Short description: An original prototype of a medical device for functional correction and rehabilitation of lower jaw joint disorders as a significant tool for complex treatment is being developed._x000D_
Market potential: Temporomandibular dysfunction is a syndrome causing pain and dysfunction in the temporomandibular joints and masticatory muscles. This is a public health problem affecting up to 11% of the population.
Timing: Often, the treatment options for temporomandibular dysfunction are limited, even with modern: pharmacological, physiotherapeutic, specialized physiotherapy, oral, and TMS surgical treatments.
Desired result: New discoveries of the biomechanical properties of TMS creates a systematic approach to a complex problem and developing new bioengineering solutions. The prototype is based on a new insight into the biomechanical properties of TMS than the mechanism of action of currently used devices.
Information on challenge owner: Micro SME (< 10 staff). Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country. Keywords: Biological sciences; Medical technology; Biomedical engineering; Medical / Health related; Patient rehabilitation / training
