Touchscreen for dental surgeons

Osstell's “IDx” is such a specialized product that most people do not even know it exists. It uses ultrasonic pulses to measure the stability of dental implants, and is thus an aid for dental surgeons to follow up the healing process after surgery. The entire unit is controlled via a touch screen where we at Republic have designed the interface from the ground up.


Osstell manufactures instruments for dental diagnostics. With their product, dental surgeons can determine the status of a dental implant. Osstell is headquartered in Gothenburg and a subsidiary in the USA. The company is active through distributors all over the world.

It is an excit­ing chal­lenge to work with such niche prod­ucts with spe­cif­ic uses, and make sure that the entire process from start-up, mea­sure­ment, and man­age­ment of patient data becomes as sim­ple and flex­i­ble as pos­si­ble for the sur­geon who will use the instru­ment in their every­day lives.

We also find it extra fun that Osstell took the help of tal­ent­ed indus­tri­al design­ers to cre­ate a prod­uct that feels mod­ern, styl­ish and well thought out all the way.
