During my study in Munich I met my current chief Prof. Helge Fischer Brandies and we developed a method for computer assisted bending of orthodontic archwires. One professional focus was realization of this. 1991 we contacted a Berlin development team under the direction of Rüdger Rubbert, Friedrich Riemeier and Norbert Geyer. It soon engaged mainly in the subject and also made own important innovations. One of the consequences was the foundation of Orametrix. After 2004 I also dealt with general possibilities for improvement of objectivity in medicine. A more detailed analysis disclosed important opportunities for improvements in the basics of precise descriptions of things. The vectorial (quantitative) description is clearly superior to the usual word based description regarding reproducibility, precision, classifiability and unambiguity and specially adapted to electronic communication, also due to its precise searchability by adapted search engines.
