REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--uLab Systems, the creator of the innovative aligner planning software, announced the achievement of another significant milestone with over 13,000 cases planned in less than one year.
Last summer, uLab launched a pilot program to receive market feedback on their chairside movement planning software. The market response has been exceptional with over 13,000 cases planned. These cases include aligner cases, hybrid cases, and combo cases – all planned by the orthodontist right in their office. Doctors have been quick to adopt the software and have easily integrated uLab into their workflow. In fact, uLab users are able to create movement plans in as little as 10 minutes. Many with 3D printers are even able to offer same day aligners, bringing efficiency and increased patient satisfaction to their practice.
Dr. Chad Rowan of Rowan Orthodontics in Merced, CA, was one of the early pilot orthodontists. “We have loved having uLab as a partner in our practice. It has filled a need we have had in our business where we previously did not have great alternatives. Just yesterday we had a former patient that was home from college who lost her retainers and experienced significant relapse, ask us what she should do. She was returning to school in Arizona that day, and between her morning appointment at 11 we were able to reconstruct her smile in uLab and manufacture her 12 aligners before we closed in the afternoon at 5. Awesome!”
Charlie Wen, President and CTO of uLab states, “We are thrilled to see our vision of giving control back to the orthodontists come to life in the marketplace. We are constantly working to make better movement planning software for efficient in-office printing. In fact, we will be sharing the latest 4.0 version of the uLab software and preview of next version, at the upcoming American Association of Orthodontists tradeshow. The software has a host of new features driven by feedback from orthodontists in our pilot program. The most prominent new feature is our advanced artificial intelligence - with one click of a button it automatically prepares everything you need to move teeth and even learns your preferences over time to simplify future set ups. With this AI addition also comes a feature to quickly create the first three aligners as well as the finishing retainer. In addition, we will show our one of a kind indirect bonding tray which is sure to help with your bracket-based cases. Also, at AAO, we’ll demonstrate our uContour machine, the first of its kind, automated aligner trimming machine that completes the task in under a minute. We hope to see you at AAO booth #1247 for a hands-on demonstration of the software and uContour.”
uLab is actively preparing to expand their launch by offering new licenses to orthodontists at the AAO annual meeting in May.
