  1. I do mobile dental work and this chair would be really helpful for me :-) is it going to be sold?

    To the uploader, or anyone else watching this now: Would any of you guys happen to know the costs that went into making this? Like, what was the budget?, what all materials were needed?, how much did each of the materials cost?, stuff like that.
    I only ask because I’m doing research on dental chairs for a class of mine.

  3. How do you use the zero-gravity chair? I am starting a non-profit screening company and find the zero-gravity chair very difficult to use. Do you stand up? They don’t lean back far enough for me.

  4. Fantastic!!!! I use the zero gravity chair for my mobile business.  Has the chair been manufactured yet? If so where can we purchase it?
