There isn't time for discomfort in today's fast-paced, agile working environment. M8.1, part of the groundbreaking new monitor arm line at Humanscale, immediately improves the convenience, safety, and efficiency of every workspace. Completely compliant with both standard desks and sit/stand workstations, M8.1 meets a range of configuration specifications for single monitors from 6 to 28 pounds, or dual monitors up to 12 pounds each with optional crossbar support.

Featuring technologies such as the proprietary Weight-Compensating Spring Technology by Humanscale and the Smart Stop feature, M8.1 allows the simplicity and versatility required for the changing workplaces today.

M8.1 encourages a healthier working posture, generates more available screen space, and helps to keep an office free of clutters. Thanks to Fast Release joints, which instantly snap together for a stable and sturdy fit, it offers easy, simple installation and industry-leading versatility.
