Neutral Posture, Inc. has been named an award winner for two contract seating solutions in the annual Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX). Winning with the new Connexion®Arm and NeXtep® Wide. In the last 20 years, ADEX has become the largest and most prestigious awards program for product design of furniture, fixtures and finishes marketed to the design trade.
"The 2013-14 ADEX Awards attracted upwards of 500 companies submitting more than 2,000 innovative new products," said John Platter, executive director of ADEX. "The ADEX Award has recognized many outstanding product designs over the years, and Neutral Posture has earned its place among that elite group."
The Connexion® Arm received the ADEX Platinum Award, an attachment designed to fit Neutral Posture chairs, has been developed to allow technology to be used without compromising ergonomics.. It can be used in a seated or standing position, thus turning your chair into a complete sit/stand workstation. The Connexion® Arm is completely adjustable similar to a monitor arm. It is mounted on either the left side, right side or one on each side of a chair. The end user can adjust the height of the tablet, the distance from the tablet, as well as position the tablet vertically or horizontally.
Taking the next step to providing the safest, most ergonomic stool possible, the NeXtep® makes traditional footings obsolete with its stability and comfort. The NeXtep® Wide received the ADEX Silver Award and boasts of an 18" x 31.25" platform for comfortable and ergonomic positioning of the feet and legs. It supports up to 400 pounds and provides a strong, stable step for entering and exiting the stool. The NeXtep® Wide is available with 8" or 10" legs as well as your choice of locking casters or glides. Add a NeXtep® to your lab or counter height stool and you immediately upgrade the environment.
"We are honored to receive our 12th and 13th ADEX Award for design. American ingenuity is alive and well, and we are proving that every day," said Rebecca Boenigk, Neutral Posture CEO and Chairman of the Board.
