When is it best to stay in your comfort zone?

During oral surgery recovery, every doctor aims to put patients in a state of physical ease and offer freedom from pain or constraint.

The sophisticated furnishings of Herman Miller and Nemschoff have been used in stylish, versus sterilizing, healthcare environments for five decades, elevating the human experience of care.

As a Herman Miller Healthcare dealer, Benco Dental, the nation’s largest privately-owned dental distribution company,  offers oral health professionals an elevated new world in which to work.

Among those offerings, Nemschoff recliners for oral surgery recovery rooms (shown above, the Ava recliner).

‘Comfortable and comforting’

According to Nemschoff, who in 1957 entered the healthcare market with designs based on a study exploring ways to improve care for the elderly, the Ava delivers form and function in one comprehensive, yet compact, recliner.

“This departure from the typical aesthetic was inspired by extensive research and offers a more inviting seating option that is both comfortable and comforting. Designed to maximize maneuverability with a minimal footprint, Ava’s features include pivoting arms, easy-to-use controls, and reverse recline.”

From a company renowned for its legacy of research-based design, the Ava features:

1.       Contemporary design

2.       Pivoting arms that move out of the way to transport or move patient from bed to chair

3.       Locking/braking casters for easy of movement.

4.       Recline activation from both arms for ease of use

5.       Reverse recline that gets patients into a Trendelenburg type recline. (This puts feet at heart level to help align blood flow.)

6.       Field replaceable components save down time, should something ever need to be replaced.

7.       Limited lifetime warranty on all except the mechanism, which is covered for 10 years

 

Easing the recovery process

Family and friends play an important role in the patient recovery process, and with this in mind Nemschoff offers the Consoul Recliner, which supports their presence at the bedside.

“Built-in features provide comfort, convenience and a sense of boundary to help people socialize, eat, work and sleep within one efficient footprint. Easy-to-reach recliner controls and an independently operated footrest offer a range of positions for resting—including a fully-flat position for sleeping.”

Recognized in the ProductSphere feature of Metropolis magazine, the Consul features:

2.       Independent foot and head recline for flexibility

3.       Arm caps in urethane, fabric or wood to complement interior styling.

5.       Fully flat recline for sleep and resting after surgery

6.       Field replaceable components save down time, should something ever need to be replaced.
