As a profession, dentistry includes repetitive reaching, twisting and turning that can lead to chronic back and neck pain. However, a good set of core equipment will enable and encourage comfortable patient positioning and provide excellent access to the patient’s oral cavity. Learn about the ergonomics of dental stools and patient chairs from A-dec.
When a person wears a glove that restricts movement, he or she must exert more muscle effort to perform tasks, thereby increasing the risk of strain, which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.
One way to promote health and safety in the dental setting is through sound office design and the right equipment. A-dec has the ergonomic equipment dental practices need to provide a safe and healthy work environment.
