EG TECHNOLOGY, THE SPECIALIST DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANCY BASED IN CAMBRIDGE, UK, ARE CELEBRATING AFTER BEEN GIVEN AN HONOURABLE MENTION IN THE EUROPEAN PRODUCT DESIGN AWARDS FOR THEIR WORK WITH CALCIVIS ON THEIR DENTAL IMAGING SYSTEM.
Calcivis provide dentists with engaging, real-time, chair-side images of early-stage tooth decay, supporting a preventive approach to oral care. Tooth decay is the world’s most common non-communicable disease, with a global prevalence of 35%. Calcivis and eg technology worked together to design the hand-held diagnostic system, which sprays a special ‘photoprotein’ onto the tooth surface and then detects a luminescent flash from any decaying regions. The ergonomic design combines a high specification imaging system within the wireless, handheld probe, which is small enough to fit comfortably into the patient’s mouth.
The European Product Design Awards (ePDA) recognise the efforts of talented international product and industrial designers who aim to improve consumers’ daily lives with practical, well-thought-out creations. ePDA shares the innovative and ground-breaking products with the world.
