The comfort of the professional dentist is vital for the development of treatments and their effectiveness, transmitting to the patient safety and firmness.
In recent years, in dental clinics, stools have become more important due to the resulting benefits for the musculoskeletal system.
The pain from back injuries caused by bad postures could affect the professional work of the dentist and as a consequence the client may notice during their treatment.
Ergonomic stolls in dentistry are increasingly popular due to the benefits, which is supported by research and the positive impact they have on the musculoskeletal system. The design of this type of stool is far from the traditional type, but there has been a noticeable decrease in dentistry fatigue.
What are the benefits of acquiring an ergonomic stool?
- The stools with adjustable height allows the dentist to easily reach the patient, making treatments more comfortable for both the patient and the dentist.
- Allows you to maintain a neutral spinal posture , since you are not completely seated or standing.
- Diaphragmatic breathing is improved.
- Facilitates proper movement of the hips, rather than bending at the waist
- Facilitating a correct lumbar curve results in a more neutral head posture avoiding neck pain and cervical problems.
The saddle-type stools have a flat, triangle-shaped seat that keeps the pelvis in a neutral position. When buying a stool of this type, the correct contour of the pelvic stool should be taken into account, as choosing a stool that is too narrow for the pelvis can be uncomfortable and cause compression; similarly, if the stool is too wide it can cause an uncomfortable expansion in the hips. Men should take into account when choosing one of these stools, that it is highly cushioned or that it is a divided seat to reduce compression and discomfort in the peritoneal area.
As for muscular problems, the saddle reduces the effort caused in the lower back. Although it cases the opposite effect in the area of the abdominals in which you end up exrerting a greater effort. the effort suffered in the abdominals could be eliminated if a saddle with a backrest is chosen, which makes it possible to reduce abdominal activity.
A good option to consider when choosing a stool for your clinic is the use of armrests that relieve pressure and tiredness in the muscles of your arms.
