Tekscan Launches New Digital Occlusal Analysis System
T-Scan™ Novus™ Brings All-New Look and Feel to Computerized Occlusion
Tekscan, Inc. announced the launch of T-Scan™ Novus™, the next generation of Tekscan's digital occlusal analysis system. T-Scan is used by clinicians and researchers who perform or study occlusal analysis in order to effectively measure the timing and force of teeth coming together in the mouth. The new system features an ergonomically designed handpiece, sensors, and sensor supports - bringing an all-new look and feel to digital occlusal analysis. A software update (version 9.1) is being released in tandem with the new system.
The Novus Handpiece has upgrades and improvements to improve efficiency in a clinical setting, such as an easier-to-hold handle, chairside sensitivity adjustment buttons, handle latch redesign, wall attachment, and user-replaceable cord. The accompanying software release comes with user-inspired improvements, such as HIPAA-compliance improvements to the patient list, sensitivity adjustment wizard, election to disregard artifact from overjet/overbite from Class II occlusions, auto-typing (categorization) of multi-bite scans, more accurate ABCD (closure timing) lines, and improved implant loading alerts.
"T-Scan Novus is the biggest release this product has seen in over a decade," said Sarah Hutchinson, Project Manager. "The recent software upgrades bridge the gap between digital renderings and measured occlusal force, while the hardware has been redesigned to reflect the style and functionality of modern dental hardware you'd see in labs or operatories. T-Scan Novus looks as well as it performs and we couldn’t be more excited about this launch."
Dentists who want a modern, digital occlusal analysis system will find the hardware and software ideal for comprehensive exams, patient education, and case finishing in any dental application.
Existing T-Scan customers will receive communications about new pricing programs to upgrade to Novus. Those programs will be available throughout 2015. Potential customers have incentive to buy now at a limited-time pricing through year-end. All new T-Scan systems sold will include a Novus Handpiece and accessories. At the time of launch, the Evolution™ handle is discontinued for new systems, upgrades, or for purchase as a second handle. Evolution sensors and supports will still be available to purchase for legacy users with this system.
