Our team is a multidisciplinary collaboration among School of Dentistry, Institute of Oral Medicine, Graduate School of Environmental and Occupational Health, Department of Industrial Design, Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Cheng Kung University and Department of Mechanical Engineering at Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology. The device was developed by combining the talent and specialties from various professions. Our team also works closely with Department of Stomatology at National Cheng Kung University Hospital to timely obtain first-hand feedback and input of clinical personnel.
Due to long-term exposure to a complex occupational environment with dust, chemicals or smoke, dentists and dental technicians may suffer from diseases of upper respiratory tract such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
The small-scale dental PM2.5 REDUCTION device developed by our team is the first of its kind, with a portable and light-weight design that can be efficiently applied to dental handpieces.
The small-scale PM 2.5 REDUCTION devices was realized by adding in-house developed particle controlling technology. This technology has been patented and proven that it can greatly increase the settling rate and removal efficiency of particles.
