EIT Health-backed start-up prepares to launch their Y-shaped toothbrush

15th August 2019

FasTeesH receives Headstart funding

On 10 July 2018, FasTeesH, one of the winners of EIT Health Headstart funding for 2018, launched a pre-sales camapign for its new device, designed as an improvement on standard tooth brushes.

Through its use of innovative technology, the Y-brush is able to brush all teeth simultaneously, which ensures a more efficient clean in only 10 seconds, its makers say.

With its headquarters in Lyon, France, hometown to both founders, the FasTeesH startup specializes in health sector products. Before Y-Brush, the company created a medical device designed for people in hospitals and care homes.

That work led to the development and realisation of this new product, which is aimed at the general public. After three years of research, trials, and a successful pre-sales campaign, the creators of Y-Brush say the general market is ready for the next-generation toothbrush.

Find out more about their Kickstarter funding campaign or preorder the brush for yourself.

FasTeesH is one of the winners of Headstart 2018, an EIT Health Accelerator programme providing funding for early stage companies and SMEs to develop new products and services.
