Midmark Introduces the New Elevance Dental Chair

July 29, 2010
A breakthrough in patient comfort, premium styling, and patient access for dentists.
VERSAILLES, Ohio – Midmark Corporation announces the availability of its newest chair for the dental office, the Elevance™ Dental Chair. Years of research and development yielded a patient chair that is a genuine departure from any chair on the market today. With its unique Cantilever Forward™ design, advanced hydraulic system, and the fully integrated heat and massage option, the Elevance chair delivers sophisticated styling, optimal patient access and exceptional patient comfort without compromise. Unobstructed access to the patient’s oral cavity is crucial for a dentist to maximize performance and maintain an ergonomically correct working position. The Elevance chair has a unique backrest that is thin and narrow and cradles patients with exclusive integrated armrests for exceptional patient comfort and access. Providing an unprecedented range of travel, the Cantilever Forward design brings the patient to the clinician. Starting at a low seat height of 15 inches and extending to a seat height of 34 inches, the chair accommodates a broader range of operators and offers greater flexibility whether seated or standing. Patient comfort is one of the most important factors in creating an ideal patient experience and a calmer, less anxious patient. The Elevance chair has multiple features that were created to relax the patient and provide comfort during lengthy procedures. The sculpted headrest, advanced lower lumbar support, and two layers of foam offer luxurious comfort and increased support. The patented, integrated armrests and cast aluminum backrest deliver a comfortable secure patient regardless of size. The advanced hydraulic system delivers smooth, responsive operation while supporting patients weighing up to 450 pounds.The optional SerenEscape™ heat and massage system offers patients a serene escape with a relaxing massage, while lumbar heat warms muscles for further relaxation. The patient’s personal preferences are easily controlled with a remote hand control. Settings include high and low heat, three different massage patterns, and adjustable speed and intensity. Since the dental chair is usually the most noticeable element in the dental office, esthetics and presentation are integral. Midmark has expanded upholstery options to include limited seams ultraleather upholstery as well as two-toned plush upholstery that allow customers to personalize their office. Expanded upholstery color selection now includes 20 standard Ultraleather colors and 12 Royal Hampton seamless vinyl colors.
