The ERGO mobil base reading and writing stands converts any Schweizer ERGO-Lux MP mobil or ERGO-Lux i mobil hand magnifiers into a stand magnifier without compromising image quality. Snap the pocket ERGO magnifier into the stand, and the exact focal distance is set for the magnification strength of a particular magnifier. This optional mobile base must be purchased for the specific strength of a given magnifier because it sets the working distance for that power. This allows the user to place the magnifier in the stand directly on the reading material, and not struggle to find the correct working distance.
Featured here is the reading stand for the 16D / 5X Schweizer handheld magnifier. It rests flat on the paper to provide hands free reading in a stand magnifier form. It can only be used with either Schweizer 5X ERGO magnifier. The 5X stand can also be used in an upright position to allow for hands free magnification in front of the magnifying lens.
