Collis Curve - the toothbrush for the disabled

Disability comes in many forms and offers many challenges to good dental health. Something as simple and as painful as arthritis of the hands means that people find it very difficult to duplicate the rather complicated brushing techniques taught by dentists. Deteriorating vision may mean that people have to rely on simple sensation when they come to attend to tooth brushing. These afflictions are two simple examples of a gamut of the kind of disabilities that compromise an individual's independence.
The Collis Curve acts very positively in these circumstances. As long as the brusher can get the toothbrush into their mouth and move it backwards and forwards it will provide thorough cleaning.
