Title (EN) FORCE-SENSING TOOTHBRUSH
(FR) BROSSE À DENTS À DÉTECTION DE FORCE
Abstract:
(EN) A toothbrush comprises a head including a plurality of cleaning elements attached to the head, a handle, a neck extending between the head and the handle, a motor unit including a motor and a manual winder for manually energizing the motor, and a force sensor configured to detect a user-applied force exceeding a predetermined threshold force, wherein the force sensor causes the toothbrush to produce at least one of an audible signal and a tactile signal when the user-applied force exceeds a predetermined threshold force. An audible signal and a tactile signal may comprise, respectively, muting of the motor and interruption of vibration of the toothbrush.
(FR) L'invention concerne une brosse à dents comprenant une tête comportant une pluralité d'éléments de nettoyage fixés à la tête, un manche, un col s'étendant entre la tête et le manche, une unité motorisée comprenant un moteur et un enrouleur manuel pour alimenter manuellement le moteur, et un capteur de force configuré pour détecter une force appliquée par l'utilisateur dépassant une force seuil prédéterminée, le capteur de force amenant la brosse à dents à produire au moins un signal parmi un signal tactile et un signal sonore lorsque la force appliquée par l'utilisateur dépasse une force seuil prédéterminée. Un signal sonore et un signal tactile peuvent comprendre, respectivement, l'atténuation du son du moteur et l'interruption des vibrations de la brosse à dents.
