Fimet Product Overview

dental support unit

With increasing compliance, regulatory and risk assessment for patient/staff safety and well-being in the workplace, investing in a treatment unit with supporting values can be one of the best considerations you can make.

e-Dentistry Treatment Unit   

Fast – Easy – Safe – Hygienic – Cost Efficient 

Change towards the digital era is an irreversible global trend. A simple “click” on the hygienic touch-free wireless foot control and instructions to the chair and rotary handpieces are rapid. Wireless infrastructure provides a safe working environment from hazardous  control  cords on the floor and modern signal technology supports reliability and low after purchase expense reputation.“The wireless foot control (I first thought was a bit gimmicky) is something that I would not work without now. No foot control cables getting in the way and I can position the control anywhere” Dr. Ian Wright B.D.Sc Port Kennedy, Australia.

Ergonomics

Instruments on the unit can be positioned so that everything is within easy reach in order to work efficiently. The whip hoses have zero pullback tolerance, are light weight and are void of locking devices which makes everything you do, that much easier. One of our clients has been particularly pleased with these features quoting ‘’My favorite feature has been the zero resistance from pull back with the hoses (especially after breaking and weakening my right wrist 4 years ago)’’ Dr. Dina Papas B.D.Sc F.R.A.C.D.S.

Power Drill 

Constant torque to the working handpieces is essential. F1 innovative delivery system handpiece control block supports constant and precise supply of essential air/water services to the working drills. F1 delivery system component has no moving or wearing parts (virtually eliminating disruptive air/water leaks effecting drill performance) and is made from metal free high-tech corrosive resistant material including Teflon. Regular and costly after purchase expense for maintenance kits supporting optimum drill functionality, is not required. F1 innovative delivery system handpiece control block is supported by industry leading 10 year parts warranty.

Workflow

“I can’t really imagine how much difference this 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. At the time, Fimet was the only chair manufacturer to offer this feature. With other units, the assistant must come to the dentist’s side to begin cleaning and would have to wait until the patient leaves. The swing-away arm also allows for easy access in and out of the chair.” READ MORE: https://www.empiredental.com.au/home/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Fimet-Case-Study-Dr.-Ian-Renton.pdf/

Flexibility

Fimet chairs provide unparalleled range of adjustments enabling operator to support patients in a wider range of positions. Chair height is 95cm supporting stand up procedures and low 45cm and adjustable knee-brake option is very useful for consultations and  for aged and medically complex patients to enter and exit the chair.

Research 

Over its 19-year life, the Fimet chair has required minimal repairs.“I’m very happy with this one,” he says. “Before I bought it, I spent lots of time looking at every unit at a dental exhibition – three days sitting in each of them, driving people nuts. Afterwards, I made a spread sheet with the pros and cons of each and that’s how I came to the conclusion about Fimet. It had more pluses than the others.” READ MORE: https://www.empiredental.com.au/testimonial/
