(Some information concerning compatible handpieces for the esa™ was not printed in the July RDH "Product Report" section. Here is that information.)
Developed to reduce wrist and hand fatigue, esa™ (extended straight attachment) disposable prophy angle eliminates the need for the straight attachment in connecting prophy angles to the handpiece motor. esa™ has a very comfortable, nonslip grip; connects quickly and easily to the handpiece motor; and delivers smooth, quiet, consistent performance. Plus, the user will never have to autoclave, maintain, or buy a straight attachment ever again!
esa™ is 50 percent lighter than traditional handpiece connections, making the last prophy of the day feel as easy as the first one.
This initial esa™ MW model currently is only available for the Midwest Shorty and Rhino slow-speed handpieces, which account for approximately 40 percent of the slow-speed handpieces sold over the last 10 years in the U.S. market. Preventech™ expects to have an esa™ ST model to fit the Star Titan handpiece later this year.
