  1. 1. MagnaVu A New Standard of Living for the Dental Professional
  2. 2. MagnaVu <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Statistics </li></ul><ul><li>Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanisms Leading to MSD </li></ul><ul><li>Prevention of MSD – MagnaVu </li></ul><ul><li>Additional Benefits of MagnaVu </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>1960's were years of transition in dentistry </li></ul><ul><li>Dentists realized that it was healthier for them to work sitting down, with the patient in a reclining position to better access the oral cavity </li></ul><ul><li>Four-handed dentistry, sterilization and other technological advances are now the standard of profession </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy workloads, ergonomics, predispositions and equipment selections are key factors today in determining a dentist’s wellbeing </li></ul><ul><li>Posture and ergonomics are fundamental in the </li></ul><ul><li>prevention of musculoskeletal disorders </li></ul>
  4. 4. Statistics <ul><li>75% of dentists and hygienists suffer from musculoskeletal disorders that affect occupational health and the quality of practice life </li></ul><ul><li>MSDs are the leading reason for early retirement among dentists </li></ul><ul><li>29.5% of dentists cut their career short because they are in pain </li></ul><ul><li>Source: 1997 Study, The Institute of Dental Ergonomics </li></ul>
  5. 5. Statistics <ul><li>70% of dental students experience chronic musculoskeletal pain by their third year of dental school * </li></ul><ul><li>Main contributing factor to MSD is working posture: stretching, reaching, leaning and awkward movement patterns, which cause dentists to move out of neutral alignment of the body </li></ul><ul><li>Equipment selection, muscle weakness, debilitation, training techniques, work habits and workload have all been blamed for poor seating posture in dentists </li></ul><ul><li>Back and neck pain is one of the leading causes of lost work time, second only to the common cold </li></ul>* January 2005 Study, Journal of the American Dental Association
  6. 6. Statistics <ul><li>271 students from all four years at the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry were included in this study, an overall response rate of 85 percent. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Defining Musculoskeletal Disease: … a disorder of the muscles, tendons, peripheral nerves or vascular system not directly resulting from an acute or instantaneous event (e.g., slips or falls) <ul><li>The most common MSDs result from prolonged static postures in dentistry including: </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic low back pain , referring into the hip, buttock or one leg </li></ul><ul><li>Tension neck syndrome , pain between shoulder blades, possible tingling or numbness in one arm or hand </li></ul><ul><li>Trapezius myalgia , pain, tenderness and muscle spasms in the upper trapezius muscles </li></ul><ul><li>Rotator cuff impingement, pain in the shoulder on overhead reaching </li></ul>
  8. 8. Mechanisms Leading to MSD <ul><li>Work in front of and below the operator’s eye level leads to a forward head and rounded shoulder posture </li></ul><ul><li>Forward-head-and-rounded-shoulder posture also increases forces on the upper neck muscles and spinal vertebral disks </li></ul><ul><li>Low back strain is a common diagnosis among workers who must sit in a slightly flexed forward position </li></ul><ul><li>Under normal conditions, damaged tissue is repaired during rest periods, but in dentistry, damage often exceeds the rate of repair due to insufficient rest periods </li></ul><ul><li>To protect the stressed area from further injury, the body uses another part of the damaged muscle to maintain the body position </li></ul>
