Study on the effectiveness of ErgoFinger® on the patient disabled to improve the comfort of the professional oral hygiene session at Insubria University Varese, Italy.
Serena Viggiano studied the ErgoFinger® HVE effectiveness in the oral care of a disabled patient. The study involved 17 Dental Hygienist students and 115 patients, including 70 patients with various levels of mental disability and 45 patients with other physical or mental limitations. Through the study results, the preference to use ErgoFinger® in treating disabled patients was found with great success. It was possible to improve the quality and comfort of the session for both the operator and the patient treated. ErgoFinger® proved to be more effective and comfortable than a standard HVE tip. The main conclusion is that the use of ErgoFinger® can be recommended for treating disabled patients.
