figures of chronic pain can be as high as 87 per cent in dentists and up to 96 per cent in dental hygienists
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. Credits and free gifts offered by commercial supermarkets can be tempting and can also be a distraction from health and wellbeing values, 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!
least stressful design
decrease the stress, strain and discomfort of providing dental care. Everything within easy reach, 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”.

The compact design of the F1 ARCUS treatment unit provides investors with a modern, safe and uncluttered treatment room setting. Patients can enter/exit the chair clear of equipment obstructions and wireless foot control provides added safety from accidental tripping risk from hazardous control cords on the floor. Low 12 v voltage to the chair motors provides absolute electrical safety and innovative positioning of the drills to the assistants side (out of direct sight of patients) supports a relaxed treatment room setting.
“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.”
