    We use something like this in our Emergency Departments

    They are not ergonomically perfect in that some do not have the mouse at the same level as the KB in order to make them narrower… try this link

    you could also google “stinger carts” as they have similar products.

    Good luck!

    I recently saw this item in the “House of the Future” in Epcot at Disney on Orlando FL…

    If I remember right there was a sensor on the wall that controlled seat function…

    from a housing square footage perspective it will save the space needed for a Bidet…and it will solve the old issue of marital disputes over leaving the seat up or not…as you can customize the controls….!!!!

    Maybe some marriage counselors will be out of work as a result of it !!!

    Fred – I agree with you – ..I am married to an Architect and – not to boast – but he often thinks of ergonomic and work flow issues before I do.

    In the US so much of the design process is dictated by Codes and ADA. A good architect has to incorporate function if they want to appeal to the client.

    As far as my professional life..I review the plans for renovation and new construction at our facilities. I rarely have run into an architect that wasn’t open to complying with the clients requests – isn’t that what the business is about? – Fitting the needs of the client to the space, within a budget to make a viable work/living space that is appealing to the eye?

    Now – on the other hand – interior designers in my experience often have the FUNCTION of an item or space as their LAST priority…the BEAUTY of it has to be first..that is – in my experience where the greatest need for education on the value of ergonomics needs to happen!!

    At our facilities IAQ is a sub committe of the Safety committee. Infection Control, Engineering and Employee Health nurse are the main members of the IAQ group. Please contact me at [email protected] as I would like to talk, as we seem to have similar positions in the same part of the country!

    We are not-for -profit and our IT department is able to get them much cheaper through our IT buyer …Sorry – I didn’t realize the retail cost was that much. Good luck

    You may want to try the Roller mouse by Contour Design. It transfers the mousing function to either hand with the control being in front of the space bar – that way you can load share – and you can leave the mouse hooked up while you acclimate to the new way of mousing. In my experience, some folks love it and others don’t – but it is in the price range you are looking for and may help you out.

    there is a folding cart that has 2 shelves, one at about waist height and the other lower to the ground – it can fold up and be put in her car to be used at any location. It is called the Clax Cart http://www.warequip.com.au/index1.php?option=products&task=view&prodid=20
