Innovative, Ergonomic Solutions for you Surgery
Dental Chairs are one of the largest investments of any practice. They are the real workhorses of any surgery and need to be robust enough to withstand the demands of today's demand.
History suggests that an American dentist, Josiah Flagg, created the first adjustable dental chair in the late 18th century, adapting a wooden chair by adding an instrument tray on one side, as well as a movable headrest. Over the years the dental chair evolved and, perhaps most excitingly, in the 20th century, the first-ever dental chair unit came into being, incorporating air, water, gas, and electricity into one handy piece of equipment.
At this point, while patients were sitting more comfortably than ever before, for the most part, dentists were still standing – and their backs and necks were not thanking them for it. By 1958, however, John Naughton had created a chair with an articulated seat and back, which marked the introduction of what we know call four-handed dentistry.
Today, we have fully embraced the use of a dental chair unit that is comfortable for both patient and user and incorporates some incredible benefits that reflect issues such as need, convenience, infection control requirements, and environmental consideration. Sometimes, however, the extensive choice of treatment centres and brands available can feel overwhelming.
