ergonomic features found in well-designed patient chair and dental delivery systems are of paramount importance to the comfort and health of the dentist and the dental team. When a dentist buys equipment that fails to incorporate proper ergonomic design, they only have 2 choices: to live with it and suffer the associated musculoskeletal discomfort and/or injuries; or, to buy new equipment and try to sell the old. Neither is an attractive option. It makes more sense to do the research and invest in equipment that will benefit your health and extend your career right from the start!
According to a variety of international studies, figures of chronic pain can be as high as 87 per cent in dentists and up to 96 per cent in dental hygienists. The good news is, owners appear more aware today of the importance of taking care of their own and employee’s physical wellbeing in an attempt to avoid and alleviate problems relating to neck, back, arm and wrist pain.

less reaching – less twisting – less tiring – least stressful design
“the counterbalance and positioning features of the whip arm system are unique to Fimet dental units”
“If you have to change the focus of your eyes, [between looking at the patient’s mouth and finding the instruments] it is very tiring, especially when you see so many patients each day. With the whip arm you know the instruments are always there laid out on the tray and are spring-loaded on the arm so you pull them towards you. It is easy to use and the instruments are light weight in the hand. With the hoses held higher in the whip arm, weight is taken off the instrument (there is no pulling down at the wrist from the hanging hose) and, if dropped, it will not reach the floor”.

“I can’t really imagine how much difference that has made over the years in time and ease.”
“One reason for buying the Fimet chair was that the instrument arm can swing across to the dental assistant’s side. I can still talk to the patient about their treatment while the assistant cleans up and the patient is oblivious to it.”

low 12v system to the chair motors provides absolute electrical safety to patients and the dental team. Positioning of the drills to the assistants side of the chair provides more room for the dental team to safely maneuver around the chair clear of equipment hazards and obstructions and provides safe and clear access for patients to enter and exit the chair. Wireless foot control provides added safety from accidental tripping hazard over cords on the floor. Compact design is ideal for areas with limited space.
