Wheelchair Access Dental

Our wheelchair accessible dental chair is the first of its kind in British Columbia. It is made by a leading dental equipment manufacturer. It is designed to make it simpler, safer and more convenient for patients with reduced mobility to access dental procedures. Its primary function is conveying dental patients from the reception area through to the dental clinic treatment area and back again in a comfortable and safe manner. The chair’s innovative design reduces discomfort by eliminating the need for lifting or handling the patient. This chair will greatly benefit patients who have problems walking even short distances. The extended width of this seat gives full patient support and weight-bearing capability of up to 800lbs(60st)(363kg).

The wheelchair-accessible dental chair offers full support to all upper body soft tissue and limbs as well as being wide enough to give full base comfort and mobility. All the surfaces of the dental chair and its upholstery are antimicrobial. It also has 50mm foam cushions over the arm-rests for optimized comfort and safety. The seat height is 500mm to allow easy access to patients of all heights. The chair can be reclined to 45 degrees to give the patient a sense of added security during transportation, this also means that dental procedures can be performed properly. For increased accessibility for all patients, the chair can be maneuvered forward 10 degrees to assist patients when they are sitting into it and getting up from it.
