its main feature is the high-tech sensor that keeps a tab on the viewer to retain a good posture while working at the computer, says the company’s website.
CMOS sensor, built-in ErgoSensor monitor, can determine the angle of neck, the distance between the pupils. Thus, the “caring” display will warn if the user is sitting too close, remind you to straighten your back, and after a long work it will also advise you to take a break. Software for the monitor has been developed by DigitalOptics.
Design of the monitor also meets ergonomic standards. Stand SmartErgoBase allows you to rotate and tilt the screen and adjust the tilt and height.
Fine-tuning of position is one of the important functions of this display, said Wired magazine while quoting David Rempel, professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. Prof. Rempel says that if your monitor is set too high or too low, you will be forced to pull the head, and this can lead to pain in the neck. Rempel advises to set the height of the screen so that it was located on the middle 10 or 20 degrees below eye level.
ErgoSensor also cares about the environment. It turns-on or turns-off automatically according if it detects the user is sitting in front or\f it or not. Moreover, the monitor casing is made of 65% recycled plastic. Phillips has put a price tag of 285 euros for this monitor.
