Portable Patient Chair for Dental Camps

About

Portable Patient Chair for Dental Camps

Over 70% of the Indian population currently resides in rural areas, where only one dentist is available for every 250,000 residents. Portable Patient Chair provides travelling dental camps with a sturdy and adjustable folding chair. Designed with hygiene and transportability as primary concerns, the chair is lightweight, folds to save space in dental vans, and has attached wheels to form a trolley. This Portable Patient Chair will allow dental camps to cater to a larger proportion of the under-represented patient base of urban and rural India, considerably enhancing access to basic healthcare.
