How Dental Professionals Should Properly Research the Best Options for New Seating
If you read our previous blog post about why dental professionals should consider new seating, then you know just how important it is to have quality seating to alleviate and prevent pain from occurring in your back, neck, and shoulders. Once you determine that you need new seating, you will enter the research phase of your search for a new dental chair, which is important to do thoroughly so you can feel assured that you are making the right choice. At Hager Worldwide, we encourage you to do your own research, and here are some suggested steps you might consider.
Problem Identification: What is Wrong with Your Current Seating?
First, you must determine what is wrong with your current seat. The most common issue that dentists and dental hygienists have with their current seating is the fact that it limits the number of angles and positions that they can comfortably sit in, causing them to adjust their posture constantly throughout the day. The more you do this, the more strain you are causing on your back, neck, shoulders, and other parts of your body. This strain can lead to chronic pain, trouble sleeping, and other health issues. To make matters worse, this can and invariably does affect life outside of work.
Resource Exploration: How Can You Find Your Next Dental Chair?
Next, you need to research a new seating option that combats this issue. Conventional seating options typically force your spine into a compressed “C” shape, which is not natural to the curvature of the spine and is the reason why conventional seating leads so many people to experience back problems. According to Dr. Bethany Valachi, 40-60% of dental professionals suffer from work-related musculoskeletal issues, such as low back pain. Based on our research, we suggest a seating option that allows the spine to maintain its natural “S” shape, making it possible for the dental professional to work from a variety of angles and positions while maintaining perfect sitting posture.
Supplier Selection: Which Supplier has the Features that You Need?
Now that you have identified the issues with your current seating and the requirements for your new seating, you need to find out which suppliers have what you need. One option is obviously the Bambach Saddle Seat, allowing your back to maintain an “S” shape qt various angles and positions possible like never before. As many as 80% of dental professionals suffer from lower back, neck, and shoulder pain. Even if that pain is not work-related, it can still affect the pain that is felt at work. There are different styles of this saddle seat, but they all still offer the same benefits for your spine.
