According to the company, the appliance will now be known as PowerScope 2 and will feature improvements, such as a thicker, more robust attachment nut for increased strength and durability, wider slot tolerance with mesial-distal chamfer for easier wire insertion, and enhanced activation indicators for quick reference during the activation process.
