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.
