Abstract
DENTAL ILLNESSES AND INJURIES OCCURRING IN THE FIELD ARE DIFFICULT TO TREAT WITHOUT A DENTAL CHAIR. WE HAVE DESIGNED A FIELD EXPEDIENT DENTAL CHAIR MADE OF COMPOSITE (PRIMARILY HONEYCOMB AND CARBONGRAPHITE FIBER) MATERIALS. THE CHAIR ALLOWS BOTH STAND-UP AND SIT DOWN DENTISTRY. THE CHAIR WEIGHS LESS THAN TEN LB., FOLDS TO A SMALL VOLUME, IS EASILY CLEANED AND IS RUGGED. ADDITIONALLY, THE DEVICE ALLOWS FOR EASY SET-UP AND TAKE-DOWN, AND IS FULLY ADJUSTABLE. PATIENT COMFORT, POSITIONING, AND SAFETY WERE CONSIDERED IN THE DESIGN.
