Title (DE) SENSOR UND SYSTEM ZUR ÜBERWACHUNG DER TRAGEDAUER VON KIEFERORTHOPÄDISCHEN GUMMIZÜGEN
(EN) SENSOR AND SYSTEM FOR MONITORING THE WEARING DURATION OF ORTHODONTIC ELASTICS
(FR) CAPTEUR ET SYSTÈME POUR SURVEILLER LA DURÉE DU PORT D'ÉLASTIQUES ORTHODONTIQUES
Abstract:
(DE) Es wird ein Sensor (1) zur Befestigung an einer Multibracket-Apparatur für den Oberkiefer (2), an einer Multibracket-Apparatur für den Unterkiefer (3), an einem Aligner für den Oberkiefer (2') und/oder an einem Aligner für den Unterkiefer (3') beansprucht, um die Zeitspanne zu messen, während welcher eine Kraft auf einen Druck-, Zug- und/oder Scherkraftsensor (11) des Sensors (1) ausgeübt wird, wodurch die Tragedauer von kieferorthopädischen Gummizügen (4) für Multibracket-Apparaturen (2, 3) und/oder Aligner (2', 3') überwacht werden kann, wobei der Sensor (1) ein von der Multibracket-Apparatur (2, 3) und den Brackets (23) unabhängiger Sensor ist, einen Timer, einen Mikrokontroller mit Datenspeicher sowieeine Gummizug-Halterung (16) und/oder Gummizug-Führung (17) umfasst. Beansprucht wird auch ein System (5) zur Überwachung der Tragedauer von kieferorthopädischen Gummizügen, umfassend den Sensor (1), eine Multibracket-Apparatur oder einen Aligner für den Oberkiefer (2, 2') und den Unterkiefer (3, 3'), sowie einen Gummizug (4) und ein externes Lesegerät. Zudem wird auch ein Verfahren zum Überwachen der Tragedauer von kieferorthopädischen Gummizügen sowie die Verwendung des Sensors (1) und des Systems (5) beansprucht.
(EN) The invention relates to a sensor (1) for fastening to a multi-bracket appliance for the upper jaw (2), to a multi-bracket appliance for the lower jaw (3), to an aligner for the upper jaw (2') and/or to an aligner for the lower jaw (3'), in order to measure the time span during which a force is applied to a pressure, tension and/or shear-force sensor (11) of the sensor (1), whereby the wearing duration of orthodontic elastics (4) for multi-bracket appliances (2, 3) and/or aligners (2', 3') can be monitored, the sensor (1) being a sensor that is independent of the multi-bracket appliance (2, 3) and the brackets (23) and comprising a timer, a microcontroller having a data memory, and an elastic holder (16) and/or elastic guide (17). The invention further relates to a system (5) for monitoring the wearing duration of orthodontic elastics, comprising the sensor (1), a multi-bracket apparatus or an aligner for the upper jaw (2, 2') and the lower jaw (3, 3'), an elastic (4) and an external reading device. The invention further relates to a method for monitoring the wearing duration of orthodontic elastics and to the use of the sensor (1) and of the system (5).
(FR) L'invention revendique un capteur (1) destiné à être fixé à un appareil multibracket pour la mâchoire supérieure (2), à un appareil multibracket pour la mâchoire inférieure (3), à un dispositif d'alignement pour la mâchoire supérieure (2') et/ou à un dispositif d'alignement pour la mâchoire inférieure (3'), pour mesurer la durée pendant laquelle une force est exercée sur un capteur de force de compression, de traction et/ou de cisaillement (11) du capteur (1), ce qui permet de surveiller la durée du port d'élastiques orthodontiques (4) pour des appareils multibracket (2, 3) et/ou des dispositifs d'alignement (2', 3'), le capteur (1) étant un capteur indépendant de l'appareil multibracket (2, 3) et des brackets (23) et comprenant un compteur, un microcontrôleur pourvu d'une mémoire de données ainsi qu'un dispositif de fixation d'élastiques (16) et/ou un dispositif de guidage d'élastiques (17). L'invention concerne également un système (5) pour surveiller la durée du port d'élastiques orthodontiques, comprenant le capteur (1), un appareil multibracket ou un dispositif d'alignement pour la mâchoire supérieure (2, 2') et la mâchoire inférieure (3, 3') ainsi qu'un élastique (4) et un appareil de lecture externe. En outre, l'invention revendique également un procédé pour surveiller la durée du port d'élastiques orthodontiques ainsi que l'utilisation du capteur (1) et du système (5).
