Control Aerosols; Control Risk

With a renewed focus on dental office aerosols, A-dec is here to support you with proactive solutions so you can stay safe and continue using the tools you trust.

Management of aerosols is an important part of day-to-day infection control – and has become even more front of mind during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Aerosol capture in dental surgeries can be especially challenging in two-handed dentistry situations as well as in more complex four-handed dental procedures.

Sometimes there are simply not enough hands to do the job, making you wish you had a ‘third hand’ to hold onto something when you quite literally have your hands full!

Well, now you have! Thanks to a simple and practical solution from the world’s leading dental equipment manufacturer. The A-dec Third-Hand HVE Holder makes it easier to practice two-handed dentistry while maintaining essential aerosol control.

The flexible ‘third hand’ securely positions the HVE tip to within an inch (25mm) of the oral cavity – delivering precise, effortless aerosol capture while keeping hands free for other instruments and activities chairside. It’s a simple, affordable way to bring more functionality to your surgery.

When needed, the A-dec Third-Hand can go instantly from ‘hands-free’ to ‘hands-on’ by simply lifting the HVE out of the holder for direct control.

The flexible design attaches to the headrest glide bar of most A-dec chairs, with no special tools needed.

The flexible arm and adjustable positioning accommodate patients of all sizes while allowing easy entry and exit from the chair.

The reversible attachment easily adjusts for right- or left-handed clinicians, and four-handed procedures.

The A-dec Third Hand HVE Holder is such a simple and effective hands-free solution for extra-oral aerosol capture that you’ll wonder how you ever did without!
