This is how it works
The smartgear headgear spring module is hooked into the headgear cap or the headgear neck strap instead of the traditional force module. The integrated electronic unit measures and stores wearing time, average force, as well as temperature.
The patient himself can read the data on the integrated display. For even better control of the compliance treatment plan, the orthodontist can transfer all data via the infrared interface to his computer (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7). The smartgear compliance control software evaluates the force and temperature profile and analyses the wearing behaviour.
Using the smartgear headgear brace module in combination with the continuous analysis of the tracking data, the orthodontist is able to make well-founded decisions on the basis of the wearing time, the force and the therapy success. At the bottom line, this means that there is objective information as a base to argue whether the therapy should be continued as before – or whether the treatment appliances may need to be adjusted.
