Control aerosols... control risk...


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 the dental surgery 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 can! Thanks to a simple and practical solution from A-dec - the world's leading dental equipment manufacturer, the A-dec 'Third Hand' HVE Holder securely positions the HVE tip to within an inch (25mm) of the oral cavity, delivering precise, effortless aerosol capture while keeping your 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 line out of the holder for direct control of the suction tip.

The flexible design of the Third Hand easily attaches to the headrest glide bar of most A-dec chairs, with no special tools or modification required.

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 it!
