AutoBrush for Kids – A Smart Toothbrush

The Assistive Technology at Easter Seals Crossroads in their weekly AT reviews offers another interesting tool, the AutoBrush for Kids.  As an occupational therapist, tools for self cares are always helpful and learning about new oral hygiene tools always seems to be timely when servicing kids with special needs, whether young or older.

The AutoBrush for Kids is an electric toothbrush that comes in two sizes, one for 3-7 year olds and another for 8 years and up. Brushes lining the inside the mouth piece brush are on both sides which clean the teeth. The mouth piece is placed in mouth and cleans both upper and lower teeth at the same time. Here’s a quick video on the AutoBrush for Kids:

With the purchase of the base unit, replacement mouth brushes can be purchased and both sizes will work with the sam base unit. You have a choice of four animals to choose from. The base charger comes with the AutoBrush for Kids with cost at approximately $89.00 on Amazon. Although the price is a bit steep, it might be worth it for some children when toothbrushing is a challenge due to sensory or motor skills.
