A trip to the dentist becomes more like taking in a 3D movie with the new Cinema ProMed system, powered by the Carl Zeiss Cinemizer organic light-emitting diode screen.
The system was launched this week in the U.S. and Canada by Total 3D Solutions, the North American distribution partner for Carl Zeiss Group.
Cinema ProMed system enables dental offices to offer patients a completely immersive 2D or 3D video experience while they are in the dental chair, according to the companies. It is designed to help reduce anxiety by visually removing patients from the clinical surroundings and fully immersing them in a video.
The device features a high-contrast display, lightweight design, and personalized diopter settings to adjust focus individually for each patient. Patients can watch an assortment of 2D or 3D video content, including TV shows, video games, or informational programs provided by the dentist. They can also select their own favorites from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch by plugging their device into the Cinemizer. The system can also be connected to a PC, Mac, handheld touch device, Blu-ray player, or standard DVD player.
The Cinema ProMed system comes with integrated Sony overear headphones, an Apple connector kit, and optional iPod Touch device for playing digital video.
The system is available from Total 3D Solutions in the U.S. and Canada for $999.
