System Combines Registration of Pressure Distribution of Occlusal Surfaces

Richard Gawel


The Bausch OccluSense system combines the traditional and digital registration of the pressure distribution of the occlusal surfaces. The OccluSense handheld is a battery-powered device that uses a local wireless network to transfer the recorded data to the OccluSense iPad app. The inductive charger provides a wireless power transfer. Fully charged batteries allow the usage of the device for up to 4 hours.

The 60-µm OccluSense Electronic Pressure Sensor is used just like traditional occlusion test materials. It enables the recording of masticatory forces at 256 pressure levels. Thin and flexible material permits the recording of the static and the dynamic occlusion. Additionally, the red color coating marks the occlusal contacts on the patient’s teeth.

The data from the occlusal masticatory distribution are displayed with the iPad app. The traditional color transfer on the occlusal surfaces facilitates the assignment of the recorded data. All data that can be displayed is from 2-D and 3-D graphics, including the masticatory distribution, with up to 150 images per second. It can be stored in the patient management system of the iPad app and reviewed or exported any time.
