“Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks.” My parents still swear I am related to her, as well as the Princess in The Princess and the Pea. As the Goldilocks and the Three Bears story goes, Goldilocks basically invades the woodland home of three little bears and proceeds to sample their bowls of porridge, try out their chairs, lie on all their beds. Of course, Goldilocks found that only 1 in 3 of everything was just right. The soup was too hot, too cold, or perfect, two chairs were too big, and all but one of the beds was too hard or too soft.
The Goldilocks concept applies to practitioner seating in the dental operatory. Having the right chair or stool is not just a matter of fussiness. It’s important. No backs or behinds are the same. Neither are hips, legs, or feet. So chairs should be customized to the extent possible to support and enhance the dental professional’s body type and type of work. The Brewer Company focuses on making stools for dentists and hygienists that fit in the “just right” category.
Brewer’s current lines are comprised of the latest in comfort and ergonomic enhancements. The 9500 series integrates Dynamic Motion Technology as well as a unique wrap-around backrest designed to cradle the back as well as provide generous range of motion. Dentist and hygienist models are available in various heights, with adjustable foot rings, adjustable bodies and arms, left and right arms, and a flexible, waterfall seat. The backrest and seat adjust independently for a wide range of comfort.
The saddle-style seat of the 9000, 9100, and 9200 series stools feature continuous synchronized movement and lumbar support, which results in proper weight distribution and neutral posture. The addition of HybriGel foam provides a cooling effect. A wide range of column heights helps you find the seat that best suits your stature. Variations in seat deepness and backrest configuration accommodate preferences in range of motion.
For a completely saddle-style seat (with no back), which is said to promote back health by diminishing load on the back muscles at the same time it is engaging your core muscles, Brewer offers the 135DSS series. This patented design distributes your weight over your “sit bones,” encourages wider hip abduction, and aligns the vertebrae and disks, which in turn helps relieve tension in the shoulders and neck.
Goldilocks would approve. So would the Princess. Nothing beats comfort, reduced fatigue, and optimum productivity.
