ORAL CARE & GAMIFICATION JUST COLLIDED: VIGILANT UNVEILS RAINBOW SMART TOOTHBRUSH FOR KIDS

 What’s oral hygiene worth to Americans? A whopping 100 billion US$ dollars a year! What if consumers could start taking preventative care into their own hands?

Leading IoT company VIGILANT based in Switzerland, introduced Rainbow the world’s first smart toothbrush for children at the Bluetooth World Conference in San Jose on April 9, 2014.

Connected via Bluetooth Smart, Rainbow helps children learn the perfect brushing technique recommended by dentists. It combines high-tech and fun in a device that effectively improves brushing and oral hygiene. With its motion and 3D sensors, Rainbow is a manual toothbrush that tracks brush positions and movements inside the mouth while the app is calculating variance and guiding the brusher. The app also incentives children to perform best-in-class brushing techniques through an interactive phone/tablet game that models great toothbrushing behavior. Parents can now comfortably check kids’ brushing habits on their smartphone, but also know how well they are doing it!

VIGILANT designs precision instruments that connect to smartphones to increase quality of life. The goal is to empower users by giving them access to useful information and engage them into making smarter lifestyle decisions.

New technologies are playing a prominent role in the healthcare and environment space. Amazing apps and devices are revolutionizing our interaction with things.  Today, healthcare can benefit the most from devices that support early stage preventative care like Rainbow.

“At Vigilant, we believe highly innovative products like Rainbow can actually change the way people manage their health. Many children (and some adults) simply don’t know how to brush their teeth, creating a 100 billion US$ oral care burden. Our mission is to design and develop devices with smart apps to empower users to make smarter, healthier daily decisions.” said Lara Loveman, VP of US Operations at VIGILANT at the Bluetooth World Conference.

Rainbow is on sale through Amazon and usvigilant.com with apps for iOS and Android smartphones
