diaco® dental chair treatments pass 100,000 patient milestone

More than 100,000 wheelchair patients worldwide have now been safely received dental treatment in their own wheelchair thanks to the diaco® dental chair.

The diaco® dental chair is a fully mobile dental platform designed specifically for wheelchair patients. The patient remains in their own wheelchair at all times, eliminating manual handling and hoisting, whilst enabling the optimal angle for dental care treatment for both patient and clinical team.

David Vandyke, Co-Founder of diaco® commented "The first wheelchair patient was treated on a diaco® dental chair 5 years ago so it was fitting that we have now passed the 100,000th patient mark as we celebrate our 5th birthday."

He added "On behalf of all the team at diaco® we'd like to thank all the patients and special care dental teams worldwide who have helped in making the diaco® dental chair such a success."
