Description:The task at hand is to find an economic low cost method to manufacture and upholster adult dental chair soft goods. Quality and life of covering must be robust, 10+ year life. The dental chair soft goods typically consist of three major components; underlying support structure, many times this is a vacuum formed plastic element, the seat foam, and the upholstery itself (see attached photos). Dental chairs are normally divided into two main components; 1) The back structure, 2) The seating structure. Key to this design initiative, should include an alternate way of securing the leather to the underside of the chair. Most chairs currently utilize hundreds of staples to secure the fabric, this poses to problems: 1) High direct labor, 2) No way to easily replace the upholstery covering. We are seeking a new innovative design ideas for new methods of manufacture without using staples or typical snap fittings.
Wants:Estimated manufacturing costs, amount of direct labor, innovation.

Angled Keyboard Slide
The design requires a clean simple method with minimized parts and manufacturing costs. Product is low volume, 250 to 500 pieces per year. We are interested in minimizing capital tooling costs. Design challenge is to design a keyboard slide platform that sits at a 32.5 degree angle (see attached documents). Keyboard slide needs to easily lock in upward position when not in use, and needs to easily be released and slide downward when in use. The keyboard slide is on a cart platform, so when the cart is being moved around, if it gets bumped, we do not want the keyboard slide to dislodge and slip into the down position.
