Planmeca announces new dental unit
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.
Design – User-centric thinking
Planmeca Compact i5 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 everyday work as smooth as possible, both now and in the future.
Wellbeing – A relaxed dental team and patients
Planmeca Compact i5 has been designed to support the wellbeing of both the entire dental team and the patient. The 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-molded upholstery guarantees an enjoyable patient experience.
Cleanliness – A safe working and treatment environment
In Planmeca Compact i5, all the essential infection control functions are integrated and neatly organised in their own compartments. The cleaning procedures are automated, and the LED indicator on the dental unit informs of 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
Just like all of Planmeca’s digital equipment, Planmeca Compact i5 can be easily connected to a network in order to produce valuable data. With Planmeca’s intelligent software solutions, clinics can track and follow their patient flow, optimise their capacity through real-time information, and monitor the use of their equipment. Furthermore, the dental unit’s smart sign-in system allows fast access to personalised dental unit settings with a flash of a card.
Evolution – Continuous improvement
The rapidly changing world of dentistry – with its increasing quality assurance demands and the constantly growing patient flow – sets new demands for dental clinics, and Planmeca Compact i5 has been designed to cater to these demands. The dental unit is guaranteed to have a long life span: it has been built so that it can be upgraded with new features any time. This makes it a truly future-proof investment.
