Philips Monitors brand licence partner MMD today announced the release of the 24-inch ErgoSensor display.

Citing a recent study showing that 80% of "knowledge workers" experience pain and fatigue after a long working day at their desks, MMD pointed out that there is a lack of height-adjustable displays available.

The Philips ErgoSensor is intended to address these issues. It features a height-adjustable, swivel and tiltable base, enabling users to adjust the height and angle of the monitor. The display's AMVA LED technology delivers wide-view super-high contrast, designed for more vivid images.

According to MMD, ErgoSensor technology is capable of detecting the position of the user's face and head angle; measuring the distance between the user's eyes and the monitor; and suggesting how users can adjust their posture or correct their distance from the screen. It also tracks the time spent at the screen and reminds people when they are due a break.

"The new 24-inch ErgoSensor display testifies to MMD's continued commitment to workplace ergonomics," explains Thomas Schade, vice president, MMD.

"As the study by MMD shows, there is much room for improvement in how offices are equipped to maintain health and wellbeing, and it's something we take very seriously. Better ergonomics in the office also pays off in terms of greater productivity: there's no room in modern work environments for work-related injury and diminished efficiency. An early investment in the right ergonomic equipment is soon reflected in the bottom line."

The new monitor will be available in the first quarter of 2014 across the Middle East region.
