DC-Air, which is distributed in the United States by Freedom Technologies Group, creates a wireless intraoral sensor for digital x-rays.
Athlos Oy has received 510(k) acceptance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its DC-Air digital x-ray sensor technology. Distributed in the United States by Freedom Technologies Group (FTG), DC-Air creates a wireless intraoral sensor for digital x-rays. The sensors feature Bluetooth and direct-conversion technology.
FTG—which is a joint venture between Finland-based Athlos Oy; dentist Robert Sachs, DDS; dental-industry consultant David Hanning; and group of private investors—is now accepting pre-orders online.
Sachs, FTG’s chief clinical officer, said, “The DC-Air is the first digital sensor to match the resolution of film and the comfort and convenience of phosphor plates. It does so in a more durable and easier-to-use package. It took years of work with direct input from leading physicists and clinicians on the cutting edge of dental technology to develop, test, and refine DC-Air to the world class product it is today. Over the past few weeks, since FDA approval, beta-testing of the DC-Air has received stellar feedback from practitioners and patients alike.”
