Vertically and laterally adjustable, CIM med height adjustable arms allow for the perfect positioning of a monitor and/or flat panel display. Parallel linkage guarantees a constant viewing angle at any position. The flat panel or monitor stays level at all times. To provide the perfect combination of arm and monitor, the CIM med height adjustable arm features a simple quarter-turn lock that holds it safely in position when removing the monitor. In addition, the arm is equipped with the unique safety feature of a slow-release gas spring - should anybody try to remove the monitor before locking.
Flowing ergonomics means that minimal effort is required in order to attain perfect positioning, CIM med offers complete flexibility with a full range of movements for ultimate viewing angles.
Flexibility in construction is the key for implementing customised modifications quickly; modularity is the key to easily realise literally hundreds of different configurations.
CIM medwas founded in 2007 with just four employees. In parallel, a patent for the unique internal cable management system was applied for and subsequently assigned. The office size was initially 250m2 and production size was 1,000m2. This was quickly outgrown and new premises more than double the size were acquired in 2011. This is now also almost outgrown and the premises are to be greatly expanded in January 2018.
CIM med is active in over 40 countries, with more to come. Activity in North America has been ongoing since 2012 and in 2016, CIM med set up sales directly in the US as well as a logistical centre in North Carolina.
On 25 August 2017, CIM med celebrated its ten-year anniversary and is poised for further growth.
