Surgitel will release the next generation ErgoDeflection Loupes in October 2022. The issue with current deflection loupes on the market is that they are too steep and will cause users to work very close to patient or have them leaning back in a non-ergonomic posture.
Surgitel engineers have created a brand-new prism design (patent pending) to give ErgoDeflection loupes a customisable 40 to 50-degree deflection angle to match the clinician’s ideal working angle.
These loupes come in the magnifications 3.5x and soon 4.5x (5.5x and 6.5x to come at a later date). The pantoscopic tilt of the lens helps to eliminate gaps between the face and bottom edges of the lens for better eye protection and wider direct view of work area when looking below the loupes. The rigid and lightweight titanium frames also help keep the optics precisely aligned.
In addition, ErgoDeflection loupes come with patented interchangeable working distance caps and are designed to meet certain requirements to give ergonomics, comfort, and safety. The ErgoDeflection loupes also come with Surgitel’s patented Ergo Fit Nose Pad System, which easily conforms over a wide variety of nose shapes.
