Synopsis: Swiss oral care brand Curaprox introduces Samba, a groundbreaking robotic toothbrush that caters specifically to individuals with disabilities, revolutionizing oral hygiene practices while promoting autonomy and enhancing overall oral well-being. Recognizing the long-standing issue of poor oral hygiene among individuals with disabilities, Curaprox has taken a pioneering step by introducing Samba. Unlike traditional toothbrushes which clean only one surface at a time, Samba cleans 36 surfaces at the same time, significantly reducing brushing time from 2 minutes to just 30 seconds per side.

Introduction

Samba, the world's first robotic toothbrush designed explicitly for individuals with disabilities, is set to revolutionize oral hygiene routines. Developed by an Israeli startup and introduced by Swiss premium oral care brand Curaprox, Samba brings newfound independence and improved oral health to millions of people worldwide.

Main Digest

People with physical and mental disabilities currently have two options when it comes to brushing their teeth - rely on a family member or a caregiver, or brush on their own and compromise their health with subpar cleaning. Shockingly, studies have shown that a staggering 88% of individuals with disabilities suffer from dental problems, highlighting the urgent need for a tailored solution.

Developed for 8 years by an Israeli startup, Samba utilizes a pioneering combination of low and high frequency oscillations, propelling 12,900 soft bristles along the teeth with a dynamic brushing motion that helps remove plaque and debris more thoroughly from the teeth and gums. This technology eliminates the need for manual hand movements, granting individuals a newfound level of independence in their oral care routine.
