Title
(EN) ARBITRARY MOTION TOOTHBRUSH
(FR) BROSSE À DENTS À MOUVEMENTS ARBITRAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus which permits arbitrary, relative motions of a distal end of a toothbrush and/or flosser with respect to a handle. Said motions are selectable by a user in real time by a selection switch. The toothbrush herein includes an elongated body used as a handle, and smaller elongated member serving as the toothbrush post. A mechanism mechanically couples said handle to said toothbrush post member permitting relative translational movement of said toothbrush post with respect to said handle.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil qui permettent des mouvements relatifs arbitraires d'une extrémité distale d'une brosse à dents et/ou d'un porte-soie dentaire par rapport à une poignée. Ces mouvements peuvent être choisis par un utilisateur en temps réel par le biais d'un commutateur de sélection. La brosse à dents selon l'invention comprend un corps allongé servant de manche, et un élément allongé plus petit servant de montant à brosse à dents. Un mécanisme accouple mécaniquement ladite poignée audit montant à brosse à dents pour permettre un mouvement de translation relatif dudit montant à brosse à dents par rapport audit manche.
