An IoT solution to help people brush their teeth better

Create a device and mobile application to help people brush their teeth correctly and positively reward them for it - whilst providing their dentist insight into helping them improve their oral health

Challenges to Solve:

  • Need to create a technical solution from scratch, as one was not available on the market
  • How can you provide realtime feedback to users, which is easy to interpret to help users brush their teeth correctly
  • Create a habit forming user experience
  • Requirement to maintain patient privacy, whilst offering data to the patient’s authorised dentist securely
