The TheraMon® microsensor measures 9 x 13 mm in size and once activated starts to sample in regular intervals the wearing of the braces and stores those measurement values into the integrated memory.

The microsensor will be embedded into the brace by the lab technician and is covered entirely with dental plastic material. A direct contact to the patients mucosa is not possible.

To send and receive data the microsensor uses RFID technology (Radio Frequency Indentification). This way the reading station emitts a magnetic field of very short range which enables the sensor to transfer data. The antenna of the sensor can only be activated, if it is positioned near the reading station (approx. 2-3 cm) - in the mouth of the patient the antenna is not active and can not emitt any radiation.

TheraMon® microsensors are designed for single use only. The lifetime of microsensors is geared to the typical lifetime of an orthodontic appliance and is granted over a minimum period of 18 month. To enable evaluation over the entire treatment, several sensors of a single patient can be combined in the TheraMon® Software.
