Skudo: the invisible barrier against aerosols
There is no doubt that the problem of contaminated aerosols in dentistry sector has always been an important topic of discussion. Nowadays, more than ever, due to the new virus and to all those diseases that can be transmitted by air (just think of tuberculosis or pneumococcal pneumonia), we have understood how vital this topic is. We generally tend to protect ourselves only from direct contagion, underestimating the indirect types given by contaminated aerosols that spread throughout the dental clinic and remain on the surfaces for hours.
Various systems currently exist, however, all of them may have limits of intervention in the oral cavity, of operation, of vision of the operating field or of concentration due to noise, causing an increase in stress both for the operator and the patient.
For this reason Tecnomed Italia, with the aim of offering to dentists a practical, efficient, safe and cheap solution, has invested in technology and research. The result is SKUDO™, the definitive protection system against these invisible enemies.
SKUDO have an easy placement in any type of dental unit’s headrest. The rotation system makes it possible to switch SKUDO from right-handed position to left-handed position in only 5 minutes.
