A-dec 500 Dental Chair
Superior comfort, precise positioning, and optimal access
Experience a new level of connection
Everything you need is easy to position and comfortably within reach. With an ultra-thin backrest and slim-profile headrest, you have ample leg room under the chair for ergonomic positioning and optimal oral cavity access.
Precision hydraulic motion allows quiet, gentle stops and starts during patient positioning, eliminating anxiety from jarring movements. Coupled with the virtual pivot, which synchronizes movement with the natural motion of the patient, there's no readjusting when the chair is reclined or returned.
Whole body support
By reducing pressure points and streamlining support through scientific pressure mapping, patients remain comfortable during procedures. With the stingray-shaped backrest fully supporting their back and shoulders, the plush, one-piece quilted upholstery (sewn option) only adds to the experience.
Color and style, delivery options, foot controls and instruments. You deserve to work your way, right down to the last stitch. We believe in choice.
A-dec 500 dental chair
Ultra-thin, flexible backrest
Allows you to work in a comfortable position—legs under the patient, elbows at your side.
Dual articulating gliding headrest
Adjust the headrest with one hand at the press of a lever, so you can always achieve an optimal view of the oral cavity.
Multi-position armrests solidly support patients when they need it, and move out of the way when they don't.
When the chair reclines, the toeboard imperceptibly raises a full 9" (229 mm) for a gentle cradling effect.
Low base-down point
Allows you to work comfortably—regardless of height.
60° swivel with brake
Gives you 30° rotation on each side of center.
Ergonomic baseplate design
