Hey iDD community, some exciting news was just released.  Medit published their teaser trailer for their new scanner. The Medit i700 Wireless. Check out the video below.

What does this mean?

An exciting announcement no doubt.

This means we will be seeing a third wireless intraoral scanner released soon.

3Shape TRIOS pioneered the wireless IOS idea with their TRIOS 4 in 2019, and most recently Carestream Dental with their CS 3800 release. Now Medit is also following suit. Is wireless the next market trend for intraoral scanning devices?

Judging by its name this does not seem to be a completely new scanner but rather a wireless option for the Medit i700. This will likely be a nice device and not just a attachment to existing scanners.

Wireless is an interesting market trend as you have two schools of thought:

1) Wireless is a great idea to improve ergonomics and get rid of unnecessary clutter caused by wires and cables. It also helps circumvent the issues around scanner wires being damaged over time. Wireless scanners should be the norm when considering intraoral scanners due to all the benefits they provide.


2) Wireless is not all that its made out to be. Yes it improves ergonomics but it brings its own issues. Wireless scanners can have issues with connectively and you now have another set of batteries to make sure are charged up in your practice. Batteries also don't last forever as we all know...

What are your thoughts? Leave them in a comment below.

Regardless, it is an exciting time for the company and we look forward to sharing more info with you as soon as we can!

EDIT: the i700 Wireless has now been released! You can view our unboxing video/review here. If you want to see how all Medit's scanners compare to each other, click here!

  • I like the clean and neat use of wireless. If they can match the productivity of our wireless curing lights, then I'm all in!!
    For me, Edison and DC power win this battle.
