KaVo introduces new digital X-ray sensor

February 22, 2018

The DEXIS FS Ergo is said to redefine patient comfort and create a new class of digital sensors.

KaVo Kerr unveiled the expansion of its growing portfolio of imaging solutions at this year’s Chicago Midwinter dental meeting with the new DEXIS FS Ergo by KaVo. Built upon the award-winning DEXIS PerfectSize™sensor and TrueComfort™ design, the FS Ergo is said to stand as the latest innovation to redefine patient comfort and create a new class of digital sensors.

FS Ergo reportedly combines innovative design and skillfully engineered components to add ease and flexibility to the patient experience. The sensor is said to provide significant improvements in comfort for patients with low tolerance for standard intraoral modalities, allowing for a more pleasant sensor placement that patients will remember. A robust, durable device that maintains optimal image integrity, FS Ergo features:

  • Sensor Housing – resistant to bite marks, the submersible sensor housing can also withstand a wide variety of disinfection chemicals.

  • Cable-To-Sensor Connection – equipped with connectivity proven successful under rigorous testing to such forces as pulling, twisting, straining, and bending.

  • USB Connector – built to withstand high frequency insertion and pulling cycles, the USB connection adds to the overall durability of the sensor.

  • Contoured Positioning System – made from advanced materials, the positioning system allows the sensor to easily exit and protects the longevity of the cable from wear and tear.

DEXIS FS Ergo by KaVo is designed to help to reduce retakes due to patient movement caused by discomfort thereby enhancing practice efficiency and creating a streamlined digital workflow. By pairing the newly developed flexible sensor technology with a soft housing, FS Ergo can “give” as X-rays are being captured. Even the proprietary holder system is uniquely designed to accommodate the flex of the sensor so that it can adapt to your patient, and thus offer the best radiographic experience possible.

DEXIS products have always instilled confidence in patients and practitioners, and FS Ergo by KaVo will reinforce their beliefs,” states Insiyah Ahmedi, senior marketing manager, KaVo Kerr Intraoral Imaging. “The complete line of DEXIS imaging products has continually displayed the ability to innovate and excite with digital solutions that consistently provide highly diagnostic information crucial for patient care."

Dental professionals are encouraged to experience how the FS Ergo can work for them by visiting KaVo at the 2018 Chicago Midwinter dental meeting at Booth #1500.
