Variable Height Arm for Tablets

The GCX VHM-T variable height arm is the only medical-grade support arm specifically designed for tablet-sized devices.

GCX launched its next edition of variable height arm solutions with the VHM-T arm for tablet-sized devices. This new solution provides a durable and ergonomic medical-grade mounting solution for tablets made by Apple®, Samsung®, Microsoft® and others as part of healthcare organizations’ strategies to improve patient experience.

The VHM-T is available in two main configurations – with and without an extension – and is designed to install into the ubiquitous GCX channel profile found on many GCX mounting solutions and in hospitals worldwide. The arm provides a 75mm VESA-mounting capability to accommodate both tablets with the VESA mounting pattern and those secured in a mountable enclosure, including enclosures designed and manufactured by GCX. Finally, to serve our customers globally, the VHM-T is CE marked, REACH/RoHS compliant, and designed and manufactured under our ISO 13485 certified quality system.
