SuperPowerMe: le maschere ortodontiche personalizzate diventano maschere per i supereroi

SuperPowerMe: le maschere ortodontiche personalizzate diventano maschere per i supereroi

SuperPowerMe is a co-design project to experiment with novel technologies and approaches to improve the orthodontic treatment of Class III malocclusion in children.
The project develops a personalised protraction facemask, modelled on the patient’s face to improve fitting and comfort, and embedded with sensors to monitor the therapy. The data about the wear time are used by a videogame to improve patients’ compliance: the more you wear the facemask, the more you gain powers to become a superhero, fight against the evil characters and save the fantastic world of Naturalia.
