moDest / mobile dentalchair

moDest
moDest

moDest is a mobile dentalchair which eases outpatient treatments in hospitals, retirement homes and in domestic environments. The continuous adjustment and synchronous movement of the back- and footrest from the sitting position into the lying position and vice versa induces higher comfort and convenience during treatments - both for patients and dentists.
Furthermore a general height increase is gained while lowering the backrest which creates a suitable height for the treatment. Once the treatment has finished, moDest can be compactly folded together and transported with ease.
