KaVo introduces COMFORTdrive high-speed handpiece

Aug. 21, 2009
Handpiece features patented micro-motor technology.

LAKE ZURICH, Illinois--Kavo Dental North America introduces the COMFORTdrive 200 XDR high-speed handpiece that features patented micro-motor technology.

Doctors who prefer an air handpiece for its lightweight and ergonomics, as well as practitioners who appreciate an electric for its precision cutting and quieter sound, will see that COMFORTdrive offers a blend of performance, ergonomics and quiet operation.

COMFORTdrive offers precise cutting performance with bur concentricity to assist with faster and smoother preps. The no-bur-stall feature of COMFORTdrive improves efficiency in gross reductions and crown and bridge preparations. The SAFEdrive technology features an integrated sterilizable motor that delivers 30 watts of constant power for consistent performance.

COMFORTdrive's patented design weighs approximately 40% less and is 15% shorter than market-leading electric options. The integrated motor reduces the distal area length after the pivot point in the doctor's hand allowing for a degree of comfort and control. The COMFORTdrive operates at only 55 dB.

The COMFORTdrive system features a "Plug-n-Prep" auto-calibration technology for easy setup that does not require adjustment to any other equipment in the office. Once calibrated, the COMFORTdrive system allows for an air-like
"feathering" effect between 30,000-200,000 rpm with the foot pedal.

Therefore, doctors who use air-driven handpieces can seamlessly transition to COMFORTdrive with no learning curve. The tiny footprint of the COMFORTdrive system incorporates into any operatory, offering an esthetic, clean look. The COMFORTdrive system will be available as an integrated option into the Pelton & Crane Spirit 3000 series of delivery units in 2010.
