Units can be fitted into the tops or fronts of arms or into seat tops and there is a wide choice of options from concealed units that can be folded down when not in use, to simple open-faced modules. Sockets include power (UK as standard, with worldwide options available on some models), data, USB and wireless charging, and full multimedia options depending upon your choice of module.
