Feel the Difference with Smart Ergonomics

Dentistry is a physically demanding profession, with repetitive reaching, twisting, and turning that can lead to chronic back and neck pain. But it doesn't have to be that way.

A-dec dental equipment is designed with smart ergonomics that help reduce pain and strain while keeping everything you need at your fingertips. So you can work more comfortably and more efficiently.

From the thin backrest and headrest on the A-dec 500 dental chair to the precise maneuverability of the A-dec LED dental light, A-dec's ergonomic dental equipment helps you maintain good form and posture. It's a difference you can feel.

Unsurpassed Access

An ultra-thin backrest and slim-profile headrest allow you to work in a comfortable position–legs under the patient, elbows relaxed at your side.

The ergonomic baseplate design lets you roll your stool closer to the patient for better access to the oral cavity.

Moves to Meet Your Needs

Dental equipment should move to meet your needs, not the other way around. That’s why the A-dec 500 dental chair is designed to accommodate the widest range of doctor heights. It elevates your patient high and low, allowing you to work in comfort.

The swivel lets you position yourself behind the patient in limited space, while the armrests pivot forward so you can work without obstruction.

I would highly recommend the A-dec 500 dental chair for unsurpassed patient comfort, ergonomics and innovative functions.

A-dec 500 Continental Delivery System: Unparalleled Ergonomics

Engineered to eliminate reaching and twisting, the A-dec 500 Continental delivery system delivers unparalleled ergonomics.

All your accessories are right at your fingertips, in a design that eliminates pull-back on the handpieces for less fatigue. Even electrics feel lighter, so you can work more comfortably.

Stay Positioned and Focused

A pivoting, central control head actually directs instruments toward the oral cavity. This makes it easy to retrieve (and return) handpieces without shifting your focus or your posture. And it’s the only design that allows you to use the same grip with handpieces and syringes.

A-dec Continental delivery systems reduce body movement, keep your focus on the oral cavity, and ease tubing drag with a near-weightless feel.

A-dec 500 Assistant’s Instrumentation: Everything at Your Fingertips

Accommodating your assistant is key since most procedures begin and end with the assistant.

With the A-dec 500 12 o’clock assistant’s instrumentation and an A-dec treatment console, your assistant can quickly and efficiently access everything needed during a procedure. Every detail is designed for an advanced range of motion and ultimate comfort.

Easy to Customize

With so many positioning options, assistants can adjust the A‑dec assistant's instrumentation to their individual needs. The round, height-adjustable worksurface easily moves left to right and pivots horizontally.

Pivoting holders let your assistant position the syringe, vacuum instruments, and other devices where they're the most comfortable and accessible.

A-dec 500 Dental Stool: Ultimate Comfort and Support

A-dec dental stools have long been considered the gold standard in comfort. Now, they’re even better.

A-dec 500 dental stools feature a dynamic seating system with unique “performance zones” that mold to the shape of the body.

Designed for Dentistry

Using pressure-mapping technology, A-dec engineered an ultra-comfortable, ergonomic stool to enhance the way dentists practice. The flexible, body-contouring design is composed of four individual zones that address specific physiological needs.

The A-dec 500 dental stool allows for ample blood flow to the legs, while setting up the lower lumbar for a proper, healthy torso position. Optional swing-out armrests allow you to rest your arms while working in the oral cavity. The result is all-day comfort.

A-dec Lever Foot Control:
Meticulous Control, Minimal Movement

Enjoy a foot lever control designed to encourage an ergonomic “athletic stance” for better posture. With just a slight, natural shift of the foot, the A-dec lever foot control delivers precise modulation of your electric handpiece motor speed. Once you’ve reached the desired speed, you can rest your foot flat on the floor and continue working in a more relaxed state.

Keep Your Focus

The A-dec lever foot control is designed with straightforward left- or right-lever movement, so you can intuitively switch between wet and dry cuts without taking your eyes off the patient. It’s never been easier to stay focused and in total control.
