[Athen] ADA compliant height adjustable lecterns

Maybe a small-ish adjustable desk would work.

I have one in our training lab that I love. Bigger than a podium so there's
plenty of room for laptops, reference books, coffee mugs, etc. But not too
big. Mine has power to adjust it, as well as plug in devices and USB items.

Easily adjustable for sitting as well as standing, and anywhere in between.

As someone who has taught in computer classrooms for 30+ years, I can tell
you that I hate traditional podiums, especially those without enough room
for a mouse attached to the laptop, are tilted so that laptops fall off the
podium, don't give me a place to store my training materials/books, or have
lips along the edge that interfere with the instructor's arm and wrist when
using the computer.

Hi all,

I was hoping someone could share with me if your campus utilizes ADA
compliant height adjustable lecterns. Are there specific regulations
available to guide a discussion on my campus that is being planned through
our IT department?

Thanks for anything you can share.
