NXPeds creates hands-free computer controls

NXPeds eliminates problems associated with sterilizing and handling dental equipment in the operatory. Its convenient foot switches allow virtually any difficult computer or software keystrokes to be performed with ease and without using your hands.

NXPeds foot switches are ideal for controlling video frame capture from any intraoral camera. In the past, a dental assistant would be needed to perform a keystroke entry or icon-click to capture a frame. Now, NXPeds foot switches can be dedicated to that function and many more, including Control-Insert, Alternate-Tab, and other complicated key functions.

Click here to enlarge image

Designed for sterile, hands-free activation of software keyboard commands, NXPeds provides three foot switches on one unit with mechanical stops to prevent any accidental triggering of the wrong pedal. Separate "make" and "break" commands can effectively provide six functions. The switches can be programmed to perform up to approximately 900 keystrokes each saving time in the operatory.

Our one-click programming works flawlessly click after click, image after image.

NXPeds is ideal in any operatory where several sophisticated computer programs are running at once, for example: today's schedule, a patient's dental chart, intraoral cameras, education programs, and more. NXPeds' right, left, and center pedals can be easily programmed to eliminate time away from the patient and create a hands-free, sterile computer hardware and software environment in your operatory.

NXPeds not only assists the doctor in the operatory, but the doctor's assistant as well. (Both doctor and assistant having their own computer/software keystroke needs to be programmed by NXPeds.) NXPeds simply makes computer operation fluid, unencumbered, and easy. NXPeds includes software for Mac OS 8.6+, Windows XP, 2000, and 98/ME. USB port required.

Go virtually hands-free today! NXPeds - the next generation in input technology.

New composite matrix system

Before investing more time and effort trying to get tight contacts on posterior composite restorations, consider using the new sectional matrix system, Composi-Tight Gold™. Composi-Tight Gold, the successor of the original Composi-Tight, is the most recent version of sectional matrix systems by Garrison Dental Solutions.

Clean-air device kills bacteria and deodorizes

The Wein® Sani-Mate™ AS250B air sterilizer and deodorizer uses highly advanced corona-discharge technology developed to combat human disease microorganisms.

Contaminated air is drawn into the corona-discharge chamber and bombarded with ionized streams of electrons that destroy the pollutant molecules. At the same time, ozone produced in the corona oxidation-deodorizes any residual offensive gases in the outgoing pure-air stream. Purified air is ejected from the unit at more than 50 feet per minute.

Electron-impact decomposition of pollutants has been studied extensively at the UCLA School of Microbiology as well as by many other leading scientific laboratories in the United States and Japan (transcripts are available). Studies have shown that more than 90 percent of airborne bacteria are controlled by this advanced technology.

Click here to enlarge image

The Sani-Mate features easy installation - just plug it in; very compact and lightweight - just 3 ounces; economical - just pennies per week; no chemicals used; zero maintenance; one-year warranty; UL listed.

Orascoptic's "Guide to Purchasing Loupes"

Orascoptic, the market leader with innovative Flip-Up and Through-The-Lens (TTL) telescopes, has introduced a new technical brochure, "A professional's guide to purchasing loupes," that explains why Superior Visualization™ is the standard by which dental professionals should choose loupes. The brochure covers the five major features that professionals should use to qualify loupes: resolution, field width, field depth, weight, and magnifying power.

Superior Visualization is a concept that directs professionals to focus on the practical reason for choosing loupes - superior resolution across the entire field width, not just the magnifying power. The brochure notes that it is possible to experience poor visualization from substandard resolution even with higher powers of magnification. It further states that the best loupes capitalize on the synergy of resolution and field width.

According to the new brochure on Superior Visualization, Orascoptic's patented technology combined with lightweight frames delivers superior and comfortable visualization that will improve patient quality of care and practice productivity.
