Leica introduces microsurgery microscopeDecember 13, 2018
Leica Microsystems has launched Provido, a multidisciplinary microsurgery microscope. Provido features FusionOptics technology that gives depth of field and detail perception at the same time. The illumination technology
brings light even to deep and narrow cavities. Having the full surgical field visible at once allows for better decision making and limits interruptions from readjusting the microscope. The surgeon can focus on progressing smoothly
through the procedure, according to the company.
Deep and narrow channels are a daily challenge in many surgical disciplines, particularly spine and otolaryngology. The microscope integrates concentrated 300 W xenon light and specially-designed Small Angle Illumination that helps limit peripheral shadows. As a result, surgeons are able to see more of the surgical field without constantly refocusing or adjusting the light. In addition, there is no longer any limitation when longer surgical instruments are required as Provido offers 600 mm of free working space.
The electromagnetic brakes and balancing system enables the Provido to be positioned at the required angle with the lightest touch. For even greater precision, micro adjustments can be achieved with the XY joystick control.
