Planmeca is one of the leading dental care and dental imaging device manufacturers in the world. It has been utilising design as a strategic strength integrated into product development for a long time. This is evident in the user-centred design of its products: the needs of both patients and medical professionals have been taken into account.

The Planmeca Viso G5 imaging unit combines high-quality 3D imaging with comfort for patients. A new way of positioning the patient before taking an image and an algorithm to eliminate artefacts caused by movement allow for high-quality images. The amount of radiation the patient is exposed to is minimised through not having to take unnecessary images. Many technical innovations bring new opportunities in utilising images in planning treatment. The device excels in ergonomics, usability and performance.

Planmeca has been successful in combining state-of-the-art technology, user friendliness and positive treatment experiences for patients in its products. Utilising Planmeca’s consistent design DNA has made the company a pioneer in its field. The brand experience is all-encompassing and it sets the company apart in the global market.
