Bioware Inc. introduces the Alert Toothbrush, a manual toothbrush that warns users with a red light when they brush too hard. The user sees the light and adjusts pressure until the light goes off.
- A calibrated sensor is inside the toothbrush, activating the light when too much pressure is applied.
- The toothbrush is designed for educating patients who brush too zealously, applying excessive pressure on the gums and teeth.
