Score Amazone Balance

  • £43300 Exc VAT


The Amazone Balance is a popular Score active sitting saddle stool for female dental professionals. The narrower seat top and more acute thigh angled seat is ergonomically designed to better fit the female shaped pelvis. In addition, there is a highly engineered spring mechanism that enables you to gently move the seat top as you sit. Gently moving during the day not only reduces stasis in the lower limb circulatory system but also enables you to constantly work the small postural muscles in the trunk and core. In the long term sitting in a better posture is thought to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain and neck pain. Similar to the Jumper, the Amazone has a simple to use height adjustment lever and is very light which makes it highly portable around the dental practice.

POPULAR DENTAL PROFESSIONAL QUESTIONS

WHO SHOULD USE THE AMAZONE BALANCE?

The Amazone Balance is designed to develop core muscle strength and is most popular for dental professionals looking to improve posture and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury. Occasionally, we have found that the Balance is too challenging for individuals who have recently had back or pelvic surgery or a recent back injury and so do not recommend it in these situations.

HOW FAR DOES THE SEAT MOVE?

The stool can move approximately 5-7 degrees in all directions.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE AMAZONE AND AMAZONE BALANCE?

The stools are identical in every way except for the movement mechanism. The movement mechanism on the standard Amazone allows lever based forwards and backwards tilt whilst the active movement mechanism on the Amazone Balance allows a small amount of movement (>5 degrees) in all directions.

Gas Stem

The gas stem is the central strut that connects the base to the seat top and is the mechanism that enables you to adjust the height of the stool. There are three gas stem options which should be selected based on your height.

  • Low (Work surface height 70-80 cm)
  • Standard (Work surface height 80-90 cm)
  • High (Work surface height 90-100 cm)

 

Seat Mechanism

There are three mechanisms at the top of the score saddle stool.

  • Fixed Seat: The fixed seat is the mechanism that effectively holds the seat in a fixed position. The advantage of this type of mechanism is that it is the cheapest mechanism available. The disadvantage is that the stool does not enable much movement or tilting at the pelvis. For this reason, we don’t offer this option on the website.
  • Adjustable Seat: A tilting mechanism enables you to use a lever to adjust the upright position of the saddle. By tilting the saddle seat forwards you are able to put more weight through your feet and sit more upright. We have found this mechanism to be very successful with individuals who get pain when their back is flexed and are more comfortable in a more upright position.
  • Balance: The alternative to the tilt mechanism is the balance mechanism which allows a small degree of movement in all directions whilst sitting on the stool. This mechanism has been inspired by swiss ball sitting and is designed to strengthen your core muscles as they work to maintain the seat position.

 

Castors

As a standard the stools come with castors suitable for hard floors. However, we can supply other castors including castors for carpets, lockable castors and loaded castors. If you are not sure what castors you need please contact us

Upholstery

 

 

Additional Accessories

Footring

The footring is designed to be fastened at the bottom of the gas stem and is designed to provide a firm support surface for the feet when sitting in a higher position

Backrest

 

The backrest is designed to give an extra layer of support for longer procedures and for dental professionals with specific spine support needs. The support fits into the low part of the spine and is both height adjustable and back angle adjustable.

360 DEGREE SUPPORT:

The 360 degree upper limb support is a highly adjustable dynamic support. The unique feature of this support is the ability to position the support at any position around the body, this gives the user an enormous amount of flexibility in terms of upper limb support and is particularly popular with dental hygienists and dental nurses.

Score chairs are produced according to high quality standards and long lasting materials, and as such have:

  • A 5-year guarantee on all metal parts
  • A 2-year guarantee on upholstery if used for its intended purpose
