AI Integrated Smart Toothbrush Analyses Dental Problems in Real-Time
Foreo, a Swedish company showcased the Issalexa, an artificially intelligent toothbrush that can potentially examine dental problems
Foreo is developing their ISSA collection since recent past, which is company’s range of electric toothbrushes. The higher-end products use sonic pulse technology to improve the user brushing experience. The smart toothbrush is capable of examining saliva to detect stress, anxiousness, and other dental sensitivities. Furthermore, advanced technology such as speech recognition and Artificial Intelligence are integrated into Issalexa, which helps in detection of dental abnormalities, providing real time words of encouragement and feedback to the owner of the smart toothbrush.
This technology in smart toothbrush is powered by an electromagnetic pulse drive, which is designed to increase the number and consistency of brush strokes per minute. Variety reports that the second generation ISSA 2 was featured onboard the Star Trek Discovery set. The Issalexa has been designed with what the manufacture called as lifestyle support intelligence. The device will advise and speak to its owner, using information derived by analyzing saliva.
The toothbrush features stress level detection, which can analyses anxiousness and stress. This is based on research that shows when people are displaying stress, the mouth becomes abnormally dry (a condition known xerostomia). The toothbrush is pre-programmed with the user’s brushing routine. By learning this Issalexa can determine if the user has missed their oral regime and forgot to brush their teeth. Summarizing the advantages of an artificial intelligence equipped toothbrush, Paul Peros, CEO of Foreo International said “All of our products combine technology and innovation and we are now taking that to the next level in the beauty landscape by adding artificial intelligence and speech technology to our newest products.”
