Title: DEVICE FOR THE CALIBRATION OF A MASTICATORY SIMULATOR AND PROCESS FOR THE CALIBRATION OF SAID SIMULATOR
Abstract:
A device for the calibration of a masticatory simulator is disclosed, comprising sensing means (15) carried by a suitable support, movable on a sliding path (7) dimensioned so as to surround a patient (6) at a desired height thereof and it contains translation means of the sensing means (15) along said entire sliding path (7). A calibration process of a masticatory simulator is also disclosed, which provides to sense the landmarks of a patient' s head with a device as in any one of the preceding claims and to use them for the reconstruction thereof on said masticatory simulator. Finally, a masticatory simulator is disclosed, which is manufactured starting from the layout of the normotype, which has the opportunity of independently acting on the different landmarks thereof.
