Announced today, new Planmeca i5 dental unit

Announced today (10 December) a spokesperson from Planmeca explaines the concepts that have driven the development of its latest dental unit initiative:

“The new Planmeca Compact™ i5 dental unit has been built around five central themes – design, wellbeing, cleanliness, intelligence, and evolution. All of these principles are carried through in every detail of the dental unit, resulting in a perfect combination of functionality, durability, comfort, safety, and aesthetics.

“The new unit has been designed not only to withstand time, but also to evolve with time. Its compact and lightweight design complements any dental clinic and can be easily tailored to different working preferences.

“From smooth delivery arm movements to the intuitive touch panel offering user guidance in 25 languages, every detail of the dental unit has been designed to make every day work as smooth as possible, both now and in the future.”

Wellbeing – A relaxed dental team and patients

They continued: “The Compact i5 dental unit has been designed to support the wellbeing of both the dental team and the patient. It’s floating chair with a narrowing backrest and the small cuspidor base enable convenient access to the treatment area, while the balanced instrument arms guarantee an ergonomic use of instruments.

“Patient comfort is by no means forgotten: the foldable leg rest enables easy entry and exit, and the custom-moulded upholstery guarantees an enjoyable patient experience.

“In this latest dental unit all the essential infection control functions are integrated and neatly organised in their own compartments. The cleaning procedures are automated, and the LED indicator reports their status. These practical solutions help to speed up infection control, which in turn means a faster patient flow and improved quality assurance.”

Intelligence – Smart tools for smart dentistry

In conclusion: “In harmony with all Planmeca’s digital equipment, the Planmeca Compact i5 dental unit can be quickly and easily connected to a network in order to produce valuable data. Thanks to Planmeca’s intelligent software solutions, clinicians can track and follow their patient flow, optimise their capacity through real-time information, and monitor the use of their equipment.

“And in addition, the dental unit’s smart sign-in system allows fast access to personalised dental unit settings with the flash of a card. Meeting the needs of the rapidly changing world of dentistry – with its increasing quality assurance demands and the constantly growing patient flow – sets new demands for dental practices.

“Planmeca Compact i5 has been designed to cater to these demands. The dental unit is guaranteed to have a long-life span: and it has been built so it can be upgraded with new features and developments as they arise – which makes it a truly future-proof investment.”
