Abstract:

Portability of dental equipment is a priority for those who provide care to the home-bound, nursing homes, hospitals, rural areas and deployed military. A portable dental chair should be easily transportable, suited for its purpose and be cost effective. A simple lightweight, adjustable, compact chair constructed from corrugated cardboard has been designed at the Naval Dental Research Institute, Great Lakes, Illinois. The double-ply corrugated cardboard sheets are commercially available and the component parts may be cut out with a sharp knife 1. The chair is designated as the mobile oral treatment and examination chair MOTEC.
