Good ergonomics are essential when choosing dental equipment. The reason is simple. Proper ergonomics encourage healthy posture, which is critical to avoiding body strain and pain.

Here’s a little something to try: Sit with your torso completely twisted. Take your right arm and move it horizontally across your body. Tilt your head to the right. Now stay this way for eight hours, while repairing a watch in your lap. That’s the kind of strain dental professionals place on their bodies every day, caring for patients—strain that can cause injuries or disorders that affect how the body moves.
