1930’s Dental Surgeon’s Pivoting Stool

1930’s Dental Surgeon’s Pivoting Stool


A fantastic and very unusual, height adjustable , pivoting dental surgeon’s stool, sometimes known as a rest and relief stool.


It was manufactured by a company called Ritter in the 1930’s. The shaft is telescopic and is pivoted at the base, with a spring loaded ball joint (works like a joystick). This mechanism enables the surgeon to change position without having to move from the seat base and the height can be adjusted with one hand whilst seated, using an ingenious circular ring just below the seat pad. It is activated by squeezing it towards the seat and slightly lifting from the seat to rise or adding pressure to lower it.


Due to the spring loaded ball mechanism, the stool returns to rest at a slightly tilted angle. Measurements: 58cm at the lowest point - 75cm extended to the highest It is very heavy at the base so that it doesn’t tip.
