About Playbrush

Playbrush is a European technology start-up that helps children brush their teeth by making it fun. Since launching in 2015, we have been building and marketing smart technology, both software and hardware, which helps children improve their daily toothbrushing routine. The Playbrush device attaches onto the handle of any manual toothbrush and transforms it into a game controller – so that when children brush their teeth they can control mobile games via their own toothbrushing movements. Our games provide real-time and historic feedback enabling children to improve their brushing habits in a playful way, while parents experience a huge relief.
Playbrush is a technology startup funded by top-tier European investors, including venture fund Speedinvest and the Angel Investors Hansi Hansmann, Harold Primat and Markus Gnirck. We are supported by University College London, HRH the Duke of York and various renowned dentists all over Europe. We have won multiple international awards and have been mentioned in the press all around the world. Our press coverage includes Yahoo Finance naming Playbrush one of the most promising devices from CES 2017.
