Special Needs Dental Chairs

What is a special needs dental chair?

Special needs dental chairs are designed for people with weight issues. Special needs refer to anything made with a disabled person in mind and their needs being at the forefront. Special needs seating is commonly used in hospitals and dental clinics because it affords the user more room and comfort.

A special needs dental chair is heavier, wider, and has larger armrests than other chairs. By design, these items provide both comfort and ease of use for disabled patients and medical professionals. Perfect for those who need extra support.

Understanding disabled patients’ needs.

Disabled Patients are usually wheelchair users and require seating that will provide support and comfort for their posture and movement whilst seated in their wheelchairs (which are normally heavy due to their bulkiness). However, standard dental chairs, although being designed to support the patient in a seated position, are terribly unsuitable when the patient is seated in a wheelchair as they are often OK when the patient is seated in the chair but not when they are sitting in the wheelchair.


Easier patient management & safety.

The mobility issues associated with special needs and disabled patients means that their needs are not the same as other patients. If a patient requires more assistance with mobility, there is a greater chance of an injury occurring to their carer. Speciality equipment and space are needed to provide safe care require adapting the regular room environment. The rising number of disabled admissions is a continuing challenge for healthcare facilities who must provide dignified care that is both effective and safe for patients and providers.

What is the mechanism by which special needs dental chairs operate?

special needs dental chairs operate in a similar fashion to traditional treatment chairs, though there are a few differences. Most importantly, they provide more space and support for the user. Having more legroom is an important feature of these chairs because it allows for a greater range of motion. The chairs often come with a headrest that can be adjusted for the taller patients.

Transporting Patients

Our range of special needs benches and chairs are designed to be wheeled to be moved around easily.

This allows nurses and staff members to provide care without moving the patient. By using a recliner model special needs dental chair, patients can get up from the chair without help easily.

Manual handling of heavy patients presents a challenge partly due to individual factors and the lack of space and equipment for safe care, transportation, and treatment. Our products occupy minimal floor space, can be folded away for storage, and keep patients comfortable. Because all of our products have internal batteries for operation, there are no trailing wires to consider.
