COLOGNE, Germany/PARGAS, Finland: Dental clinics worldwide face daily challenges with regard to material handling and traceability, as well as increasing requirements for patient safety and documentation. Logistics and instrument maintenance too could be managed better and more effectively. In response to these needs, Finnish manufacturer LM-Dental has developed a tracking system, which will be on display during the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne in Germany next month.

The LM Dental Tracking System is the first commercially available system to use radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to efficiently track and monitor instruments and materials in the dental industry. An advanced RFID chip integrated into the LM-ErgoSense handle enables reliable traceability of the instrument. The chip is scanned with a reader, which, combined with software, constitutes the unique dental tracking system.

The readers give visibility to chipped instruments and materials at dental clinics, both in maintenance and clinical care. The information is sent to a server that provides clinicians with clear traceability of the instruments and materials, including their location and by whom and on which patient they have been used. The software generates analytical reports about the items registered on the system, aimed at improving material handling, increasing cost efficiency, and helping to ensure that only safe and clean instruments are used and thereby elevating patient safety to a whole new level.

LM-Dental develops, produces and markets high-tech dental hand instruments and its tracking system, as well as ultrasonic devices, orthodontic appliances and more. It is one of the fastest-growing manufacturers of hand instruments in Europe and the market leader in the Nordic countries. All of its products are made in Finland and Sweden. LM-Dental is part of the Planmeca Group.

During IDS, visitors can find LM-Dental in Hall 11.1 (Booth F030 G031).
