Connected Orthordontic treatment device
The Biolux Research OrthoPulse cuts brace and clear aligner treatment time in half. Biolux Research partnered with Product Creation Studio (PCS) to develop their professional photobiomodulation (PBM) technology for the at-home market. FDA approved, ergonomic and portable, OrthoPulse creates smiles twice as fast by using low levels of light energy to stimulate the bone surrounding the roots of your teeth and facilitate tooth movement.

A Concept that Will Make You Grin
PCS crafted OrthoPulse with user needs at the heart of the design. Workflow research, mouth ergonomics and rapid trial and error guided the engineering and design team to create a waterproof, easy to clean, mouthpiece with an innovative flexible LED array that comfortably accommodates a wide fit range. When not in use or when travelling, OrthoPulse charges and dries in its own vented case protected from dust and dirt. Rapid healing technology and easy day to day use, what’s not to smile about?
Biolux Research needed their proof-of-concept prototype moved to an engineered, user centric solution, ready for production, and ready for regulatory approvals. PCS lives in the medical device and product development space with a start-up mentality and we were able to deliver vetted, designed, tool ready files for both the mouthpiece and charging case in under 3 months. We then assisted and coordinated manufacturing suppliers through the production phase and on to a smooth launch.
Built for a Global Market
OrthoPulse is a first-of-its-kind orthodontic PBM device built for consumers. PCS developed OrthoPulse to achieve regulatory approval for the international markets targeted by Biolux Research. Our team developed OrthoPulse to meet and achieve requirements for FDA approval, Health Canada Medical Device Licensing, and the European CE mark. OrthoPulse passed on all fronts, enabling Biolux Research to scale their business to both domestic and international markets.
