Crescent Knee Support Pad Es

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota--Crescent Products has announced introduction of a new knee support pad, which is part of its Bodyrest System.

With a longer, smoother upward slope, the knee support allows a patient’s legs to rest in a more natural position to relieve pressure on the lower back and hips. The new knee support also improves stability and alignment of a patient in the dental chair.

The knee support is designed to be used with Crescent's Bodyrest System, a four-pad system consisting of the trademarked Crescent bodyrest headrest, backrest, knee support, and chair pad. All four pads work together to align patients for their omfort, as well as create ergonomic positioning of the patient to reduce strain for dentists and hygienists. The supports works well for cosmetic and sedation dentistry.

While the knee support relieves pressure on the lower back and hips, the headrest supports the patient’s neck and allows the head to tilt backwards and for the jaw to naturally turn up in an open-forward position. The backrest supports the patient’s lumbar region and fills the natural gap formed between the patient’s back and the chair. The chair pad cushions and conforms to the patient’s body, relieving pressure points and relaxing the patient.

Priced at less than $500, the Crescent Bodyrest System is an option to spending thousands of dollars on an ergonomically designed dental chair. The system fits in an existing dental chair, and, because it correctly positions patients in the dental chair, the system also helps prevent progression toward chronic pain or potential injury to dentists and hygienists.

Crescent Bodyrest pads are available in black, gray, beige, and teal, as well as in two new colors: navy and spruce.
