Another TCD spin-out, SelfSense Technologies is an NDRC-based company creating dental devices that diagnose and monitor tooth grinding (bruxism). Called a SmartSplint, SelfSense’s device has a sensor in a dental splint, tracking movements and delivering information directly to a dentist.

The company originated in TCD’s AMBER research centre, with more than €700,000 in grant funding secured from Enterprise Ireland, SFI and the Health Research Board.

SelfSense recently presented its SmartSplint at the Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics 62nd Scientific Meeting. Meanwhile, the SmartSplint is expected for release in the UK early this year. It is currently being trialled in the Dublin Dental Hospital and in private practice in Ireland.
