Recently, much attention has been paid to the problem of noise pollution. Apple even added this metric to the Health app and tracked ambient noise on the Watch. And one of the sources of problems is electric toothbrushes. We’ll tell you if this can be solved.
Most electric toothbrushes make more than 60 decibels of noise. It turns out that this very fact is a common reason for refusal to purchase or stop using an already purchased brush. According to surveys, there are three problems: noise causes anxiety, disturbs family members, and also results in shorter brushing times. As a consequence, the risk of problems increases and the satisfaction with the product decreases. The problem with noise is especially relevant for young people who are more often interested in technological products, but at the same time live in small apartments, where loud sounds can really be inconvenient.
At the moment, the market for electric brushes is arranged in such a way that many manufacturers put only the cleanliness of their teeth in the first place and do not pay attention to other parameters of their products. Even for oral health experts like Philips and Oral-B, the brushes are not quiet. To solve this problem, Oclean specialists decided to use new technologies and release the ultra-quiet Oclean Air2 brush. At its peak volume, it produces a sound of only 45 decibels, which is only 5 dB higher than the noise of a mosquito flying by.
How it works? The noise of an electric toothbrush is generated by the rotation of the motor, which causes vibrations in the cabinet and the movement of the cleaning head. Oclean decided to use active ultrasonic noise cancellation and implement the complete mute technology in Air2. Due to the ultrasonic range of 20,000 Hz, the noise emitted by the brush exceeds the sensitivity of the human ear. You cannot physically hear how it works. Oclean believes that silent or minimal noise brushes should become the standard in the market. At the same time, the company does not think that they should be the only ones who use these technologies. They urge the industry to rethink the value of brush noise to shoppers, improve the user experience of products and, as a result, the quality of oral hygiene.
