Produktdesign C3 thermo coagulator, 2017

C3 thermo coagulator, 2017


Unlike cryotherapy, which uses cold temperatures to ablate tissue, thermo coagulation uses heat to destroy tissue. The technology has a clinical appeal because it is user-friendly, inexpensive, and durable. The system runs entirely on electrical power and requires no gas to operate. The treatment is fast, easy to learn and the equipment has a low dependency on a service infrastructure.The treatment requires generally no local anaesthesia and is administered within a very short treatment cycle (< 2 Minutes). The device is fairly simple to use and does not require long enduring and costly training for an operator to understand how it is done properly. Other features are the LED illumination for a better visibility and the heat protection for a safe and painless entry.

The ergonomics of the handgrip and the resettable heat protection were optimized by the Eckstein Design team in several studies. Even after hours the coagulator rests comfortably in the hand and achieves a good and precise result. An intelligently placed user interface allows to keep an eye on all important functions.

The design's style and light-weight and top quality choice of materials supports the articulator's ergonomic geometry.

Produktdesign 3M ESPE Dental Retraction Capsule, 2013

Dental Retraction Capsule, 2013


This retraction capsule was developed for the artificial retraction of gingiva from the tooth neck. By using contrasts of matte and glossy surfaces, but also relief-like height differences, it renders the impression of a high-quality product at first glance. The cylindrical shape with rounded edges provides pleasant haptics and a well-controlled grip. The asymmetric fin underlines the friendly character of the capsule. Upon retraction, the tapered and elongated capsule tip can be easily inserted into the sulcus without injury. The conical geometry allows for easy mechanical displacement of the tissue. In addition, the attached orientation ring simplifies precise intra-oral handling.

Statement by the jury »In designing this retraction capsule, the smallest details of use were considered for every single future working step.«

Produktdesign 3M ESPE Scotchbond™, 2012

Scotchbond™, 2012


The dispensing system of the Scotchbond Universal Adhesive simplifies workflow in modern dentistry and leads to optimised results. The reduced form of the vial body with high-contrast colour variations culminates in the sweeping curves of the deep blue, extra-large locking lever. This enables intuitive, one-handed use of the product. Moreover, the swing lid features a bistable film hinge that locks into a stretched dispensing position when the lid is opened. This ensures an unhindered view of the vial tip for precise dosage during application. An audible clicking sound indicates the closing of the vial, thus protecting the adhesive.

Statement by the jury »The ergonomically shaped dropper vial has been optimised for one-handed use. It enables the user to precisely determine the dispensed amount of the valuable liquid. «
