Tech Deck: Is Your Exam Chair Repelling Patients?

We all know the power of a first impression. That’s why you keep your waiting room stocked with the latest issues of Sports Illustrated and Time, and you make sure your receptionists always have a smile on their faces.

But what about your exam chair? Specifically, the maroon one in lane two with tattered upholstery and squeaky footrest. If your exam chairs aren’t up to snuff, they could damage the reputation of your practice.

Bell’s exam chair reconditioning program can help. From top to bottom, we’ll disassemble the chair and restore it to its former glory. This includes:

  • Reupholster all cushions
  • Clean and lubricate all moving components
  • Check wiring and electrical
  • Inspect and service the hydraulic system
  • Check operation of headset
  • Make any necessary adjustments

We only use original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts and materials, and all of our technicians are factory trained. And we warranty all of our reconditioned chairs for six months after the date of delivery.

Here’s the kicker. While we service your exam chair, we’ll provide you with a free loaner chair to keep your practice running at 100%. All of this at a fraction of the cost of a new exam chair – or the loss of a repulsed patient.

Call Bell Ophthalmic at 1-800-255-5929 for a formal estimate, and let’s refresh one of your most important pieces of equipment.
