Marianne Granlund and Gunilla Taddeo, co-founders of ErgoMedi Ltd, are two Finnish Dental Hygienists that were frustrated by the uncomfortable and unergonomic working posture required by the suction tools available in the market for removing fluids from the dental patient’s mouth. Driven by desire to make working easier, they developed ErgoFinger®, a unique patented disposable aspiration tip that is attached to the dental professional’s finger.
