REIMAGINING THE CONTROL

My main concerns when choosing a control mechanism were maintaining the sleek look, ensuring that the control cannot be accidentally changed when handling the toothbrush, and minimizing nooks and crannies that can be hard to clean.  I chose the control knob because it doesn’t ruin the overall look or feel of the product, it can only be changed if done so deliberately, and it is practical and easy to clean.
