Digital eye and ear scopes to enhance physicians’ patient health assessments

April 23, 2021

Hillrom announced advances to its physical assessment tools with the launch of the new Welch Allyn PanOptic Plus Ophthalmoscope and the Welch Allyn MacroView Plus Otoscope.

Examining the structure of the eyes and ears is a critical part of assessing patient health. The new otoscope and ophthalmoscope enable brighter, larger views: a 20-times larger viewing area compared to the current Welch Allyn coaxial ophthalmoscope, and a three-times larger viewing area compared to the traditional otoscope.

The new Welch Allyn MacroView Otoscope features a new, one-of-a-kind, LumiView clear ear speculum, with four times the brightness through an adult speculum when compared to a standard ear speculum.

The MacroView Plus otoscope enables clinicians to move quickly from an optical exam to digital image capture. When used along with Hillrom's free iExamine Pro App, clinicians can securely save and share ear images for tracking, trending and easy consultations with specialists.

The PanOptic Plus Ophthalmoscope features Quick Eye Alignment technology to help better direct a patient's gaze. The innovative disc-alignment lights help the clinician direct and guide the patient's gaze, to help enable easier exams.

Tese devices are available in the U.S. beginning today and are scheduled for availability later this year in Canada, the European Union, the U.K., Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil.

Hillrom has the release.
