Tono-Pen Avia applanation tonometer, a device designed to diagnose glaucoma and other intraocular pressure disorders, is another winner of this year’s Medical Design Excellence Awards. Reichert Inc., a Depew, NY firm behind the device, explains the benefits of its hand-held instrument:
The TONO-PEN AVIA does not require daily calibration.
Accurate and Easy to Use
The TONO-PEN AVIA is designed to help eliminate operator error and functions in any position, making it ideal to use on all your patients, including those in beds or wheelchairs. Activated by the push of a button, the IOP measurement is displayed on two large, easy-to-read, LCD screens. Patients will appreciate the quick and gentle measurement process.
The TONO-PEN AVIA utilizes micro strain gauge technology and a 1.0mm transducer tip. The device displays the average of 10 independent readings along with a statistical confidence indicator, ensuring accurate, repeatable, and reliable tonometry results.
The TONO-PEN AVIA tonometer features the same proven accuracy as the clinically trusted TONO-PEN XL, but with a more ergonomic design, four times longer lasting battery, and larger LCD screens. The proven reliability of Reichert’s applanation tonometers allows operators to take IOP measurements confidently anytime, anywhere, and in any position.
