The new, sensational hand instrument
Today the focus is on ergonomics – without losing sight of efficiency. The new LM-ErgoSense® hand instrument, meets both of these requirements and is truly a unique combination of ergonomic design and integrated new technology.
LM-ErgoSense® is the outcome of intense research and product development in close cooperation with dental clinicians and professionals. An ergonomic, high quality hand instrument naturally feels good in the hand. Even genuinely sensational as the new, smart LM-ErgoSense® has been described.
“Feels great in the hand”
The value of a truly ergonomic instrument grip can never be emphasized enough as revealed in several scientific studies. A hand instrument with thick silicone handle has been found to be more usable, cause lower perceived strain and to be more productive than those with thinner handles*). LM-ErgoSense® was rated as the best in ten out of fourteen specified usability features compared with the other tested instruments in a dental scaling simulation *). It was also ranked as the best instrument.
LM-Dental™ has developed the idea of an ergonomic instrument even further. An advanced RFID chip can now be integrated into new LM- LM-ErgoSense® instrument handles enabling complete and reliable traceability of the instrument. The scanned and documented information improve patient safety, material handling and increase cost efficiency. Read more at www.dentaltracking.com.
