Surgeons everywhere rely on stereoscopic operating microscopes that generate good three-dimensional views of details in recesses, narrow cavities and long channels. Here, the design needed in the first instance to be tailored to surgical operations performed in the third world, while also meeting the stringent requirements of more advanced settings. This called for a product integrating high-precision optics and a robust, ergonomic design.
Based on the partners’ knowledge of the market and applications the product was defined and developed into a small series of working prototypes for demo purposes. Next to excellent optical properties, the major requirements of the product included wearing comfort, optical adjustability and LED illumination.
We designed the product architecture and were responsible for the mechanical product development through the complete product documentation, including optics and illumination, on the basis of which 6 working prototypes were built that were used in market tests.
