Well-being influences the quality of life of every individual. In the workplace, too, it should not be underestimated.
Today, more than ever, the awareness of the strategic impact that ergonomics has on daily work has become a prerogative of many realities: both in the production field, concerning the commitment of companies in designing products that can balance the relationship between man and work, and, for the end-user, as part of the purchase of solutions that ensure the highest possible well-being to their team.
With the aim of preserving the health of the musculoskeletal system and preventing potential discomfort in the short and long term together with the consequent impact on the stress and overall well-being of the users involved, Tecnodent products are designed to promote the achievement of a correct ergonomic posture during treatment, while ensuring high levels of comfort and smoothness of movement.
The work approach of a right-handed dentist differs from the approach of a left-handed dentist, since the former sits more frequently in, or around, an 11 o’clock position, while the latter prefers a 1 o’clock position. Moreover, depending on the treatment, the dentist may need to move: in the upper quadrants, for example, indirect vision may be required, which, on the contrary, is never adopted in surgery.
When analyzing proper working ergonomics for right-handed and left-handed dentists, one must first take into account the different patient treatment positions between right- and left-handed dentists. For this reason, the symmetry of Tecnodent products allows both right- and left-handed users to operate without effort and limitations in their freedom of movement, thus ensuring an ideal approach to the patient.
In fact, symmetry occurs when there is an orderly correspondence of shape or position between the parts of an object or between the elements of an arrangement. A dental chair that meets these characteristics offers numerous benefits, including ease of use, smoothness, and ergonomics for both left- and right-handed operators.
There are many instances where a chair designed and created for a right-handed dentist can jeopardize the posture and performance of a left-handed dentist sharing the same equipment. On the other hand, opting for a symmetrical chair will allow both dentists to perform comfortably, taking into account the needs of both categories. Thanks to versatile solutions, such as the independent symmetrical chairs proposed by Tecnodent, even in the case of turnover between several dentists in the same practice, each operator will be able to find his/her optimal treatment comfort.
Considering that the percentage of left-handed people in the world is around 10%, it is clear that a large number of professionals every day face potential problems related to a working posture that is not properly ergonomic. The choice of a Tecnodent symmetrical chair will be, among other things, the ideal solution for medium-large dental practices where several operators use the same unit.
Thanks to their symmetry designed to guarantee perfect workplace ergonomics, Tecnodent chairs and stools allow dentists to easily change position without having to lower their treatment standards.
It is also a far-sighted investment, since anyone who buys a symmetrical chair, in case of possible resale, will be able to not care whether the future user is right-handed or left-handed.
The same philosophy can be found also in the Tecnodent ergonomic stools.
One of the most interesting models is certainly the Ergo A, usually used by both operators and assistants, characterized by the rotation of the backrest both clockwise and counterclockwise, allowing an ambidextrous use for both right-handed and left-handed operators.
Ergonomics, comfort, and quality are the three distinctive features of Tecnodent products which, thanks to their symmetry, are the optimal equipment to meet the needs of each professional.
