According to the International Ergonomics Association“Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.” But what does all of this exactly mean?
This means that ergonomics should be taken seriously for it is the science that is looking out for the wellbeing of every doctor, nurse, and patient. If applied properly, ergonomics can certainly save medical practitioners years of pain due to sustained damage brought by improper position and posture, especially in dental clinics. Dental chairs are one of the dental equipment that has ergonomics embedded all over them, and when it comes to dental chair ergonomics, none can match what the Airel PE8+ has to offer.
The Brilliant Design of Airel PE8+ and the Absolute Comfort it Brings
Although it’s true that the Airel PE8+ was created with ergonomics in mind, it has plenty of other neat features to offer:
We’ll be taking a look at each one of them today and discover together what benefits they have in store for everyone.
The Airel PE8+ was made to suit everyone universally and it is designed to suit the various working positions that dentists have. Its instrument arms are functionally balanced, complete with an adjustable hanging tube instrument, and/or wide ranges of motion. It brings great comfort to the dentists, the dentist’s assistant, and most importantly, the patient.
No one has control over what kind of dominant hand they’ll be having. Though the majority of most humans who are right-handed is around 90%, according to Wikipedia, which means only 10% of humans are left-handed, the Airel PE8+ (with its ambidextrous layout) still caters both of them. It is in the perfect symmetry of the layout, regardless of the dentist’s and assistant’s positions, and only takes a couple of seconds to switch from right-hand to left-hand and vice versa.
Packed with dental chair ergonomics embedded in its design, the Airel PE8+ have head-down and head-up instruments, lateral flexibility, and instrument mobility, making it easier and safer for the dentist to a get a hold of them.
The Airel PE8+ can support USB storage devices, capable of loading preset programs and settings that different dentists prefer. Its display is pretty unique as well, being fully airtight for maximum hygiene, having control over the mix induction motor, the piezoelectric scaler, and fibre-optic turbine.
Airel PE8+ does not lack its environmental functionalities as well, having a removable, modular, and optional spittoon that’s ambidextrously attached to the back of the chair. Its filter and suction support is easily accessible too, giving dentists the capability to recover items that were sucked up accidentally, an easy-to-maintain suction system, has two selectable suction cannulae, and polycarbonate keypads that can easily be cleaned.
This is where the Airel PE8+ gives unmatched comfort for patients with its shape memory upholstery, wide and narrow backrest, and a headrest equipped with pneumatic assistance.
There aren’t a lot of dental chairs out there that are as flexible as the Airel PE8+ when it comes to its use. Its hanging tube instruments can be adjusted from 2-8 instruments, instruments on balanced arms can accommodate up to 2-8 instruments and its easy-to-use, the wall-mounted hanging tube instruments might be separate from the chair, but is still capable of using all of its features, and it can even be completely adjusted to transform into a unit that’s dedicated solely to orthodontics.
Hygiene is one of the top priorities for any type of clinic, whether they’re medical or dental ones. The Airel PE8+ uses 3 tools for hygienic purposes which are:
• Calbépuls – used to cleanse instruments via water loaded with Calbenium and a pressurised jet of air.
• Aspisept – a suction tube cleansing system that utilises Calbenium.
• IGN – an essential solution mixed with Calbenium that easily achieves the “zero germs at all times,” motto easily and is used for treating spray water and cleaning dental units.
When purchasing a dental chair, it’s important to double-check if the level of dental chair ergonomics embedded in its design is good enough. Don’t forget to examine its other features and gauge if whether they suit the needs of the dental clinic.
