Battling workplace health and safety is no easy fix, back and neck pain remain one of the top reasons for employee dissatisfaction and time off work in Australian workplaces. Extended sitting periods lie among the leading cause of neck and back injuries in the modern Australian workforce, with new estimates suggesting between 70-90% of Australia’s population will suffer back and neck pain at some point  and in “2012-13 the cost impact of work-related injuries and illnesses was estimated to be just over $61 billion ”
To combat the increasing trend of worker injury and illness, the newly launched Elite ‘S’ operator console is creating a stir throughout the industry and achieving great success among both Blue Chip corporations and smaller independent operators. The attraction could be attributed to its sophisticated design and operation and its quick return on investment, but the driving factor is its high impact on operator health and safety. Overwhelmingly positive feedback throughout the industry has “reports of decreases in sick leave, improved morale, higher productivity and an overall increase in many key performance indicators.”
Easily adjusted at the touch of a button with digital height readout, the Elite S can be raised or lowered to an accurate sitting or standing height. With arguably the largest range of movement on the market, you would be hard pressed to find a group of operators the Elite ‘S’ doesn’t adapt to.
Innovative Ergonomic Technology
Utilising high-quality, modern technologies throughout the console, the true genius is inside the lifting technology – the trademark behind every ActivConsole. Incredibly reliable Danish built LINAK® actuators have been a mainstay of the ActivConsole range since its first height adjustable workstation was produced in 1992 and have been used worldwide for over 40 years. Boasting an incredible performance and safety record, the new range of LINAK® actuators in the Elite ‘S’ set it apart from its class and offer operators a first-hand glimpse at top notch ergonomics. Offering anti-collision software as standard in its four leg variant and an incredible lifting capacity and height range on its two leg design, the Elite ‘S’ tailors itself to its workplace and its operators.

Floor mounted storage compartments offer increased hardware capacity and an innovative latch release system ensures your hardware stays locked away from dust and unauthorised access.
