New dentist and assistant models now available.

VERSAILLES, Ohio--Midmark Corporation has announced the availability of new Midmark operator stools that include dentist and assistant stools.

The Midmark operator stools are not only engineered to deliver styling and comfort, but they are also ergonomically refined to address musculoskeletal pain that is common in dentistry. The system offers a contoured seat with forward tilt to improve weight distribution, increase overall comfort, and promote a more balanced posture.

The waterfall front edge design reduces pressure on the back of thighs, also enhancing comfort. Multiple seat sizes and seat heights paired with unsurpassed adjustability, allow the dental team to better personalize its seating solution.

"Since the introduction of the Midmark UltraComfort Chair in 2001, Midmark has built a reputation for designing high-performing, great-looking operatory products," said Tim Forlow, Midmark product manager, dental products. "The new Midmark operator stools continue this tradition, offering not only premium styling and comfort, but also ergonomic refinement in an effort to reduce fatigue and pain that can have a negative impact on the quality of life of clinicians."

The dentist's stool offers a one-lever adjustment for locking seat and backrest tilt while providing a ratcheted backrest for an intuitive height adjustment without the use of knobs.

Optional armrests are available for the dentist's stool to offer support for the elbows in the neutral shoulder position. Arm pad adjustments include height, swivel and slide, optimizing positioning of the armrests to better accommodate personal needs.

The assistant's stool provides an optional ratcheted backrest, a ratchet release body support with height adjustment and an integrated footrest that automatically adjusts with the seat height.
