About



SmartBrush - IOT Tooth Brushing Made Smarter

Let’s be honest. Brushing our teeth is boring. Not only that, but most people simply don’t do it the correct or most efficient way.

Brushing the smile-makers must incorporate sound technique and maximum efficiency. If not, the long-term results have increased consequences for mouth hygiene and overall well-being.

As a father of two, I noticed my own girls having issues brushing their teeth. They hit and miss areas of their mouth. I realized I had to develop a practical and educational tool for improving brushing habits.

That is how Smart Brush device was born. Takes the common toothbrush and integrates with the wireless Blue-tooth device. It’s design, blue-tooth ready, portable and easy to integrate.

SO WHAT IS THE ISSUE?

The average person doesn’t clean their teeth the proper way. Poor habits equate to increased dental visits and long-term health problems.



FEATURES

  • Wireless Blue-tooth connectivity
  • 3 Axis gyro sensors , 3 axis accelerometer module and FSR (Force sensing resistor)
  • Product app: incorporates educational information on proper brushing/notifications
  • Real-time data: brushing habits recorded
  • Ease of installation: toothbrush connects right into Smart brush
  • Brushing pattern developed: pressure of brushing and frequency are tracked



Simply connect your toothbrush to the SmartBrush device.

App data is gathered in real time. The unique aspect for this data shows how the family is brushing.

dynamics are working together. Indicates who can be doing better in their brushing regimen.

THE FACTS DON’T LIE.

Poor brushing practices increases gingivitis and potential for tooth decay. Latent concerns for cardiovascular and metabolic wellness is attributed to improper oral hygiene.

Dental costs have increased astoundingly in the past decade. With increased visits, families face higher dental bills. Simply because brushing habits are not followed correctly.



NOT ONLY FOR FAMILIES.

SmartBrush is a benefit to community groups and schools. Educators and facilitators understand the consequences of poor personal hygiene…especially oral. When scanning the app data, children are advised to sound techniques and brushing practices.

HOW SMART BRUSH CAME TO BE.

My daughter’s well-being has always been very important to me. That included the care of their teeth.

Often I found it challenging to ensure that they brushed properly and kept their pearly whites in good condition. Sometimes visits to the dentist did not always reflect sound practices at home.

68% of all brushers do it incorrectly. That means over half of the population potentially could risk health issues by poor dental hygiene. That concerned me enormously.

Turning to the idea of developing a way of using everyday technology for data research and creating a fun and educational device to connect to toothbrushes was the first mindset.

Considerable time was placed into developing a case that captured design of most toothbrushes. I knew

the container had to adapt appropriately to hold toothbrushes.

Next, creating an app that allowed for all necessary data points had to be considered. The SmartBrush app involves a coaching element for better brushing, along with the capturing elements of brushing habits.

It also had to be interactive and not use outdated information. That is why it truly is real-time utilizing wireless Blue-Tooth expertise.

SmartBrush is ergonomically easy to handle, includes a sleek design and functionally practical. By adapting modern wireless blue-tooth connectivity, brushing habits are inputted, detailed and results complied.

The educational and functional aspects of SmartBrush creates a REVOLUTIONARY NEW way for families to alter bad habits into “smarter” ones.

The cost for the complete SmartBrush is economically designed to fit most people. Compared to the price for going to the dentist, SmartBrush is easily affordable.

Ensuring that the ease of use, educational points and pricing create a “smart” package, I chose to bring SmartBrush to KickStarter for consideration.

SmartBrush is cutting edge in scope and purpose. For that reason, I am excited to introduce SmartBrush to you. Your endorsement is very much appreciated.

Risks and challenges

Development of Smartbrush was carefully planned. Only a completely unpredictable event such as the shortage of some key material could delay our production for a period of several weeks at the worst case scenario. I am confident of, and committed to, delivering a quality product on time.
