iBite - Bite Force Sensor Solution

iBite is the World's first Digital Bite Force Sensing solution that makes it easy to measure bite strength of patients before and after dental procedures. The iBite kit includes a force sensor with a comfortable biting surface, a USB or Wireless (XBee, WiFi or BLE) digital interface and LoadVUE Pro software. The software works on any Windows PC or Tablet and lets a user capture, display, log and plot the force vs. time data. The sensor comes pre-calibrated with a NIST traceable calibration certificate included.

The Challenge

iBite- Bite Force Sensor

There is no good easy to use and reliable tool to measure the bite force of a person. Or even of animals. This information can be very useful to characterize dental and maxillofacial issues.

  • With a easy to use digital force measurement tool, a physician or physical therapist can quantitatively track the progress of the patient before and after dental procedures or physical therapy.

What is included in the bite force kit?

  • The iBite Bite Force Measurement Kit comes with everything you need to perform your testing. It includes:

    - One REB5-100M-S Miniature Load Cell
  • - One Set of Specially Designed Tongs 
  • - One DI-1000U USB or DI-1000ZP Wireless Interface
  • - One Copy of LoadVUE Pro (LV-1000) Software
  • - One Calibration Service in Compression
    - One Calibration Certificate
    - One USB Output Cable

iBite Sensor with 24-Bit USB Interface

The USB Kit comes with the sensor, a USB interface and LoadVUE Pro software. You simply connect the USB connector of the output cable into a PC and run the software to use it. One can put a disposable plastic cover over the sensor to prevent saliva from damaging the sensor and to make it sterile for each user.

iBite Sensor with Wireless Interface

We also offer a wireless kit. In this case, the sensor is mated with a wireless DI-1000ZP which has a built in rechargeable battery and can be used cordlessly for between 1-2 hours per charge. The transmitter is built into the DI-1000ZP and a receiver dongle with a USB connector is provided as part of the kit. Both the USB and wireless kits come precalibrated and ready to use with a calibration certificate traceable to NIST standards.
