Abstract

A workstation holding one or more electronic devices, e.g., a display, keyboard, or the like, can be mounted on a structure, e.g., a wall, using an articulating arm assembly including one or more arms. The one or more arms can be rotatingly coupled to the structure on one end and a work surface can be coupled to the other end. At least one of the one or more arms can be height adjustable. The workstation can rotate about a horizontal axis between a use configuration and a storage configuration. The one or more arms can be configured to translate the workstation between a contracted orientation and extended orientation. The height adjustable arm can include a counterbalance mechanism to counter a weight of the one or more components coupled to the workstation. A tension of the one or more springs contained in the counterbalance mechanism can be adjustable.

Abstract

Systems and methods for monitoring and management of an electronic device are discussed here. An authentication request is received from a user for access to an electronically secured compartment of an electronic device. Authentication data is obtained from the user. An authentication request that includes a device identifier for the electronically secured compartment and the authentication data is transmitted to a cloud-based authentication service. Access to the electronically secured compartment is provided upon receipt of an indication of an association between the user and the electronically secured compartment from the cloud-based service provider.

Abstract

The present disclosure relates to a workstation and a technique to automatically configure the workstation. The workstation can be used to perform various tasks including but not limited to medication delivery, collection of medical records, patient care, manufacturing operations, and others. The workstation can be configured by the user depending on the tasks to be performed using the workstation. Various sensors (e.g., hall effect sensors, optical sensors, or the like) can be coupled to the workstation, and sensor operators (e.g., magnets, color coded strips, or the like) can be coupled to the modules. By aligning sensor operators with sensors when modules are coupled to the workstation, a configuration (e.g., size, shape, location, or the like) of modules can be automatically detected by the workstation controller. The controller of the workstation can then adapt to perform certain tasks (e.g., lock/unlock drawers, or the like) depending on the detected configuration of modules.

Abstract

Embodiments of the invention provide, among other things, computing carts with a storage compartment having a sliding work surface that selectively provides access to at least a portion of a storage space within the storage compartment. In some cases the storage space is defined at least in part by a storage chassis and a sliding work surface positioned over the storage chassis, with the sliding work surface at least in part defining a top extent of the storage space. In some cases a latch mechanism releasably maintains a sliding work surface in a closed position and allows movement to an open position when released. Some embodiments include a lock mechanism to secure a sliding work surface in a closed position to prevent access to a storage space. Strengthening mechanisms may also be provided to strengthen the storage compartment in the open and/or closed positions.
