The LM Dental Tracking System™ allows you to track and monitor instruments and materials using RFID technology. Instruments, handpieces, filling materials, implants etc from different manufacturers are wirelessly read in a few seconds. Automating traceability, logistics and infection control documentation, allows staff to work more efficiently and focus on the patient. Internet of things*) in dentistry enables gathering and analyzing big data for constant improvement of processes, workflows and cost efficiency.
- The server is used to record, track and verify usage cycles of activities made to articles registered in the system.
- The readers record activities on the server and get configurations from the server. Users can be given access to the server in order to access browser-based user interface, e.g. to view logs and configure the system.
- The articles registered to the system can be different kinds of hand instruments and/or materials. All LM-ErgoSense hand instruments are automatically entered into the system by performing an activity on the reader.
*) The internet of things is when objects are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network. A thing can be a person with a heart monitor implant or now a dental instrument with a RFID tag. The intelligence inside the instruments can offer many benefits for the dental clinic.
