GCX Launches New Support Arm for Tablets

October 4, 2018

PETALUMA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--Patients now have a new option to safely view apps and online content using tablets with the launch of the GCX VHM-T variable height arm. This latest addition to the growing fleet of GCX mounting solutions provides exceptional cable management and a wide range of safe viewing angles to improve patient engagement at the point of care.

“As a manufacturer that designs mounting solutions exclusively for medical environments, our newest arm meets a growing need for medical communities wanting to best leverage the popularity of tablets to improve their patients’ experiences and their responses on HCAHPS patient satisfaction surveys,” said Cris Daugbjerg, GCX Vice President of Development and Sales.

Among the new arm’s core features and benefits:

Unparalleled precision, ease of movement and adjustability so the arm moves readily and smoothly into place at every point within its full range of motion for optimal positioning and viewing. Outstanding cable management for easier cleaning and simple access for service and maintenance. Medical-grade for maximum cleanability and durability to withstand constant use and harsh cleaning regimens typically used in healthcare facilities for infection control.

The GCX VHM-T is part of the company’s growing patient engagement-focused product line manufactured under its ISO 13485 certified quality system. This arm and other solutions, like the award-winning Patient Engagement Table, help healthcare organizations provide apps to educate, connect and entertain patients during outpatient visits and hospitalizations.
