Steri-Shield Releases New Wingers I.B. (Integrated Barrier)

Disposable bitewing features 3 products in one; sensor holder provides comfort-padded infection control barrier.

Unlike any other sensor positioner on the market today, the unique Wingers I.B. (Integrated Barrier)™ product provides a sensor holder already inside a comfort padded, elastic, seamless, infection control barrier.

This design reduces clinical set-up time to obtain a radiological image down from approximately 60 seconds to 5 seconds with average cost savings over purchasing 3 separate items of up to 20 percent, according to Steri-Shield. The seamless, elastic barrier eliminates micro holes which may occur in the heat-sealed seams of plastic film sensor barriers.

The Wingers I.B. fits all # 2 sensor holders on the market, and each bag of 60 pieces includes a free, sterilizable aimer ring and bar.

Steri-Shield introduced its first infection control barriers into the dental industry more than 3 decades ago and currently has a wide variety of digital sensor holders and positioning systems for x-ray designed to capture all oral images in a quick, easy and pain-free way.
