Tesco released their revolutionary new Pro-Tech model toothbrush incorporating Timestrip technology that informs the user when to replace their brush. The Tesco Pro-tech model has a window that shows users when their brush is past its peak, as the word “replace” appears.
This Timestrip replacement reminder is more-effective than the method which bristles change colour, because bristles can be affected by certain water types and toothpastes.
Timestrip developed the unique indicator to fit into the toothbrush handle and visually alert users that it is time to replace your brush. The Timestrip was designed specifically for toothbrushes. Once activated, a red line will appear in the activation circle, followed by the word ‘on’. Once activated, the white strip will turn red and the word ‘replace’ will slowly be revealed. When 3 months is up, the word replace is fully visible and it is time to replace your brush.
