This month on CTV Tech talk we looked at gadgets that can help improve your health.
I’ve somehow slipped down a strange rabbit hole. Without even trying, I think I’ve reviewed nearly half a dozen different smart toothbrushes. And I still get requests to check out more. The latest to cross my desk is called Burst.
Burst is a sleek looking, jet-black brush rechargeable electric toothbrush that looks like it was born in the Matrix. Of course it’s got some smarts and some unique features too. The brush has a soft-looking brush head with… black bristles.
Everything about this brush looks cool, but it’s also got the features you need in an electric brush. Burst says it vibrates at 33,000 sonic vibrations per minute, which helps keep the brush from wearing down your teeth.

Vitastiq Vitamin Tracker
The Viqastiq pen is used by pressing the soft metallic tip against pressure points on your hands, feet and elsewhere (depending on how detailed a measurement you want to do). Your readings are monitored with an app on your smartphone so you can compare and contrast them
from day to day and week to week.
The overall intent is that you’ll use Vitastiq to measure trends over time. My testing culminated in a blood test to compare what Vitastiq was showing me, compared to what my doctor was able to measure.
What vitamins can Vitastiq detect and how accurate does the company claim it is? Click here to read more.
SleepPhones are soft, padded, wireless headphones designed to be worn in bed. These padded headphones have tiny speakers that sit over and above your ear so there’s nothing sticking in your ear all night to irritate you.
Inside the soft cushiony band are the two speakers and a Bluetooth module which controls the phones. The **Contest is closed)module is removable for re-charging via a micro USB cable.
SleepPhones are quite comfortable to wear and to sleep in. I’m a side sleeper, and as such have never been able to wear headphones to bed. I do listen to podcasts to fall asleep each night, so my solution is to play audio from my iPad’s speaker on low volume from the bedside table. Fortunately, my husband doesn’t mind, but I’d rather not subject him to noise.
With SleepPhones, I can lay comfortably on either side, and still listen to my shows, without disturbing my husband. Brilliant! There’s also no cords to get tangled up in overnight, another annoyance.
Do these sound like they can help you? Read my full review of SleepPhones for more info.
