Narval: 100% digital

ResMed fortsätter att skapa innovationer inom behandling med orala hjälpmedel, med en lösning vars process nu är 100 % digital. Tack vare att intraoral skanning från 3Shape har integrerats i en befintlig CAD/CAM-process (CAD/CAM = datorstödd design och tillverkning) kan vi nu erbjuda tandläkare ännu högre kvalitet och bättre service för Narval CC-hjälpmedel.

From IOS to CAD/CAM: understand the Narval digital workflow

1. Scan upper and lower arches and process to bite registration

2. Send scans to ResMed via the scanner platform

3. Create your Narval Easy account and order the Narval appliance online

4. ResMed design (CAD) and manufacture (CAM) your patient’s appliance

5. Receive the appliance in just 10 working days!

Take advantage of Narval CAD/CAM technology

Thanks to CAD/CAM, Narval appliance design can easily be customised. Standardised processes and digital technology deliver high-quality appliances. Our CAD software simulates mandibular movements and calculates the retention forces and distribution for each patient. Devices are light but designed to be strong5 and durable4.

The Narval CC appliance produced using a CAD/CAM process is more effective in reducing AHI than a non-CAD/CAM MRD.
