New high performance ENT instruments from Riester
9 February 2010
Riester has launched a range of ENT (ear, nose, throat)
diagnostic instruments, the ri-scope L series of otoscopes and
ophthalmoscopes. This new range was developed with input from medical
doctors to ensure optical quality and an ergonomic design that is
comfortable and user-friendly.
All ENT instruments of the ri-scope L- series feature Riester’s brand
new LED technology that provides a whiter light, improving examinations
as a result of its enhanced image clarity and colour contrast.
The area under examination is shown in true-colour: the improved
red-colour contrast aiding a reliable and exact diagnosis. Lamps with
LED technology have a lifetime of at least 10,000 hours, compared to
20-30 hours with the alternative halogen and xenon lamps. ri-scope L
combines this energy efficient LED technology with a long lasting
lithium-ion battery to create a sustained high-power performance and
significant cost savings.
The range of Riester instruments
Light-weight lithium-ion batteries have the benefit of achieving a
considerably higher charging capacity and longer lifetime than regular
batteries and provide sustained high performance for up to 1200 charging
Riester has also introduced its brand-new rheotronic technology for
instrument handles. This new patent pending technology makes it possible
to power both LEDs and conventional bulbs electronically. This means
that the usage of all ri-scope L instrument heads is possible by one
handle only, no matter which kind of illumination is selected.
100% light output is guaranteed immediately after a slight turn of
the electronic switch and it is possible to regulate light intensity
very smoothly in both directions. An automatic turn-off function after
120s guarantees that LEDs, bulbs and the Li-Ion rechargeable batteries
are conserved and can be used as long as possible.
By this universally unique combination of LEDs, Li-Ion rechargeable
batteries and the rheotronic technology, Riester is able to offer the
reliable diagnostic instruments with a long lifetime.
All ri-scope L instrument heads can be used with C- or AA-handles,
making them portable, or with the Riester diagnostic wall mounted
