ergoTOS mobile elderly patient chair
diagnosis at elderly homes
More and more elderly do not visit the dentist and stay home due to decreased mobility. Studio DenHartogMusch, together with TP Hatert developed a patient chair that makes it easy to position the elder patient in ergonomic treatment position. The short sit depth, the high sit and comfortable arm rests of the ergoTOS enable even less mobile patients to walk in and out independantly. Because of the light weight and easy folding the ergoTOS is a handy tool when consulting elderly at home.
safety and adjusting comfort
During development patient safety and comfort was the main focuss. Since elder patients are more demanding in terms of a head rest and overall stability, an extra adjustable head support was created and and the arm rest was integrated into the foldable frame. This project has been funded by the Province of Gelderland.
