Definition : Sinks designed primarily for cleaning the hands of healthcare personnel in hospital examination and/or treatment rooms, including physician and dental offices, and nurse stations. These sinks typically consist of one or more stainless steel bowls, with a seamless construction without crevices, that include several faucets, cold and hot water supply, and appropriate tubing for drainage; the sinks may include electrical receptacles, and/or drawers for instruments and supplies storage. They are frequently operated using infrared devices or footpedals. Healthcare staff handwashing is used to reduce/prevent the transmission of infection to patients; the sinks are usually available as stand-alone equipment, but may be also included as an integral part of a nurse station. Examination/treatment sinks are usually located throughout healthcare facilities to facilitate personnel handwashing and/or cleaning of small devices and supplies close to the site of patient care.

Health Science Products Inc
The unique concept of Four-Handed Dentistry was developed beginning in the early 1960's by dental researchers at the University Of Alabama School Of Dentistry in Birmingham, Alabama. The research found existing dental equipment did not meet the criteria or allow the true concept and techniques to be properly implemented. In spite of the exhaustive, cutting-edge R&D, existing dental manufacturers ignored and were unwilling to review the findings and ultimately invest in the design of equipment to accommodate the concept. Health Science Products, Inc. (HSP) rose to the occasion and has been producing the unique patented systems that meet and exceed the criteria ever since.
