Optics for laryngoscopes
Available from ASE Optics
ASE Optics offers expertise and knowledge in optical design and systems integration for different imaging medical technologies and devices. One of the examples is the re-design and improvement of the optical systems integrated into video laryngoscopes.
Our customer sought to improve the image quality of the Airtraq intubation device that offers a view of the glottis in complicated cases. Prodol needed an improvement in the optical system design to get clear and accurate diagnoses. The housing requirements are strict, since the overall system must comply, ergonomically, with human factors.
The system was optimized to work both in direct view mode and in digital camera mode.
Working closely with the customer’s engineering team we were able to understand the requirements and translate them into Optical performances specifications: the resolution improved by an order of magnitude and the magnification increased by 44%, increases ease of use in the intubation procedure.
