New iBite™ Sensor Kit includes sensor, USB or wireless interface, and software to log, plot, and display data.
Fremont, CA (PRWEB) - Loadstar Sensors, a manufacturer of digital sensing solutions, has unveiled the first ever digital bite force sensing solution that makes it easy to measure bite strength of patients before and after Orthognathic surgeries and dental procedures.
The iBite kit includes a force sensor with a comfortable biting surface, a USB or Wireless (XBee, WiFi or BLE) digital interface and LoadVUE Pro software. The software works on any Windows PC or Tablet and lets a user capture, display, log and plot the force vs. time data. The sensor comes pre-calibrated with a NIST traceable calibration certificate included with each shipment. “This solution offers the first practical solution to get consistent, repeatable and accurate measurement of bite forces,” said Div Harish, Founder and CEO of Loadstar Sensors.
“The small thin sensor can be easily held in one’s hand and inserted into the mouths of even kids to measure bite forces on front as well as back teeth,” Div also said. The sensing solution is a boon for Orthognathic surgeons who need to get baseline readings from their patients prior to surgery and then track and monitor the progress after surgery to make sure the patient is on the road to recovery.
“The digital solution makes it easy to capture data on a certain day and compare results with prior data to see how well a patient is responding to treatment or therapy.”
The iBite kit is available for purchase starting June 25, 2019 on the loadstarsensors.com web site. The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $1249 for the kit with USB Output and $1499 for the kit with Wireless Output. Distributor inquiries are welcome.
