(Belmont, MA, August 20, 2012) -- Firefly, a cutting edge manufacturer of medical microscopes, has introduced a new digital video otoscope
for ear examinations. The product, called the DE500 Digital Video Otoscope, provides the full functionality of a traditional otoscope, while also offering live videos and instant images for viewing on a PC.
“Our video otoscope
gives doctors instant access to highly magnified live view of the ear canal and the tympanic membrane,” said Rob Leahey, Marketing Director of Firefly Global. “The built-in snapshot button lets doctors save pictures and capture videos from ear exams, which are useful for diagnosis, patient education, and electronic medical records. In addition to general medical use, the DE500 is ideal for audiologists needing highly accurate views of the ear canal for fitting hearing-aids.”
The DE500 Digital Video Otoscope has a variable magnification range up to 150x digitally and up to 50x optically. It observes and records in real time, allowing doctors to educate patients and keep more accurate records. Priced at $349, it is designed to provide doctors with affordable access to the most sophisticated imaging technology.
“State-of-the-art digital otoscopes
have always been out of budgetary reach for primary care, pediatric, and audiology
practitioners,” Leahey adds, “Our DE500 offers the same advanced capabilities at a greatly affordable price”.
