Comfortable Ophthalmic Procedures


This adjustable operating chair won the i-Novo Tech Award 2015 at Medica. Designed for ophthalmic procedures, EyeForce ‘s (PDF) sensitive controls enable the surgeon and his team to make precise adjustments to the patient’s position during surgery.

It comes with a molded headrest to ensure safe positioning, and an extension system prevents patients from sliding so there is no need to reposition them during surgery.

The foot-controlled chair can be operated even after the surgeons have scrubbed up. EyeForce also has an e-drive system with an electronic fifth wheel for easy maneuvering over long distances.
