E-Toothbrush / Electric Toothbrush


This concept is inspired from the experience of looking after my grandma who is not able to move. During the nursing time, I noticed that it is very hard for her to brush the teeth independently, and most of other patients ignored their tooth cleaning. So we design the E-Toothbrush which has millions of tentacles,using sonicare technology to create a hand-free tooth cleaning process.
Additionally, for the youth generation, who'd like to ignore their dental health, the E-Toothbrush can easily and healthily help them keep their teeth in good condition. Youth can even text their friends or post photos to Facebook while the tooth cleaning.

This product addresses a very real problem which often is embarrassing for a patient. It is a very innovative approach to find a solution for a problem that has not been adequately addressed before. It is very observant of the designer to chose this aspect of health care. The product is self explanatory and answers to the principles of universal design
