Clinical Trial with Midwest ATC Handpiece Starting This Week

For the next few weeks we'll be putting a new handpiece from Midwest through our clinical testing process.  We'll push it as hard as we can to see if we can find any weaknesses.  This will involve, but not be limited to crown removal, endo access (especially through crowns), alloy removal, operative, and anything else we can throw at it.  We'll also be comparing it to our existing handpiece inventory of Prodrive handpieces, Kavo 635 with Prodrive turbines, and Lares 557's.
The Stylus ATC incorporates a couple of interesting technologies:
Speed-Sensing Intelligence (SSI) By incorporating SSI technology, Midwest Engineers added a sensor to the handpiece that connects to an electronic "brain" in the control source that constantly maintains bur speed according to load. It knows when to deliver more power.

Superior Turbine Suspension (STS) Midwest® optimized the axial preload with independent radial support to the bearings, providing unparalleled stiffness even at the highest load and speed without noticeable bur deflection or chatter.
