Choosing the handle

Choosing the most ergonomic hand instrument can make a big difference in terms of discomforts and disorders when performing dental work. It is by no means insignificant what the diameter of the hand instrument’s handle is or what the material of the grip surface is. When holding the instruments for approximately 2,000 hours each year, the design, weight and feel of the instrument are crucial for the dental practitioner in terms of his/her performance and productivity.

LM instruments are available with a selection of different handles. All exceptionally ergonomic due to the elastic silicone coating and optimized contouring. The clinician’s hand fit and indication both play a role in selecting an ideal handle type. Interchanging different handles, may place the user’s hand under even less strain.

New colors, naming and coding

To facilitate color coding and brighten up working practices LM-ErgoSense, LM-ErgoMax and LM-ErgoNorm instruments come now in new refreshing colors. The name and the code number on the handle ease the identification of the instrument during clinical procedures and maintenance.
