Hands Free Solution for Perio Charting – Boomer: The Foot Mouse for Hygienists | Dental R.A.T.


This is Travis Rodgers with I LUV My Dentist,
I’m here with Becky from Dental R.A.T. Thanks for joining us Becky. Sure. So tell us about Dental R.A.T. Well, it’s a foot-operated mouse so big mouse,
rat, so that the hygienists can perio chart by themselves. So, I was a hygienist for 25 years, and I
got frustrated with always having to wait for a second person to help me perio chart. Nobody wants to help the hygienist, we’re
always like the last one, like “help us”. So anyway, I saw my kids with those Playstation
Dance Dance things and I thought if I could just perio chart and tap my numbers on the
floor, I think I could have something. So we ended up getting patents for all foot-operated
data entry. And basically it plugs in wirelessly and runs
any software. So whatever the office has, this is my mouse. Left mouse click, numbers 1, 2, 3, 4. If I hold them down longer it’s 5, 6, 7, and
8. It’s really simple. Really simple, but really effective, so hands-free,
allows the hygienist and team to really just do their work as a single person rather than
having multiple people while their charting, genius. Well, Becky so, so anything new, I see you
have another product here. You have a three button mouse as well. Yeah, so this last year, a lot of dentists
have said “well I want one in my room too”, so we developed one that’s just a mouse, no
numbers. So for those times when their opening their
x-rays, running their internal camera, checking their schedule and they don’t want to de-glove
and grab a hand mouse. So this is basically a foot-operated mouse,
but this one also goes into the general public for anybody who can’t use their hands. So, we’ve got people in medical, anybody with
arthritis, carpal tunnel, and they can’t use a regular hand mouse. So they’re able to run the computer now, and
get back to work. Great, well what an ingenious invention, I
love it. So how does our audience get in touch with
you? dentalrat.com, and our numbers are on there,
yeah. Alright, well thanks Becky, appreciate your
time, good to see you again. Thank you, you too.
