We didn’t design our imaging desks in a vacuum here at Xybix. We visited reading rooms, checked out the equipment and talked to radiologists to learn about must-have, nice-to-have and simply delightful features. Then we designed those features into our imaging desks while providing a few cool touches of our own. Did we cover all the bases? We think so, and we tell you all about it in a series of 1-minute videos that provide answers to common questions.
Sitting still has never been my thing. I’ve worked in sales, I’ve been a professional speaker and I dabble in local theater. None of these jobs involve 8 to 12 hours tied to a desk and staring at monitors. So I didn’t immediately appreciate the Xybix focus on ergonomics. I loved the sit-to-stand concept—which gives me the chance to practice my tap dancing under the desk—but the other ergonomic features didn’t hit home until the Carson family described them in terms of preventing pain.
We’ve been doing this for 30 years at Xybix. Does that make me feel old? Why yes, yes it does. It also makes me feel wise because I’ve learned a lot about ergonomic sit-to-stand consoles and how they enhance the health, happiness and productivity of dispatchers, who are literally the first responders to calls for help. I’ve learned what’s important to 911 centers in terms of features, quality and service. And I know how much that all costs.
Remember way back in 2016 when the iPhone discontinued the headphone jack? “Wires are so over,” it seemed to pronounce to all of us busy untangling those white headphone wires. “Wireless is the future.”

“Because every day is Children’s Day!”
That’s what parents say when kids ask, “Why is there Mother’s Day and Father’s Day but no Children’s Day.”
Since 1970, we’ve also had Earth’s Day, every April 22, to demonstrate support for protecting the environment. The big question here is this: “Why isn’t every day Earth Day?” I mean, we all have to live here, Elon Musk nonwithstanding.
You know the 80/20 Rule? You wear 20% of your clothes 80% of the time. You see 20% of your friends 80% of the time. You use 20% of the tools at your disposal 80% of the time.
Yes, sometimes black-and-white will capture the moment so nicely, but the reality is, we’ve been thriving on color since the 1960s. Color TV! Color photos! Color movies! And now all our digital devices record and relate the world in millions of colors.
We Americans love color for how it looks. Amber waves of grain. Purple mountain majesties. And we love color for the meaning. Red light stop. Green light go. We love how color make us feel. Calming blues, optimistic yellows, disciplined grays.
What we don’t love is selecting colors. In a world where Benjamin Moore alone sells 150+ shades of white, how do you even know where to start? And even if you’re able to pick the perfect white paint, what about the furniture, artwork and accent colors? Today’s muted gray looks are 10 years away from looking as dated as the teal and mauves of the 1980s.
