Parents, please note! With this toothbrush you can check if your kids are brushing their teeth properly. The toothbrush developed by a US-based oral care digital health company connects wirelessly to your phone, literally putting the ‘tooth’ into ‘Bluetooth’.
The users of ‘The Beam toothbrush’ can time their strokes and monitor their daily progress. The toothbrush is not electric, so users still have to do the manual brushing themselves, the Daily Mail reported. “Today, the average person brushes their teeth for only 46 seconds, but is 50 per cent more likely to brush their teeth for a full two minutes by using just a simple timer,” its makers said. “The Beam toothbrush is the first app-connected toothbrush.
Nothing about how you brush your teeth changes at all, but what we can do while you’re brushing your teeth does change,” Beam CEO Alex Frommeyer told fastcoexist.com. “The brush reacts to the body’s own bio-electricity when it is placed in the mouth, starting the timer,” Frommeyer said. “The data is then sent to the user’s phone, automatically updating the log and measuring their progress against ‘brushing goals’,” Frommeyer added. The brush will be available next month for USD 50. The app – which will be available separately for users who just wish to use it as a timer – is due to be released for both Android and Apple devices in the coming weeks.
