Dentist Orthodontic Force Measurement
Home Problem Preliminary Fabrication Completed block

The Orthodontic Measurement System Senior Design Team is to design and fabricate a working prototype at the Rochester Institute of Technology. This prototype will be used to analyze the forces and moments on each simulated tooth created by a set of braces.

The defined requirements for this working model include:

  • It must be lighter than twenty pounds as it will be used for demonstration purposes.
  • It must have a simple computer interface, perhaps USB.
  • The arch must be the exact size of a normal human arch.
