Align Technology Announces Next Generation iTero(R) Element(TM) Intraoral Scanner
"We have combined the accuracy and broad clinical indications of the iTero scanner's advanced capabilities with a simple and intuitive system that is designed to deliver an unparalleled customer experience," said
New Smaller Design with Enhanced Wand and Display Features
The new iTero Element Scanner is designed to offer two compact space-saving form factors, a 40% smaller and lighter wand that features built-in controls and a 19" high-definition, multi-touch display, and integrated gyro technology for rotation of models on screen. In addition, the ITO defogging system instantly defogs the wand.
Designed for Faster Scan Speed and Enhanced User Experience
The new image sensor is engineered to enable 20X faster scan speed with color scanning to easily distinguish between gingival and dental tissue for more precise clinical evaluation. Additionally, iTero Element scans are designed to work with the existing iTero orthodontic and restorative workflows, including laboratory workflows, custom milled models, open STL export, custom implant abutment and chairside milling partners.
Exclusive Integration of Invisalign Treatment Application
Designed to offer the best workflow to the Invisalign system, iTero Element includes the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, an exclusive chair-side application that allows doctors to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment.
Availability of the iTero Element Intraoral Scanner is expected in the second half of 2015.
