A dental chair is built to support patients during all types of procedures – from routine teeth cleanings and X-rays to root canals and oral surgery. The chair needs to be able to recline into a number of positions and interface with the rest of the operatory. It also must allow dentists to position themselves easily from any angle around the chair and be able to work on patients in different positions, depending on what procedure they are performing.
Many musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) that affect dentists and their assistants, like carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, neck pain and lower back problems are directly related to how they sit and work in the dental chair. These problems often stem from poor patient chair design that requires a doctor to hunch over the patient, or chairs that cannot be positioned low enough for a comfortable working position. The ability to swivel the patient chair and move the headrest to the desired position helps minimize these issues.
The new Forest 3900 chair from DENTALEZ is designed to be ergonomic for both patients and doctors, offering a range of features that make it easy to adjust the height of the seat, footrest, armrests and headrest. It features an articulating headrest that moves into various positions with the press of a button, as well as a lumbar knee and thigh support. This ensures that the patient is in a comfortable position throughout the entire procedure.
It is upholstered in soft, durable Ultraleather, with 17 colors and dual color stitching to match the look of any office. It has an advanced operating light with LED indicator lights that show which handpiece is active, eliminating the need to turn the air on and off when switching between different instruments.
