This may sound like a strange concept to combine a toothbrush and mobile app – but an American company (Beam Technologies) has developed the worlds first “smart toothbrush” which has been taking the US by storm and has now also started to enter the UK markets!
The toothbrush is a manual one…but with a twist. After each brushing session the toothbrush will send information about your hygiene routine over to your IOS or android app.
The “beam brush” records:
- Brushing duration
- How often you brush
The mobile app shows the data with an easy to use interface which clearly highlights the important areas, such as: not brushing your teeth twice a day.
The app also contains a timer that plays music for two minutes so you are able to easily stay on track to brush your teeth for the recommended length of time!
Beam technologies have already indicated that they are looking at updating the app to include game like achievements and social media sharing to reward people for practicing a consistent healthy oral hygiene routine.
