Protective surgical cap is a three layered polypropylene fabric. It provides a filter against the passage of bacteria providing a better barrier against cross infection. It protects light fluid contamination from splashing and spraying.
Prosthesis is an artificial substitute for a missing part of the body. It may be an internal replacement such as an artificial joint or an external replacement such as an artificial limb. Prostheses have evolved from wooden legs and hooks that replaced hands to sophisticated plastic, fibreglass, and metal devices designed to fit limbs amputated at different points. These may have working joints and allow motion either by amplification of electric current generated by muscle contractions or by actual attachment to the muscles. Arm prostheses usually allow some degree of grasping and manipulation. External or implanted breast prostheses are used after mastectomy.
Pelvimeter is an instrument shaped like calipers for measuring the dimensions of the pelvis. It is used for orientation and measurement of the innominate bone. This is a touch gauge with open arms and rounded-off ends which enables the measuring of width and depth of body dimensions.
Photocoagulator is a surgical instrument containing a laser for use in photocoagulation. It has a light source device and an ophthalmoscope device. The light source device and the ophthalmoscope device are optically connected to each other by optical fiber means adapted to transmit the light.
Retinometer is a laser interference instrument for determination of the visual acuity of the human eye. It has interference optical system for producing an interference light pattern mounted on a slit lamp microscope disposed on an instrument support that is finely adjustable horizontally and in height. This interference optical system consists of a laser light source and a rotatable turntable carrying a plurality of plane parallel plates or wedge plates which may be selectively moved into the light path of the laser light source to produce different interference patterns to be projected onto the human eye and which are then observable through the slit lamp microscope.
Portable pH/Temperature Meter is hand-held, battery-powered, microprocessor pH/temperature meter with LCD display. These meters are supplied with pH probe, temperature probe, buffer solutions, batteries and carrying case.
