I-Extend DENTISTRY is an app that has been designed to help Dentists and Dental Professionals effectively manage and over time alleviate some of the tension that builds up during the working day while performing examinations and procedures. It can however be used by members of the general public experiencing muscular tension and pain. All the exercises in I-Extend DENTISTRY can be performed in three minutes or less. They are simple, practical and most of all effective. The exercises can be performed ‘in surgery’ (if you are a dentist or dental worker) and in your work clothes. The exercises can also be performed at home if you wish. Our goal is to help you easily manage the muscular tension that we all experience either through work or just day to day activities.
In the app, on the home screen you will see a representation of an anatomical animated man with seven highlighted buttons or target zones. These buttons relate to the seven critical areas of tension and discomfort experienced by many practitioners in the Dental industry and members of the general public. Tap on a highlighted button and a pop up menu will appear offering three exercises to help you attain some immediate relief. You can turn the figure by swiping across the screen to see front and back views and you can zoom in and out by using the ‘pinch’ action with your fingers.
The I-Extend philosophy is unique in that we present three complimentary techniques to help relieve tension and revitalize your problem areas.
Each exercise can be completed in three minutes or less. Perform the exercise in the area where you feel tension at a time that suits you! For the most effective result, and to manage the tension in your body generated from holding positions for long periods of time, we recommend you do several exercises a day.
