About Dainoff Designs, Inc.  
A functional, heavy-duty document holder was needed for a scientific investigation of the effectiveness of ergonomic principles (see Scientific Data). The search for such a document holder was fruitless, so Marilyn Hecht Dainoff, one of the investigators, with the help of Paul Cooker and Klaus Thiel, invented the Standard Atlas. The enthusiastic response to the new copy holder led to the decision to patent, manufacture and market this and other document holders.

Whoever designed the Atlas copy holder has struggled with real world work.

Several years ago, Marilyn teamed up with Richard Prigozen of Creative Fabricators, Inc. of Dayton, Ohio to design a very simple, contemporary book and copy holder, the Atlas Ultra.

Marilyn Dainoff founded Dainoff Designs, Inc. in 1994. As a certified professional ergonomist, her core design values embody functionality, simplicity and usability. Thus Dainoff Designs' copy holders are unique, combining sound ergonomic principles with a commitment to the needs of people who use paper documents for work or leisure. The principles of universal design are equally important: Atlases have enough adjustability and sturdiness to be used by people with disabilities.

The company seeks to have customers understand fully the ergonomic principles involved, by providing ergonomic guidelines with each document holder.

Known as "Atlas" document holders for their strength, the entire line provides incredible durability, adjustability, and ease of document management.
