Teggy

HDTI logo

Patients who cannot clean their own teeth and mouth need assistance from nurses and healthcare assistants. Standard toothbrushes can be hard, inflexible and cause dryness in the mouth. This makes it more difficult for staff to help patients, making their mouths painful and uncomfortable.

The award winning Teggy mouth brush, developed by HDTI for nursing staff of University Hospital, Coventry, includes a water reservoir in its base that, when squeezed, sends a mist of water into the patient’s mouth via small holes in the brush head.

Teggy also features a flexible angled neck and a hygienic cover to protect the head. HDTI delivered concept design, design development, CAD modelling, visualisation and prototyping. The Teggy is now undergoing further development to bring it to market.
