DENVER—Denver Med Tech startup, Lumed Science has announced the successful launch of its first product, LEAP.

LEAP (Light Emitting Aspirating Prop) changes dental lighting by placing light where it is needed most—inside the patient’s mouth. The high intensity lighting is integrated into a highly engineered silicone bite block that provides patient comfort and great access for the doctor. LEAP is the world’s first dental light to be entirely sterilized in an autoclave before use. This prevents cross contamination, which is a major concern with alternative dental lighting systems.

“We have invested over 3,000 engineering and design hours perfecting LEAP before launching to the marketplace.” said Michael Bojanowski, co-­founder and CEO. “This lead to a simple and elegant technology that reduces procedure times, allows for better ergonomics for the dentist and creates a comfortable experience for the patient.”

Dental aid organizations and mobile dental clinics have also found benefit.

“I was very impressed with the thought you gave to the device and the simplicity, utility and practical nature of the device. I can see the device being useful not only in developed world dental offices but in simple third world clinics where illumination is often a problem.” said Peter Vanicek, DDS, clinic coordinator at Global Dental Relief. “I think your device is excellent and has a bright future ahead.”

There are 1.4 billion dental procedures requiring light in developed countries alone; Lumed Science strides toward supporting doctors to help them perform at their best. Typical procedures for LEAP include: oral surgery, tissue removal, partially edentulous patients, dental cleanings, operative, crown and bridge prep, implant placement and restoration, travel/mobile dentistry and more.

LEAP is a completely made in the U.S., with all design and development—taking place in the heart of Denver Colorado. Lumed Science expects to have registration to sell in the European Union in Q1 of next year and Japan by Q4 of 2016.
