CONTINENTAL
Classe A3 Plus Continental is the essential dental unit for today’s modern surgeon thanks to compact design, performance and prime practicality. The dental team will be totally at ease with a treatment centre that offers outstanding reliability and operative simplicity in every context.

The Short Arm version is an ideal option for small surgery environments where every inch of space counts. The shorter fixed arm (just 50 cm) reduces the overall dimensions and enables the surgeon to work comfortably in all positions.

EFFECTIVE WORKING ERGONOMICS THINNER, SPECIALLY SHAPED CHAIR

COMFORT AND OPERATIVE EASE COME FROM CLEVER DESIGN

Unobstructed approach to operating zone In addition to supplying comfortable anatomical support for the patient, the patient chair must ensure unobstructed approach to the operating zone by the medical personnel. The new chair, thinner than the previous version, has a tapered section between the seat and lumbar support, to facilitate approach and help freedom of movement for both the dentist and the assistant. The chair movement (from 90° to Trendelenburg position) is smooth and regular. To ensure effective working ergonomics and the proper comfort of shorter patients or children, a supplementary cushion is available on request. Special visco-elastic upholstery Surgical visco-elastic padding for total patient comfort. The characteristics of the materials used provide perfect patient support at all times. By adapting to their individual shape and increasing contact surface area, the pressure exerted on the patient’s body is reduced. Visco-elastic padding provides an active, calibrated response that gives maximum patient comfort in all working positions, especially during prolonged operations.

Made-to-last machines An appropriate choice of materials means hardwearing quality and optimum functionality. Cast aluminium, ceramics and polyurethane are used to increase structural strength and ensure long-term durability. Special plastic materials such as ABS and ASA provide resistance to chemical aggression and make surfaces easy to clean and do not attract dust.
