About our trial

Each toothbrush was used by 10 people. They were then asked how easy it was to use, how comfortable it was to grip and how effective it was at cleaning their teeth.

In the lab we assessed each toothbrush’s battery power and checked electrical safety.

Price guide is from a survey in July 2014.
