Since shoulder/upper-back tension is an issue for me, I’ve been considering a solution that provides arm rests. But since I want to use it with a standing desk, chair arm rests are not an option. My latest crazy idea is to use an swiveling arm rest with a pole sticking out with the Model 01 on a ball unit on the end.
I’m thinking of using an Ergorest with the long arm arm pad (left side of below image; right side is short arm pad) and long arm.
Then using something like the RAM Mount components (thanks @leoj3n) to attach the Model 01 sticking out on a pole with a camera mount on a 360° ball mount on the end of the pole. I would need to somehow (still thinking on that) attach the pole to the bottom of the arm pad since it needs to swivel (as shown in this video) with the arm pad. It can’t attach to the top arm of the Ergorest.
For the end mount, I’ll use the RAM-B-202AU camera mount:
For the arm, I deciding between the RAP-BB-230-14-201U
and the RAP-BB-201-14U
The first one would give me double ball joints and a bit more flexibility, which may be overkill and may result in the keyboard height level being off. Either way, I’ll likely need to shorten the pole a bit. In the end though, I’m thinking a flat bar would be easier to mount to the arm pad. So I may have to make my own arm and mount the ball joint to it.
So basically, the idea is to create something like this:
The big outstanding question is will there be too much weight hanging off the Ergoarm for it to support it. I’m worried it will be.
Again, this is still in the brainstorming stage.
