Leading Swiss oral health brand CURAPROX announced the launch of Samba, the world’s first robotic toothbrush created to allow people with disabilities to brush their teeth effectively and independently.
People with physical and mental disabilities currently only have two options for brushing their teeth, rely on a family member or a caregiver, or brush on their own and compromise their health with subpar cleaning. Studies have shown that a staggering 88% of individuals with disabilities suffer from dental problems, highlighting the urgent need for a tailored solution.
Developed for over eight years, Samba utilises a pioneering combination of low and high-frequency oscillations, propelling 12,900 soft bristles along the teeth with a dynamic brushing motion that helps remove plaque and debris thoroughly from the teeth and gums. This technology eliminates the need for manual hand movements, granting individuals newfound independence in their oral care routine.
“Samba was developed with the belief that everyone, regardless of their abilities, deserves a healthy mouth; having a disability should not stand in the way of good oral hygiene,” said Eran Eyal, an Inventor of Samba.
“Samba is a pioneering innovation at the intersection of technology and oral health, exemplifying our commitment to inclusivity and the well-being of all individuals, regardless of their physical or mental abilities,” added Steffen Mueller, Managing Director, Curaden, USA. “By eliminating barriers and empowering people with disabilities to brush their teeth effectively and independently, Samba opens the door to a healthier future for millions of individuals worldwide. We are proud to introduce this much-needed solution, which embodies our dedication to premium oral care and signifies our unwavering belief in promoting inclusivity and improving lives.”Click below to share this article
