OrbO is a revolutionary light source which mounts on to the saliva ejector or suction tube and.which enables total illumination of the oral cavity from the inside.
It is a tiny, yet very powerful light source for illuminating the oral cavity while treating the patient.
OrbO is a miniature U-shaped clip which comes in 2 different sizes and which attaches to the saliva ejector or the suction tube. It is equipped with 2 powerful high brightness LED’s which provide illumination of more than 2000 ft-candles.
Dental researches show a clear correlation between the amount of light inside the oral cavity during treatment and the success of the treatment. When operated, the OrbO will almost double the amount of light you have in the oral cavity.
The OrbO light source “sits” on the suction tube or saliva ejector and can be adjusted according to the requirements and comfort of the dentist. It is set at an ergonomic angle to illuminate the whole oral cavity including the far side.
OrbO is powered by a power cord which is the “brain” behind the light. The power cord consists of a unique electronic design which stabilizes output to the power source and thus provides stable light intensity throughout the entire treatment.
The power cord utilizes Velcro to latch on to the suction tube or saliva ejector. The cord is thin and flexible and does not interfere with the dentist while working. The cord is robust and can be left on the hosing permanently.
Following are some of the advantages of OrbO compared with a Head Lamp:
|Patient’s comfort||Blinding||Non blinding|
|Dentist’s comfort||Can cause neck and back pain or stiffness||No pain|
|Angle of illumination||Frontal. Hands and tools can block light||From side. No light path blocking|
|Noise level||Slight “fan” sound on dentist’s forehead.||Silent|
OrbO has the following technical features:
Light intensity: Approimately 2500 ft-candles
Light life: Approximately 50.000 hours
Power: Socket driven through power cord.
Operation: Hands Free
