Milestone Scientific Inc. provides technologies and solutions for the medical and dental markets in the United States, Canada, Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe. The company offers a proprietary, computer-controlled anesthetic delivery instrument, through the use of The Wand, a single use disposable handpiece. The instrument is marketed in dentistry under the trademark CompuDent, Wand Plus and STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) and in medicine under the trademark CompuMed. CompuDent is suitable for all dental procedures that require local anesthetic. CompuMed and Wand Plus are suitable for medical procedures regularly performed in plastic surgery, hair restoration surgery, podiatry, colorectal surgery, dermatology, orthopedics and a number of other disciplines. The instruments are sold in the United States and in approximately 47 countries worldwide. Product Platform STA Single Tooth Anesthesia Instrument The STA Instrument is a patented, computer-controlled local anesthesia delivery instrument that incorporates the ‘pressure feedback’ elements of the company’s patented CompuFlo technology, thereby allowing dentists to administer injections into the periodontal ligament space, effectively anesthetizing a single tooth. CompuDent CompuDent (also known as the Wand Plus internationally) is the company’s proprietary, patented Computer-Controlled Local Anesthetic Delivery (C-CLAD) instrument and predecessor of the STA Instrument. CompuDent delivers anesthesia at a precise and consistent rate below a patient’s pain threshold. CompuMed CompuMed is a patented computer-controlled injection instrument geared to the needs of the medical market and providing uses similar to CompuDent. CompuMed allows medical procedures, requiring intravenous sedation, to be performed with only local anesthesia due to dramatic pain reduction. The Wand The Wand handpiece is used in conjunction with the STA, CompuDent and CompuMed instruments. It is an ergonomically designed and patented handpieces that enables all traditional and newer injections, such as AMSA, P-ASA and Modified-PDL. The pen-like grasp of The Wand allows bi-directional rotation during injection, which prevents needle deflection that occurs with a traditional syringe.
