Refurbished/Pre-owned TA-01 i-care tonometer
The Icare tonometer is based on a new measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary contact with the cornea. The measurement is barely noticed by the patient and often does not even cause corneal reflex. For ophthalmologists this is good news, because the device not only makes IOP measuring a more pleasant experience on all patients, it is also an important break-through for succeeding with non-compliant patients (f.e. children and dementia patients).
The easy usage and dynamic patient flow obtained by the Icare tonometer make it a very important instrument for general practitioners, optometrists, occupational health care and other medical personnel.
Requiring no drops, neither specialized skills for its use the quick and painless Icare tonometry has an important role in glaucoma screening programs of masses.
Icare tonometer maintenance
CLEANING THE PROBE BASE
Probe base can be cleaned by removing it from the tonometer and injecting ethyl or isopropyl alcohol through the probe base with a syringe. Before mounting the tube back into the tonometer make sure the tube has dried properly. Drying can be accelerated by injecting air through the probe base using a syringe or canned air.
Always use good quality non-rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries supply lower voltage and are not compatible with the Icare tonometer. Make sure batteries are loaded correctly; + terminals should oint down on the display side and up on the measurement side.
When the tonometer is not in use place it in the case or desktop stand, which protects the probe base from dust and other particles.
