Dentsply Sirona’s X-Smart IQ motor has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award for Design.
The Red Dot jury, composed of a combination of independent designers, design professors, and specialists, reviewed more 5,000 products from more than 50 countries and selected Dentsply Sirona’s X-Smart IQ motor as a winner.
The Red Dot judges said: ‘This endodontic motor impresses with its technical and aesthetic qualities. Its compact and functional design language lends the unit a premium and professional appearance’.
The IQ motor, a joint design effort between several internal teams from VDW, Maillefer, and ATR, is changing the way dental professionals think about endodontic motors.
According to Dentsply Sirona, the motor is sleek, ergonomic, powerful, and well balanced, making it a true departure from the current market of endodontic motors made up of desktop ‘tanks’ and ‘cheap and plastic’ cordless models.
Pairing the motor with the elegantly designed iPad Mini comes naturally and provides the user with a plethora of powerful features, such as patient education tools, electronic treatment reports, and Real Time Torque Monitoring (RTTM).
Dentsply Sirona’s X-Smart IQ motor is just the first step into the IQ platform, a vision that the company has of tying in the entire endodontic solution, which will eventually include irrigation and obturation solutions as well as additional diagnostic and software options.
