Another new product I saw in Chicago was a new voice activated system from Florida Probe.
Florida Probe has long been a favorite product of mine for many reasons. With the new voice system they have added a third way to input periodontal charting data to a digital patient record.
Voice activated perio has been around for some time and has had limited acceptance. However voice recognition technology is improving all the time and the new Florida Probe wireless headset is easy to use and easy to train. See the demo below:
The three entry systems are direct input using the digital probe, a remote number pad called go-probe and now voice. In fact there is a fourth option using the probe and voice together in a “hybrid” option.
