Tittle:
Disinfection or sterilization device for the oral hygiene toothbrushes
Summary:
An Italian entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience in the odontoiatric sector has patented a device that disinfects and sterilize toothbrushes. The invention consists in a system that uses UV sanitizing technology combined with a disinfectant liquid that allows to shorten the time for disinfecting. The inventor is looking for licence agreement with companies.
Description:
The Italian inventor, who has a longlasting experience in the odontoiatric sector (specifically in oral hygene and evidence based medicine) has patented an innovative system that allows to disinfect and sterilize one or more toothbrushes. The competitors´ systems, already on the market, are using the UV sanitizing technology, that requires a lot of time to sterilize the toothbrushes. If the customer need a quick sterilization, the UV light wouldn´t work properly. For this reason, the inventor patented this new system that combines UV sanitizing technology with a disinfectant liquid, that allows an immediate sanitization of the toothbrush.
The system is protected by a PCT and the inventor is looking to trasfer the technology for licence agreements with companies in Italy and abroad. The system has to be adapted in the company production process and after the industrialization phase it could be sold for domestic purposes (business to comsumer) or on large scale (business to business) to hotel chains, cruises, schools, hospitals. For this reason, the type of partner searched could be a SME or a larger industry, and operate either in the odontoiatric/medical equipment sector or furnitures manufaturers.
Advantages and Innovations:
The system is a combination of UV lights with disifection liquid and the advantage is that this allows both an immediate sterilization of the toothbrushes and a long lasting duration of it.
Another advantage is that the system is easy to industrialize and is based on technologies and components already avaliable on the market. There are no similar systems on the market and it is protected by a PCT.
The product is adrressed to every type of customer but is specially suggested to deseased, immuno-compromised and sensitive patients.
The reduced cost of the industrialized product would allow a distribution on a large scale.
The adoption of this tool in schools would have an evident social impact, too.
