Integration Broker (IB) software
A direct connection to PACS

  • Enables secure and accurate data transfer between the LENS System, PACS and EMR/HIS.
  • Designed to improve OR efficiency, IB can reduce data-entry errors by importing patient information directly from EMR.
  • Supports multiple ORs simultaneously and requires only light service on the network.


Sony 31-Inch 4K LCD Medical Monitor

Detailed and clear surgical images

  • Provides a clearer view of fine details than conventional medical monitors.
  • 4K outputs four times the pixel count of standard high-definition products.


Arthroscopes, VideoArthroscopes and High-Definition Couplers

Optimized viewing from the initial point of capture

  • Present more detail in recesses with exceptional brightness and even illumination.
  • Fog-free visualization, universal interface, easy-to-reach light posts, one-handed rotation.

 

Fluid Management

Reliable fluid management

GoFlo Pump
Consistent effective and efficient flow

  • Self-calibrates continuously to ensure settings are reproducible and reliable
  • Optimizes flow performance through automatic detection of any scope cannula
  • Simple interface, wireless remote, quick and uncomplicated tube-set connection

COBLATION Technology
