What I really liked about these Radius Intelligent Toothbrushes was the fact that they have a two minute timer on them to ensure that you are brushing your teeth for the amount of time you are suppose to be brushing for. I also liked the non-slip re-usable handle, which reduces waste by 93%! They have reversible handles for both right and left hand users. It comes in assorted handle colors such as: Red, Yellow, Black, White and Blue. These are kid friendly and are packaged in Smartcycle made from recycled soda bottles! Can’t really go wrong!
My first impression was “Wow, the head on this toothbrush head is enormous!” And after I used it, I still thought that. It is not uncomfortable but it is just different, I am not use to a head of a toothbrush being that large.
The Features of the Radius Toothbrush (taken off their site):
|2 minute timer — toothbrush beeps once and green light flashes once every 30 sec. to 2 minutes.|

A little History on Radius (taken off their site):
RADIUS was founded on the Caribbean island of Tortola. James O’Halloran and Kevin Foley were architects who were fascinated by the idea of a functional and enjoyable toothbrush. They were appalled at the small head, hard toothbrushes of the day. Research indicates that the major problem in oral hygiene is that of compliance – people don’t use toothbrushes for long enough and tend to keep their toothbrush for too long. Dentists believe that with diligence – teeth and gums could be perfectly maintained for a lifetime. The average
brushing time is from 31 to 65 seconds, depending on age or sex. The average toothbrush is thrown away after 10 months. RADIUS aimed to make the toothbrush comfortable,
enjoyable and effective. With a mass of very soft bristles, a large head area for low pressure brushing and a comfortable handle, this toothbrush would let you brush lightly and accurately.
So, I would not switch my brand, but it is an interesting toothbrush that is for sure. I really like that it is earth friendly too.
