Electric legs will give your desk a lift

For the executive who has almost everything, Electro Mechanical Systems is offering range of electrically powered telescopic pillars, that will lift or lower a desk or another item of furniture through a height of 600mm.

The Telesmart pillars provide "a complete ergonomic solution", according to EMS. The pillars consist of a pair of extruded aluminium tubes that slide within each other. DC motors are used to provide a lifting capacity of 1,500N at a speed of 17-21mm per minute.

To make connections easy, a power supply is built into the pillars, which can be used individually or in parallel. EMS can provide match desk-mounted or foot switches
