Progressive Practice has partnered with Admetec to bring a game-changing line of ergonomic loupes to dentists, hygienists and surgeons in Singapore. Utilising a unique state-of-the-art ergonomic structure, ergo deflects the optical path of the loupes 45 degrees down, enabling you to maintain a neutral head position while tending to the patient; thereby preventing aches and physical damage.
The super lightweight ergo loupes weigh 45-55g*, and offer 6 magnifications:
3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7.5x, 10x. Each pair of loupes is customised to fit the individual measurements and needs of each customer, ensuring an optimal and personalised experience for all users.
Ergo loupes are the first truly ergonomic, custom-designed loupes that work with the body’s biomechanical design rather than against it.
This precision can enhance the accuracy of your work, leading to better patient outcomes and increased work efficiency.
The ergonomic design of these loupes promotes better posture, reducing the risk of neck, back, and shoulder pain.
With the improved visualisation provided by these loupes, users can avoid squinting or straining their eyes, reducing eye fatigue and discomfort.
By allowing professionals to work at their best, Admetec Ergonomic Loupes ensure that patients receive the highest standard of treatment.
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the injuries and disorders affecting muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, joint cartilage, or spinal disc. They are the most important work-related problems currently reported among dentists.
In standing and sitting positions, the average weight of an adult head is 4.5-5.4kg (9.9-11.91b). However, when tilted, the load on the neck can reach up to 27kg (59.5lb). This can lead to premature wear and tear of intervertebral discs.
Furthermore, working long hours with an unnatural head position exerts extreme pressure on the entire spinal column, which can cause irreparable harm to health over time.
In the above diagram, Position 1 depicts the most natural and healthy head position. Conventional loupes do not facilitate working in this position. In practice, the most common position is somewhere between Positions 2 and 3, and might even reach 45 degrees, as shown in Position 4. Admetec Ergo loupes encourage holding of the head in a neutral position during clinical work. Over time, use of ergo loupes intuitively and subconsciously trains clinicians to maintain correct head positioning and correct posture as depicted in Position 1.
