Braces should be worn 12,8 hours per day to achieve an optimal treatment result. On average braces are only worn 7,65 hours per day. The fast successful treatment result fails to appear, therefore the costs for orthodontist, patients and insurance increase.
Emedico developed the electronic braces which make the success visible, to reduce costs and long waiting times, but also to increase the patient's motivation.
Various information are sent directly by means of new printed electronics to an app, which shows the patient his assistance and the success of treatment. The patients could be motivated, for example with bonus programmes, to wear the braces longer.
With customer requirement, it is possible for the orthodontist to have a look at process data to plan approaching visits more effectively and to capture and realise successful treatment results individually.
